A: Winter accommodations in East Court (individuals) and Orchard Court (small groups) are available until April 30 for people looking for a time of personal retreat, quiet and contemplation. Wondering what it might be like to be at Naramata Centre in the winter? Read this recent comment on the winter stays:
"I just spent a wonderful 5 nights and 4 days at the East Court Cottage enjoying a winter retreat. One of the exceptional things of a winter retreat at Naramata are the individual facilities which allow you to 'retreat' at your own pace while also enjoying the lovely regional area in a kind of winter hibernation. The serenity of the seasonal slow-pace easily lends itself to a time of simplicity with God. I very much look forward to another opportunity in the future. Finally, the costs are reasonable and the volunteer staff are very helpful in assisting with minor particular needs.”
