Retreat Registration


Gear up for your best summer adventure yet! EWB's regional retreats are the best place to learn more about EWB's strategy, challenge your thinking on development, build your leadership skills, push your personal growth, and connect with other EWBers in your region to build greater synergy and strategy. On top of this, our retreats all have a beautiful natural backdrop: imagine conversations about your aspirations for your chapter taking place around a bonfire, or an intense discussion about water access while swimming in a lake!

Retreats are designed for a wide audience of people across our network; whether you are a new chapter member, highly involved, or an "alumni". We consider this a "must-attend" event for chapter executive team members; we understand this may not be possible for everyone due to extenuating circumstances, but we do expect a high level of participation across student chapters and city networks.

Please note that your chapter president, or national office staff, can write letters to your employer or professors explaining the importance of the retreat, as well as the benefits you will gain as their employee. They will not be disappointed!

In terms of travel, discuss this with your chapter team, or each team of retreat coordinators can work with you to help arrange carpools or transportation to the retreat. If you have general questions email or please see below for retreat coordinator info.

Additional information on each retreat (cost, location, and time) will be displayed when you select the retreat below.


Retreat registration is done online, with payment by credit card. Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints, cheques and cash are not accepted. Depending on your chapter, some of your costs may be subsidized by the chapter finances (like for National Conference) - but this is a decision for your chapter team to make.
