Wooded Glen Retreat and Conference Center

About us

Wooded Glen Retreat and Conference Center was founded in 2002 by Phyllis and Charles Garmon as the realization of a vision to establish an inspirational and special meeting center– where groups from all walks of life could come to retreat, connect, exchange ideas, and grow together.

Above and beyond that vision, the Garmons developed Wooded Glen to be a namesake memorial for their middle son, Glen Garmon, who lost his life in 1996 at age 27.

Today, Wooded Glen is in its second generation of family ownership, and its third generation of family operation.  People from all over the world have come to Henryville, Indiana to visit Wooded Glen as meeting and conference guests.

While venues of all types promote themselves as “conference centers”, Wooded Glen’s facilities and operations meet an actual industry standard.

Since 2007, Wooded Glen has been a proud member of a world-wide hospitality industry organization, known as IACC; www.iacconline.org.  IACC members are true conference centers that meet some 30 standards of membership criteria.

IACC-approved conference centers are specialized facilities that provide the best meeting environment for smaller groups (averaging 10 to 75 people).  A conference center is focused on offering facilities and services that cater to the exacting needs of a smaller meeting environment – such as:

    On-site lodging and dining facilities

    Specially-designed meeting rooms

    Comfortable meeting chairs

    Conference tables featuring a smooth, hard writing surface

    Audio-Visual (A-V) support

    Continuous refreshment breaks

    Bundled, per-person package pricing (what we call a Complete Meeting Package)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
