The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center remains vigilant

about offering a safe and hospitable experience for our guests.

We thank you for your trust and your partnership.

We look forward to welcoming and inspiring you during your visit.

Measures The Mountain Is Taking:

  • Employee and Volunteer Health Precautions:

    • Updates from the State Health Department and CDC are shared with The Mountain community, with information incorporated into ongoing practices.

    • All full time Mountain staff have been fully vaccinated.

    • The Mountain has COVID rapid test kits in the event of symptoms outlined in the CDC and State standard health protocols.

    • In the case of a positive test result, the staff member or volunteer would be expected to quarantine until a negative test result is confirmed, or at least ten days after first symptoms, per CDC guidelines.

    • Mountain staff and volunteers will wear protective masks in indoor spaces as recommended by the CDC and State guidelines. 

    •  Sanitization stations are available, and hands washing is encouraged upon arrival at designated work place, continuing this practice throughout the day as indicated.


  • General Precautions: 

    • Guests and staff try to maintain six-foot distance between yourself when possible.

    • Face masks are to be worn in the Main Office and Store space, as well as in the Dining Hall until being seated for your meal.

    • In the Dining Hall, a compostable glove is worn to serve yourself.

    • Wash hands frequently and/or use hand sanitation measures supplied at stations throughout The Mountain.


  • Cleaning and Hygiene Measures: 

    • Antibacterial cleaners are used in the cleaning and maintenance of guest spaces.

    • Please provide your own mask. The Mountain has a limited amount of single-use  masks available.  Masks will be required when entering the Mountain's Main Office and Gift Shop space, as well as in the Dining Hall line to receive your meals. Once you have moved through the cafeteria line masks may be removed for dining. During "in session" time, the use of masks is not required by The Mountain and is up to the discretion of the event leaders. 

    • The Mountain will provide dedicated hand sanitizing stations throughout campus. However, we do recommend bringing your own personal hand sanitizer with you.
