Retreat Overview

Heritage Retreats was founded in Yosemite National Park in 2000. Since then we have explored many beautiful parts of North America.

This summer we will be exploring Zion and Bryce National Parks in Utah.

We have selected some of the finest Torah educators in the world as well as a well seasoned guide for this experience….

A base camp within Zion National Park will be utilized for daily living activities including meals, learning, workshops and tent sleeping. A base camp allows easy access to supplies, transportation and other resources as a result there will be NO need to carry supplies in heavy backpacks. We will only be doing day hikes.

Each day will combine Torah learning, group challenge based initiatives, day hikes and exploration.

We will be spending FridaySunday in a very comfortable hotel just outside of the park.

We will be flying into Las Vegas, Nevada.

Space is extremely limited Apply Now!
