Stony Point Center is a 32-acre retreat facility located about 30 miles NW of NYC in the Hudson Valley. We believe in the possibilities of change and that the arc of history is indeed bending toward justice. Groups come here to reflect, recharge and reconnect; to plan, execute and train; to create, commune and collaborate. Stony Point Center is owned by the Presbyterian Church (USA) and is committed to being an open, safe space for all.

Our accommodations hold up to roughly 150 people at double occupancy in varied, unique buildings–from a series of mid-century modern one floor lodges to a 19th century 3-story Victorian mansion. Guest groups at Stony Point Center get centered in our Meditation Space, on walks through the labyrinth, or through our 5-acres of woods. 

Stony Point Center’s meeting spaces seat anywhere from 12 people to 200: From conference-style rooms to an acoustically excellent auditorium to living room and seminar-style spots, we have your group’s needs covered!

Our campus is just a few miles from the Hudson River and minutes away from many hikes in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks. These parks also include lakes for kayaking and canoeing, plus swimming during the summer months. We are also right by a creek and small waterfall just a few blocks away.

Stony Point Center attracts and happily hosts groups doing all sorts of good work for society at large and for the individuals attending, in particular. From social action groups to trauma healing for hospital workers to song-writers seeking inspiration and learning…and of course, religious groups seeking to deepen their faith(s).

We also partner with some excellent non-profits who rent some of our buildings and/or farm on this land: Proyecto Faro, Sweetwater Cultural Center, Fellowship of Reconciliation, the Center and Library for the Bible and Social Justice (CLBSJ) and the Penguin Rep Theatre.

It is Stony Point Center’s honor and privilege to take care of these lands, historically occupied by the Ramapough, an indigenous people of the Hudson Valley, who are part of the Munsee Delaware (Lenape Nation). 

Stony Point Center, as wholly-owned retreat space of the Presbyterian Church (USA), is committed to doing everything we can to dismantle structural racism, eliminate systemic poverty, and revitalize congregations. We also work on the intersectional priorities of climate change, gender and heteropatriarchy, and militarism. See the Matthew 25 Movement for more on what our forward-thinking denomination is doing in the world.

We welcome all with open arms, including those with and without a faith or faith background, any and all genders and orientations, races, ethnicities, nationalities…. Our campus has been the site of many beautiful experiments and is continually guided by the loving hand of our Creator.
