The Menucha Retreat and Conference Center is nestled among the towering trees of the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area. Menucha lies 25 miles east of Portland, near the small city of Corbett. The main lodge, where you will be staying, is spectacular. Perhaps our site's greatest attraction is its surrounding 100 acres of property, which include fabulous Gorge views, hiking trails, a tennis and basketball court, swimming pool, and a volleyball court. Participants share rooms and eat family-style. Information about the retreat location is available at www.menucha.org.

Already signed up?

To make the most of your experience at the seminar, a little preparation is in order (that's right, homework). Use the link below to download (in pdf format) a brief but essential assignment.

Pre-Conference Homework

Need Directions?

By Car - Directions are on the website of the conference center at www.menucha.org.

By Air or Train - We provide a shuttle service to and from the Portland (PDX) airport and train station on Sunday afternoon and on Thursday after the seminar. Plan to arrive before 2 PM on Sunday and depart after 3 PM on Thursday. If you choose to arrive early or stay later to explore the area, MAX (Metropolitan Area Express) trains run from the airport to downtown and various hotels provide a free shuttle service.
