In March, I attended a small retreat at the Seabeck Conference Center. It’s located along the Hood Canal, about 15-20 minutes away from Silverdale. It’s a very beautiful area with 90 acres of land, and views of the Olympic Mountains on a clear day. It rained the majority of the weekend, but what else can you expect for a March?
The conference center was originally developed in the 1930’s as a location for YMCA, and YWCA camps. There are a few businesses across the street along the water. This is my second time staying at the conference center. It’s a pretty reasonably priced facility for a conference or retreat, although the accommodations are not plush by any means. I’ve always gotten an eerie feeling at this place. It’s like within the walls. and on the grounds there are whispering of a livelier, more prosperous time.
