Imagine living in the mountains for a weekend. Imagine a getaway for black people with big dreams. Imagine yourself there.

Your journey begins as soon as you travel up the sprawling San Bernardino National Forest, and pull up to Pali Retreat Center. We'll spend the weekend together, on the camp grounds, in the cabins bunk-bed style, and eat the seriously delicious food right from Pali's executive chef, all just steps away from your bed.
