Because our community partners are committed to the health and restoration of local habitat, and we are a net-zero kitchen waste retreat center, we want to attract groups to stay with us that value our efforts to be ‘green’.

Craigville Retreat Center is a retreat center in the heart of Cape Cod managed by UCCR. Located in the heart of an environmentally significant area with amazing birding and nature activities, as well as pristine beaches and recreational opportunities, Craigville Retreat is a photographer and nature-lover's dream. Hosting groups of all sizes in its clean, comfortable accommodations and serving a customized menu, the Center offers multiple lodging options and indoor/outdoor meeting areas for all seasons. Small groups may also enjoy the ability to cook their own meals if they choose.

The Craigville Community recently announced their goal of becoming 100% sustainable to support the natural waters, wildlife and community and is moving forward with this exciting plan. "Because our community partners are committed to the health and restoration of local habitat, and we are a net-zero kitchen waste retreat center, we want to attract groups to stay with us that value our efforts to be ‘green’.” says Matthew CastleMan, retreat center director. This means that all waste produced will be either composted or recycled, with the intention to reduce the creation of any actual waste. Buying in bulk, reducing non-recyclable packaging, and avoiding single use plastics is also a high priority. Craigville Retreat Center is a leader in modeling best ways for waste reduction, and environmentally sustainable business practices for the rest of the surrounding village.

Craigville Retreat is part of a community that includes wonderful walking trails through the quaint village and around the community green. The Red Lily Pond, adjacent to the dining facility, is an inviting place to take meals outdoors on the banks of the pond, which features marshlands with a lovely birdwatching area, a short walk through the woods near historic Craigville Tabernacle, and the beach a quick walk down the hill. Other outdoor opportunities include observing the historic herring run, checking out turtles in the lily pond and sunset views that makes for a wonderful and relaxing stay at Craigville Retreat for any group.

Guests can borrow the Natures Knapsack, a backpack full of educational activities to discover and enjoy the local flora and wildlife.
