What we're about
ECRS is a warm and welcoming community for folks of all ages. Our events take place in beautiful and informal country settings within a few hours of New York City and Philadelphia. Our programs offer an ever-changing menu of optional daily classes, such as games, dance, drama/improv, crafts, music, personal development, and more, led by our skilled and caring members. Nightly we make our own merriment when we all gather for an evening program, full of activities such as folk and line dancing, group singing, cooperative games, and friendly conversation over a light snack. A typical year includes a 5-day event at a retreat center in NY State in late December, a weekend at a summer camp in Bucks County PA in early June, and a weekend in Rockland County NY, Lancaster County PA, or the Poconos in the spring or fall.
We are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, and our events emphasize enjoyment, creativity, community and personal growth. Our attendees include families, singles and couples, elders and children and every age in between, all interacting in a playful, relaxing, and supportive environment. Our participants are largely concentrated in the greater NY, Philadelphia, and DC areas, but many others travel from Massachusetts, North Carolina, Toronto, and elsewhere to join us at one or more events each year.
