Your most authentic self! If you are staying overnight, we will provide you with bed linens and towels. If you are on medication, we suggest that you bring it with you as the nearest 24-hour pharmacy is about 20 minutes away. As for additional snacks and such, there is a grocery store only 3 miles away!
Our furniture is allocated to specific buildings. If you need additional chairs/supplies consider contracting with a local vendor such as Down East Tent Rentals, LLC for outdoor furniture.
We’re fortunate to be in an intentional relationship with our local law enforcement agencies. That relationship includes their active participation in our Just Food Program, where they are able to share food with local community members who are most impacted by food insecurity, and also doing safety and wellness checks. While our campus functions as a Social Justice Conference & Retreat Center, it remains open to local community members who use it for their health. The Whitakers Police Department and Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Department help our Active Lifestyles Program participants who are walking, jogging, hiking, fishing, or biking on our 244 acres of land. They are here to help. Don’t be surprised if they stop and say hi!
