Carmen Brantley Memorial
Retreat Scholarship

Carmen Brantley, an amazing young woman with a big heart and independent spirit, embodied Retreat in the Pines mission of friendship, respect and love. Though her life was tragically cut short, Carmen continues to inspire all who knew her, to live life with grace and authenticity.

In honor of Carmen we invite you to apply for our retreat scholarship program.

We believe all women have the right to retreat.
If your personal financial circumstance are such that you need financial assistance, please follow the steps below to apply for our Retreat Assistance.

What is the Retreat Assistance program?

The Retreat in the Pines Retreat Assistance program was established to bring retreats to women who are in need of a weekend to relax, restore, and retreat, but lack the financial means to do so. Unfortunately we can’t offer assistance for specific dates or retreats, instead we offer retreats and dates that have openings. Once you are approved, we will notify you of the available retreat and date.

Only applications following all of the steps below will be considered.

How does the Retreat Assistance program work?

  • Covers partial or full cost of the retreat, only.
  • We do not provide travel to the retreat, if you receive assistance you are responsible for your travel arrangements.
  • No travel or any additional expenses are covered.
  • An approved applicant can only attend one retreat.
  • Once committed to a retreat, there are no options for rescheduling.
  • Applications are accepted via email. No phone calls please.
