Monday, December 27th, 2010

Religious retreats aren’t for just church groups anymore, according to “Budget Travel,” a religious retreat is a form of vacation for most professional travelers.

What to expect at most religious retreats:

  • Simple hotel rooms with a shared bathroom
  • Three meals a day
  • Unique property
  • Natural setting on 50+ acres
  • Minimum of six-hours on property for 1 retreat
  • Pattern of Friday – Sunday

At The National Conference Center, what to expect at your religious retreat:

  • Simple hotel room with personal bathroom
  • Three meals a day on property, ideal for retreats to avoid distribution of leaving the location for other meals. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available as well.
  • Unique 265,000 square foot property, originally the Xerox Training Center – this has been transformed into a quiet, peaceful center to accomplish your mission.
  • Weekend specials for Complete Retreat Packages

While on your retreat at NCC -

  • During your drive up to the facility, look for the family of deer roaming our 110 serene acres along the Potomac River Valley
  • Walk along the 1.3 mile path surrounding the center and take in the changing seasons of Northern Virginia
  • Write letters to friends & family and drop by the Postal Service on property
  • Enjoy the outdoor lawn for yoga during the day or star watching at night
  • Visit Sports Flex for indoor or outdoor team sports for your group, including an outdoor lap pool
  • If your retreat is nearing an end, allow the Front Desk to coordinate a private excursion to Historic Leesburg or the monuments of D.C.
  • Take a self-guided green tour of the center individually or in a group to see what makes the conference center eco-friendly (coming soon!).
