Summer 2019 Program

June 29, 2019 - August 31, 2019
Offered by Naramata Centre

June 29 – August 31, 2019

Naramata Centre, located on the shores of Lake Okanagan, is an inclusive, welcoming place to connect and deepen in mind, body and spirit.  This summer enjoy one of our week-long programs or personal retreats. Walk our labyrinth and visit our Chapel. Do yoga or play on our beach. Jump into the lake. Snooze or read in the shade under our canopy of trees. Sink into community, reuniting with old faces and make new friends.

Each week we will come together to create community starting Sunday evening with our Welcome Circle. During the week you will have the opportunity to participate in worship, afternoon games, evening activities, pot-luck dinners, family disco’s, etc. all while supported by our Music Leaders, Spiritual Leaders, Campground Hosts, Summer Leaders, and the amazing staff, volunteers and other participants at Naramata Centre.

Note: Summer accommodation bookings (June 29 – August 31 2019) are for a minimum 7 nights consecutive stay, Saturday to Saturday.
