Redwood trees love the rain. They get greener, release aromatics into the air and you can almost hear the growth in their needles. And the many creeks that snake through the 311 acres of Enchanted Hills become full and raucous, a wonderful thing to behold.
Come experience the beauty and natural cacophony of Enchanted Hills in the winter months. Throughout the rest of the year, Enchanted Hills is a bustling place, full of blind campers having fun, trying new things, meeting mentors and other blind kids like them. But in the winter, things on Mount Veeder slow down a bit and it’s a perfect time to hold that family reunion, church retreat or corporate off-site you’ve been planning. With indoor amenities, lodging and delicious meals, Enchanted Hills Retreat is an affordable and beautiful place to bring your group of 30 to 100, and there are discounted rates during January and February.
And you know what’s even better? Your retreat in Napa supports the life-changing programs for blind campers at Enchanted Hills.
It’s been an outstanding summer at Enchanted Hills. Camp sessions focusing on intensive learning like Music Academy and STEM Camp have been sandwiched between traditional camp sessions for kids, families and blind people of all ages.
Now that the campers are going home to school and work, there are some openings for groups to come and enjoy the beauty and solitude of Enchanted Hills. And your family reunion, wedding, religious group or company gathering will support the life-changing programs of Enchanted Hills.
Enchanted Hills Retreat is intimate and private. Time goes a little slower on Mt. Veeder, filled with peaceful walks through the Redwoods, games of horseshoes, gatherings in the KIVA and delicious meals in our dining hall. There is WIFI if you need it, or you can totally unplug.
Accommodations feature 6 duplex cottages and other lodging. You can even have a campfire and s’mores at your request.
