    Hi guys! I noticed the website hasn’t been updated for the 2022 retreat. Just confirming it’s still happening and if anyone has a site for sale. Thanks!

    1. Hi Heidi,

      My apologies on the delayed response. The site is updated with the Fall 2022 and 2023 dates. I do not know of anyone who has a site for sale. But you can contact the beach directly to see if they have any last minute cancellations. Thank you for the heads up.
