Where is retreat? Retreat begins at a private location (address disclosed upon booking) outside of East Glacier Park near the town of Babb, Montana. Your retreat will have you both on-site at our location and also on the trail. Due to the high variability of weather and fire conditions in this area, our trail selection will not be made until just prior to retreat.
What are the accommodations like? We will provide tent camping. Accommodations are minimalist allowing for a deep connection to the natural world around you.
Do I need to have experience camping? No. You will learn everything you need to know on-site.
How much hiking will we do? Total miles hiked are estimated at 12. However, location, trails, and distance are dependent on weather and fire conditions.
What should I bring? You can find our full supply list HERE. You will also receive a copy of this list upon registration. Many camping items are available for rental if you would prefer not to purchase them. We do not offer rentals, however, a quick google search will provide you with several companies who do.
