Heritage Retreats Inc dba University Heritage Society
September 17, 2011

I was first given the opportunity to attend Heritage Retreats in Santa Barbara, CA in December 2009. A last minute addition to the program, it really blew me away. What I thought was going to be a fun week long vacation in California turned out to be just that, and so much more. It was the perfect balance of fun and learning, but it was the people (both staff and program participants) that really made it amazing. It was so great, I even went back the next year!
