A time to reflect.

As the winter season gives way into Spring, new life begins to push it's way into view. The signs of this new life are almost imperceptible at first and over time seem to burst forth; a picture of what is often gestating in our own mind and hearts. Paying attention to what is growing beneath the cover of 'winter' and nurturing it's growth often takes time; Time to be quiet, time to listen, time to rest. The Mount Hermon Spring Reflective Retreat offers you the opportunity to spend time paying attention to your soul. Unlike other women's retreats, the Mount Hermon reflective retreats are designed to provide a quantity of time alone with the Lord.

While this retreat is designed to provide the space and quiet to nurture the soul, there are also ample opportunities for fellowship with like-minded women around great meals and free time. Mount Hermon's adventure facilities and popular recreation options like ocean kayaking are an option as part of your program. The Redwood Canopy Tours and massage are also an option for an additional cost.

Sequoia Adventure Course

The Sequoia Adventure Course is one of our most popular courses. It consists of 14 different high ropes elements that range from 30 to 80 feet above ground, and ends in a tandem (2 person) zipline. All elements are done with a partner. All participants wear harnesses, helmets, and are connected to overhead cables by a double system of safety ropes and clips. The course is supervised by our expertly trained staff. Participants must be 57 inches tall, less than 250 pounds and at least 10 years old.

Redwood Canopy Tour

Soar through the unique forest groves and experience the giant redwoods from 150 feet above the canyon floor and zipping through the trees. This is the ultimate shared experience as small groups are led through a two-hour experience of seven platforms, two skybridges and six zip lines of up to 440 feet in length. Participants must be between 75 and 250 pounds and at least 52 inches tall. There is an additional charge for Canopy Tour
