You are warmly invited to participate in any of the retreats or workshops you see listed on the website. Check out upcoming retreats or the event calendar

At every retreat, you will…


… CREATE NEW FRIENDSHIPS. Whether you come by yourself, or come with a friend, you connect with interesting people. Building a sense of belonging and community is important at REC Retreats events. Enrollment is limited, allowing participants to become acquainted quickly and to form genuine friendships.


… LEARN. Retreats are themed - select your retreat and you are selecting a collection of activities likely to be of interest to you. (Each retreat is unique and activities will vary.) You are welcome to participate in every single activity, or you can sit a few out and enjoy the view instead. If you really like to stay busy, the studio will likely be open all night long (although you may be the only night owl taking advantage of it!)




… AWAKEN CREATIVITY. Clearing your mind of everyday worries helps open a space for thinking creatively. The ferry ride to Lummi Island transports you to a slower pace and a tranquil place, making it easier to put your everyday concerns on hold.

Make friends and start thinking outside of the box right away. Participate in activities as soon as you arrive to help you break through social and creative barriers. Find your room following clues provided in a scavenger hunt. Complete a few entries in the 3-D “UnJournal". Break the rules and write on the wall!



… PLAY. Every retreat is playful, but some retreats specialize in play and are specifically designed to remind adults how to simply play.

We LOve our Island COMMUNITY

Every REC Event "gives back" to the community. We give a little something, and encourage participants to bring something extra, as part of the event fee. Money or materials are donated to Lummi Island community organizations, or other non-profit organizations in neighboring communities such as the Lummi Nation, Ferndale or Bellingham.
