Frequently Asked Questions
Who can come to the retreat?
All KabU students are invited to attend: virtual and physical, beginners and grad students will all find this to be a life changing experience.
Can I bring friends and or members of my family to the retreat?
The retreat schedule and activities are geared to Kabbalah students.
You are welcome to register friends and family who wish to come and enjoy the camp and its beautiful surroundings but there will be no other organized program besides our planned Kabbalah activities. We advise you to take this opportunity to be fully engaged in the retreat activities, and of course, your friends and family members are also welcome to participate in the program.
Can I bring my Kids with me?
The retreat activities are not suitable for children under 18. There will be no special program for children.
What happens if I pay and I have to cancel?
All refunds will incur a cancellation fee of 25% of the registration cost which will be applied when received prior to September 21. Cancellations received less than 2 weeks before the first day of the retreat will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All cancellations must be sent to the retreat organizers at KabU@kabbalah.info
Can I make a down payment and pay the remainder in cash when I arrive?
The retreat can be paid in full via PayPal, credit card or by check. You may pay in cash upon arrival but you will not be able to take advantage of the Early Bird rate.
Will you be able to accomodate people with special dietary needs?
The meals at the retreat will be buffet style with great variety including vegetarian and gluten free options. If you have other special dietary requirements, please contact us at KabU@kabbalah.info We will do our best to try to accommodate your needs.
Is the Retreat Wheelchair Accessible?
The campsite is fairly hilly with gravel paths. Most of the retreat facilities including the cabins have stairs and are not easily accessible for a wheelchair-user. Having said that, If you are a wheelchair user and wish to participate in the retreat please contact us at KabU@Kabbalah.info to find out about accommodation alternatives at one of the nearby hotels. If you travel with a Caregiver, we will gladly accommodate them free of charge.
Can I request specific roommates? Can we choose who to share a room with?
The sleeping accommodations have separate cabins for men and women. We will try to honor requests for specific roommates in the same cabin, but please keep in mind that this is a retreat based on connection. Making new friends that share the same goal as yourself is a huge spiritual gift!
Can I have my own room?
The venue offers a limited number of private rooms which are reserved for students or staff members with special needs. Let us know if you require such special accommodations by sending an email to KabU@kabbalah.info
Where should I fly to?
We recommend flying to Newark International Airport. Please plan to arrive before 12:00 p.m. EDT. A chartered bus will be available at 12:00pm to take you to the Poconos Spring Camp. Reservations for the bus should be made as soon as possible as space is limited. Reserve your seat in advance by filling out this form.
How do I get there independently?
You can reserve a spot on the charter bus at Newark International Airport even if you are not flying in. If you don’t want to go to the airport, you can use public transportation from Manhattan or drive by car. Check out our travel page for further info.
