Summer Retreat Application Policy and Procedures

Priority Deadline:  June 1, 2021.  Applications received after June 1, 2021 may not receive a t-shirt or all requested accommodations. All requests for accommodations should be submitted via your application by June 1, 2021.  Applications received after the priority deadline must pay an additional $30 late fee.

Commitment Fee: $120 before June 1, 2021 or $150 after June 1, 2021.  This is a nonrefundable fee.  Your commitment fee covers 21 meals during the week, 7 nights of lodging, city bus passes on select days, and a t-shirt.  Our total cost per participant is approximately $235.00.  About 50% of the cost of attendance is covered by donations, fundraising, and sponsorship from community organizations.   

The EYE Retreat is open to any person with a visual impairment or coexisting disability on a space-available basis. The EYE Retreat does not discriminate on the basis of intellectual or athletic ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, disability, proficiency in English, or any other basis prohibited by law.  However, the President/Director or designated committee reserves the right to deny any application at their sole discretion  

Once all available slots are filled, applicants will be placed on a wait list. Students will be admitted from the wait list as places become available in the order that the applications were received. Participants may reapply to attend the EYE Retreat more than once, but those applications are accepted at the sole discretion of the President/Director or designated committee in accordance with program availability.
