Best Friends Program
About This Event
Many of our guests come to Easton Mountain several times a year. Some plan their leisure time for the entire year ahead of time, others are more spontaneous. Some come for one or two weeks for our summer camps, others like to come for several weekends during the year. If you would like to come to three or more of our programs in the next 365 days, then the Best Friends Program is for you. For a full year (from the date of purchase), it gives you one price for every Easton Mountain program you can fit into your schedule.

Menu/CuisineMeals are provided three times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available. We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
Snacks such as cold cereals, fruits and nuts, along with coffee, assorted hot teas, chilled water, and iced tea, are available 24 hours a day in the dining room.
