Since 1942, Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center has been providing a place for rest and renewal to pilgrims along life’s journey. We are located on the beautiful Kittatinny Ridge of eastern Pennsylvania near the Delaware Water Gap and the Pocono Mountains region. Our retreats, our hospitality, our beautiful vistas and our sacred ground have blessed and continue to bless countless lives. Kirkridge’s emphasis from the beginning was the integration of contemplation and action for justice, or “Picket and Pray.” Those early pilgrims and seekers who came to Kirkridge understood that the life of faith requires not only action to transform the world toward greater shalom, but also the cultivation of a deep spirituality to sustain that compassionate action. The legacy continues today.

With a wide variety of programming and a growing constituency of folks from many faith traditions, we celebrate our presence
as a Christian center with an ecumenical spirit and an inter-faith welcome. We hope to welcome you soon to this sacred space called Kirkridge. Accommodations: Double rooms and twin beds in 4 facilities for private retreats, some with fireplaces, kitchens, mountain views.  Groups of up to 96 are accommodated in larger facilities.  Three nutritious meals served a day (no red meat). Rates vary.
