Carmel Valley Ranch Chapter Retreat

May 14 @ 5:00 pm - May 16 @ 10:00 am PDT

Join your EO friends for a weekend of fun, relaxation and reflection at the amazing Carmel Valley Ranch Resort! It will be a weekend for EO members, their families, and their dogs. During this event, you and your family will enjoy all that Carmel Valley Ranch has to offer and be as social, or not, as you like.

The event will begin on Friday with an informal gathering as people arrive; 4:00 PM -10:00 PM. There will be various optional activities on Saturday such as golf, hiking, Yoga, archery, bee keeping, and falconry. And there will be an organized dinner Saturday evening with some optional outdoor activities.


We negotiated a rate of $400 per night (not including taxes and fees) for a suite (normal cost is around $1,000).  Members will cover the cost of their stay at the reduced rate.  We are asking that you pay a $400 deposit toward your room when you register for the event (this deposit will show as a room credit for your stay when you check-in).

Many activities will be covered by the chapter and some will have a cost for members and families.  Activities with a cost will be billed to your room if you select them.  When you check in for your stay, the chapter will credit your room $200 to offset some activity costs.

All activities will take place outdoors as much as possible.

    Everyone will wear an armband:

  • Red = no physical touch
  • Yellow = do not shake hands or hug unless asked
  • Green= comfortable with hand shaking and hugs
  • Cancellation

    There are no refunds after April 30 2021 unless the event is completely cancelled by the chapter or by the resort.  To receive your $400 credit for your stay and the $200 credit for activities, you must attend the event.
