St. Dorothy's Rest

Diocese Center for Conferences or Camp Retreats

For over a century, our diocese is blessed to have St. Dorothy's Rest, a wonderful facility for retreats, conferences, and summer camp in Occidental, CA. Several charming buildings can house groups ranging from 8 to 65 people in semi-private rooms. A group of 50 people may reserve the entire facility. Bathrooms are "down the hall", and each retreat building has a meeting room with a fireplace or woodstove. There are also secluded outdoor meeting areas, and a lovely old redwood chapel.
