Retreats & Events

Please click on our events to find out more about these retreats, which are sponsored by the Bon Secours Retreat and Conference Center. If you would like information about scheduling a group conference to come to our Center, please call 410-442-3120. Conferences are distinguished from retreats because the group comes to our center for the facilities, lodging and/or meals, but they have their own presenter and attendees. Retreats are events that we plan here at the Center and that are open to the public to attend.

To maintain an atmosphere of quiet relaxation, we are an adult-only Retreat & Conference Center. Our retreat and event registrations are only open to those who are 18 and over. Please also note that only certified service animals are permitted during your stay. Thank you.

For more details, additional programs and registration information please call: 410.442.3120
