Retreat Fees and Sliding Scale

Vallecitos provides a sliding scale for participants to choose the individual amount they are able to pay. The low end of the scale covers just over 80% of the actual cost of the retreat. The high end of the scale represents our actual cost plus an additional 15%. This allows us to offer low cost retreats for those who need it. For those who can pay more, their contribution supports our general operations and Scholarship Fund so that we may offer retreats to those who would not be able to attend otherwise. The retreat cost is inclusive of all meals and accommodation.

Financial Assistance 

We offer a sliding scale pricing structure to help make retreats affordable for those who are not able to pay a higher amount. In addition, we offer various scholarship and fellowship opportunities to support those who require additional financial assistance. Visit our Scholarship page.

Registration Process

Please see our retreat schedule to select a retreat. From the retreat’s page, you will be able to click on the “Register Now” button to register for your chosen retreat. Please note that a 50% deposit is required to complete your registration and reserve your spot. If paying your deposit causes a hardship, please contact us.

Cancellations Policy

  • 45 days prior to retreat: Full refund, minus a $100 cancellation fee
  • 44-15 days prior to retreat: Half refund

It is possible to transfer from one retreat to another. Please keep in mind that transfer credits are valid for one year and one transfer. There are no refunds for transfer credits. See the transfer schedule below:

  • 44-15 days prior to retreat: Full credit, $100 fee

Wait List Policy

If a retreat is full, we highly encourage you to sign up for the wait list as more often than not we end up offering a spot due to cancellations. No deposit is required to be placed on a waiting list. If an opening occurs, you will be notified with specific parameters on how and when to confirm your attendance. Your reservation is not guaranteed until the registration form is completed and deposit paid. In any case, please let us know immediately if you decide you no longer wish to attend.

Adding Items or Paying Your Balance

To add items such as shuttle or comfort pack, please contact us with the details of your request. We will send you a statement with a link to pay for additional items. Please know that any balance due within 30 days of the start of the retreat will be automatically charged to your credit card.
