Retreats – Groups- Facility Rentals
Cal-Wood’s remote and breathtaking setting combined with cozy accommodations and delicious food create a perfect atmosphere for an organizational retreat for 20 to 200 guests. Groups find they accomplish more in their time at Cal-Wood because of the lack of distraction and the abundance of natural inspiration.
Cal-Wood has built upon our legacy of providing environmental and STEM education using our pristine 1200 acres as our outdoor classroom. As our expert staff leads children through hands-on, field-based exploration of local plants, animals, fire ecology, forestry, geology, and pond ecosystems, they gain a greater appreciation of the environment and the tools to become future stewards of the earth.
