The Gaea Retreat Center is a place that many call a second home. A place for them to walk proud and be happy with who they are. They come to find comfort in friendships and to find a peace with nature. In these troubled times of war and financial crisis, Gaea's arms embrace even more looking for a solace.

The fact that she not only survives during these times but continues to make improvements for the betterment of the land, and the many loving individuals that walk her wonderous trails or breath in the beauty of a sunset is a testament to her beauty.

Each year, the winter season is the hardest for us, as campers come out less due to the cold weather and the festivals wait for the ground to thaw. This is the time of year where we try to stretch everything we can to make it to the next summer. Which we then spend working to build up enough to make it through the next winter.

Your financial support helps us to make Gaea possible for all!

Each year we operate on a budget that has us short of making it through the year but somehow, with the communities help, we make it happen.

There are many ways you can financially help camp. Sometimes without even spending a dime out of your pocket!
