Conferences & Retreats

For those who are wishing to seek an ideal retreat space in North Carolina where they can escape from the world, the Betsey-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center offers retreats. These retreats can be centered around religious, familial, corporate or professional gatherings.

Our Conference and Retreat Facilities in North Carolina include two classroom spaces, a large multipurpose meeting room, a spacious recreation hall, and all the necessary accoutrements, from tables and chairs to audio-visual equipment. We also have eight heated cabins with modest community sleeping spaces, and adequate bathroom space each accommodate up to 24 individuals, for a total of 192 beds on site. Our family-style meals in the dining hall create a sense of community amongst those on the retreat. Betsey-Jeff Penn's kitchen staff will gladly satisfy the culinary desires of the group, allowing participants to carry on their own programs and business without concerns over minor detail.

For more information or for pricing details, please contact the Interim Center Director:

A campus map, floor plans and cabin pictures may also help in planning your event.

Of course, some groups want to add a bit of Penn's own programming into their visit. Most often this is some version of the Soaring Thru Spaces program, including the teambuilding, high ropes and character development challenges. While most of our efforts in this program are spent with middle school and high school students, it has also been quite successful over the years with numerous collegiate groups and corporate groups.
