Tradition(s): Quaker, but open to all.
Accommodations: Dormitory style. I was in a single room
Facilities: Campus style that can accommodate several groups simultaneously. They host meetings as well as retreats.

There were 2 other groups there while we were, but I only saw them from a distance when they were out on the jogging trails.
Physical Setting: Woodsy suburban in the suburban Philadelphia locale that inspired
