Information and Registration

The A.R.E. Summer Seabeck

includes rustic lodging, family  style meals, innovative programs, and fun-loving activities surrounded by A.R.E. friends in a rural retreat style setting.

Attendees find time their most treasured gift here during the warm, sunny days of Seabeck. Leaving  daily life behind opens up rare opportunities to sit back and relax, or take a stroll along the beach.  There is plenty of time to play, dance, hike, socialize with like-minded friends, meditate, and journal.  Listen, learn, and experience soul growth lessons and practices with some of the most highly acclaimed teachers in the country.  For many of us, it is an annual retreat and reunion with our A.R.E. family that we look forward to each year!

Special Events

A.R.E. Summer Seabeck wouldn't be the same without the joy and laughter that we share! In addition to presentations by our compelling speakers, meditations, morning Cayce exercises, dream study groups, and other workshops to choose from we also schedule some special events each year designed to make the event fun.

"Let everyone whom you meet be happier for having met you, for having spoken to you. This you can do by spreading joy." 

(Edgar Cayce 3416-1)

"Come as you Were" Soiree!

Friday begins with our "Come as You Were" Soiree!  Experience a past life by bringing a costume to wear to dinner - or not.  It's light-hearted fun for all!


Talent Show

Saturday night you won't want to miss our talented and sometimes hilarious Seabeck family join together for our annual Talent Show! Bring an instrument, bring a comedy act, prepare a song to sing, or just come and enjoy.  It is so much fun that you will be amazed!

Current Seabeck COVID Protocol

Seabeck Conference Center no longer requires guests or staff to wear masks indoors.  People are welcome to continue to wear masks if they are more comfortable doing so.  Currently, all groups at Seabeck are required to confirm every member of their group, 2 years of age or older, has proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival.  We will be asking for this proof when you check-in for the event.  Seabeck Conference Center has a fully vaccinated workforce. We will update this information if policies changes.

About Seabeck

About Seabeck Conference Center

The Seabeck Conference Center is located on 90 beautiful acres on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. The grounds are reminiscent of a small village, complete with walkways that meander past manicured lawns, fruit orchards, and wooded trails. Steeped in history and beauty, it's easy to find yourself transported back to a simpler time from it’s 19th century history, including an old schoolhouse, the original inn and rustic turn-of-the century residences hovering over Hood Canal.


Year round recreational activities include access to the beautiful hiking trails and waterfront.  Summer recreational activities right on the grounds are no charge and include a private lagoon with paddle boats, the swim beach, the boat dock, tennis courts in the woods, horseshoes, ping-pong, volleyball, tetherball, foos ball, basketball, a tree house, the children’s playground and fire circle. With its sweeping views of the waters of Hood Canal and the Olympic Mountains, the Seabeck Conference Center will immerse you in its natural forests and rolling lawns to delight your senses, enliven your mind, harmonize your vibrations, and  rejuvenate your soul.

Delicious Family Style meals are always included in your stay. All meals are prepared on-site and served in the 19th century style dining room. Three full meals a day may be prepared optionally as vegetarian, vegan, non-dairy, and gluten free if preferred.

In addition, guests are always invited to enjoy the unlimited breakfast bar, lunch and dinner salad bars, and a variety of beverage choices.  Friday night is always our Salmon Bake on the beach!
