Discovery Community Summer 2019 Retreat

Celebrating Our Past, Imagining Our Future

Thursday, August 1, 5 pm - Sunday, August 4, 2 pm 

“Really perfect weekend. Right place, right food, right people.”
“Wonderful, extremely satisfying experience.”
“Total bliss beginning to end.”                
                     – quotes from 2018 participants

As gay men, we've faced a lot in the half-century since Stonewall. Some of us led the way. Some are just starting our personal journeys. We all face a world no one could have imagined 50 years ago, with both new freedoms and new challenges. Join us at the 2019 Discovery Community Retreat, for a little bit of soul-searching and a lot of fun and relaxation.You can take part in a full schedule of enriching workshops and activities or just take it easy beside the pool with friends old and new. Evenings will include music, games, and a Talent/No-Talent Show that's fun for everyone. At Wildwood Retreat Center, a gathering place for the LGBT community for decades, you can stay in a well-appointed lodge room or a tent. The retreat includes three meals a day from Wildwood's expert chef, served buffet-style indoors and out with casual seating. Come join us for celebration, community, and hope!

Just announced: Gregg Cassin will be our guest facilitator for large group workshops!
