About This Event

In 2018, Naramata Centre celebrates 70 years as a place of learning, sharing, contemplation, personal growth and spiritual renewal. This is cause for celebration, and celebrate we will!

We invite you to join us on Saturday, June 23 for an event to celebrate the Centre’s 70 years and set the stage for another 70 years to come. We have planned a full day of activities in the spirit of the words of Dag Hammarskjöld: “For all that has been, thanks. For all that is to come, yes!”

At part of the day, we will also be holding our 2018 Annual General Meeting.

Whether you’re a long-time Centre participant, a former staff person, a local resident, or totally new to the Centre, we would love you to share this day, or part of it, with us.

If you are traveling from out of town to attend our celebrations, we are offering special one- and two-night bookings for our Maple Court motel-style rooms and all of our campsites for the nights of June 22 and June 23. (If you would like to stay longer than the two nights, or book a Cottage Court or East Court cabin, we would love to have you stay for longer! You can book a 3-night or longer personal retreat by clicking here for indoor accommodation and here for campsites. Please also RSVP to this event as a “staying offsite” guest, so we know you will be attending.)

Our celebrations will begin at 10 a.m. and conclude at 10 p.m., including a bring-your-own-lunch picnic at the beach and a potluck supper in Creekside Commons. We will be holding worship at 1:30 and the formal AGM will start at 2:30. In between will be a number of anniversary events lovingly planned by our 70th anniversary committee. We welcome you to join us for any or all of these activities.

      Basking in Words: Poetry for a Summer Morning

    Basking indeed! This course was a week of soul satisfying poetry reading and enriching conversation skillfully facilitated by Tim Scorer. I laughed, cried, learned, and was moved by the power of words from a diversity of poets and participants. I felt connected to Naramata Centre throughout the week and to my creative centre. I didn't want the course to end. So grateful!

      Family Reunion 2018.

    Our family from far and wide, had a reunion the second week of July 2018 at the Naramata Centre at Naramata BC with some of us camping and the rest of us in the motel style accommodations. We all had a great experience and a good time in an ideal setting! The staff and the accommodations were great! We plan to go back again.
