Create a Retreat Schedule to Stay on Track
- What time are we allowed to be on site, and what time do we need to be off-site?
- When are our assigned meal times?
- What activities are available at the retreat center and what times are those activities available?
- How many sessions/talks/meetings do we need to fit in?
- How much free time do we want to give?
- What do our evenings look like? Do we want to do ziplining, a campfire, or have some snacks, or do a private pool party, etc.? What options does the retreat center have for the evenings?
- Does our schedule correlate with the retreat center’s schedule?
