Retreat 2023 FAQs

How far away is it, and how do I get there?

Frank. A. Day camp is located at 125 S Pond Rd, East Brookfield, MA 01515. It is an approximately one hour drive from CDT. You can check out the drive by clicking here.

Will the site and the activities be wheelchair-accessible? 

The terrain is uneven and the camp is large, so depending on what type of wheelchair you have, it may be unsuited to the grounds. More information about the accessibility of activities will be made available once the activities and their locations are confirmed. If you have any specific questions or concerns about accessibility, please contact retreat coordinators Suzi Dargon-Hart and Rebecca Byard at

Can I bring my pet?

Unfortunately no pets are allowed. If you have a service animal, please contact the retreat coordinators to discuss accommodations.

What should I bring?

A complete list of what we recommend to bring to the retreat will be available in the coming weeks. 

My family has special food restrictions, do I have to pay for food at the retreat?

You are welcome to bring your own food (no alcohol) to replace or complement what is provided. Our cost per meal is $11. We are asking members to contribute on a sliding scale to reflect their ability to pay, so please choose the amount that seems right to you.

What if it rains?

If the weather is predicted to be terrible, we will cancel no later than 9:00 am on Friday, June 2. If the weather is drizzly, we will continue as planned and remind you to bring umbrellas. We have the ability to hold many activities inside with windows open if necessary.

What are the COVID protocols?

As a congregation, we will be extra cautious in order to enable as many congregants as possible to participate. Happily, many of our members are fully vaccinated. However, we also have many attendees who are not eligible for vaccination as well as other immunocompromised/high risk attendees who still depend on the community to take precautions to protect them. In order to balance the loosening CDC and MA state requirements along with our obligation to protect our more vulnerable members, our final policies will be detailed below as soon as they are confirmed.
