We offer several programs during your stay at our retreat. Groups can choose one program for every two nights of their stay. Each of these programs can be part of a single-day retreat itinerary. Contact us if you would like to discuss customized programs for your group outside of our standard choices.

Book 2 nights at Retreats by the Sea and spend 1 of the nights in Victorian city of Cape May. See Congress Hall fully decorated for the Christmas season. Take any one of several tours offered in Cape May including the holiday light tour or the tour of the Physick Estate. Retreats by the Sea will book your tour and provide you and your group of at least 8 people with a shuttle from the retreat to Cape May. The retreats rooms will also be decorated for the season to add to your experience.
$100 per person for each night for this program.
Adventure Course & Zipline (Ages 10+)
Get the best of both worlds with an adventure course and zipline-only course combo ticket. Participants ages 10 and up, who meet our reach requirement, navigate through a series of progressively difficult aerial obstacles. Climbing walls, rope swings, cargo nets, barrel crawl, wobbly bridges are just a sample of what you will encounter at varying heights above the ground. Our ground patrol staff encourage you and offer guidance if necessary to help you achieve your personal best.

Whale Creek is a protected waterway in the back bay behind Strathmere NJ. The creek offers a calm paddle in wetlands inhabited by Osprey, Oyster Catchers, Egret, Least Terns, and Black Skimmers. There are nearby sandbars to get out and explore for even more wildlife. We will provide a guide to educate your group throughout the experience.
Guided Beach/Wetland Clean-ups
We will provide expert guides who will take your group to nearby beaches and/or wetlands and educate the group on the importance of the coastal/wetland environment and our responsibility to be caretakers of these vital resources. These outings can include information on the wildlife in these ecosystems as well as information on how best to protect these areas.
