Directions: If you’re driving, take the Corbett Exit #22 from Interstate 84. Go up Corbett Hill Road to top of hill, left at fork onto the Scenic Hwy. After 1 1/4 miles turn left into Menucha Retreat Center. The Creative Arts Community no longer provides rides to and from Menucha.
Dormitory style -- usually 3 to 4 per room and somewhat rustic, unless you have requested and paid for an upgraded accommodation (private or semi-private). Bathrooms are often shared but your bunk bed is all yours, both top and bottom. Most buildings have a refrigerator, microwave and coffee/tea available 24 hours each day in a gathering area. Bring your own towels and single bed bedding unless you have pre-arranged to rent bedding or have a semi or private room.
Meals are healthy, delicious, and generous. You should be on time as a courtesy to others since many meals are family style. Campers all take turns serving tables in the evening. Alternative diets are available, but must be paid for before camp. You can purchase them on our website. You must fill out this alternate diet request form so Menucha can arrange for your personal accommodation.
Include a swimming pool, tennis court, volleyball court, wooded and paved trails and Gorge viewpoints for sunrise and sunsets. There is a grand piano and we encourage you to bring your own musical instruments as well. There is a coin operated washer & dryer. Soap may be purchased in the Menucha gift shop. There is a computer and printer in Wright Hall and a copier for class work The Menucha Gift Shop has snack bars, souvenirs and toothpaste. The Corbett Store, just 1/2 mile from camp, can provide much, including a very fine wine selection. Wi-Fi is available in most buildings.
We welcome people of all abilities, but please note, the Creative Arts Community does not have the capacity to help participants that need assistance to get around campus. Due to its rustic nature, independent mobility skills are required to navigate the grounds at Menucha.
