Lodging is available in the Main Lodges. Each lodge includes six furnished bedrooms with two twin beds, spacious living room, fireplace, two private bathrooms with showers and all linens, towels and housekeeping services.

You may also room “off-campus”, which includes reserve-able sites in the campground at Silver Falls State Park, or at various hotels including the Oregon Garden or in the town of Sublimity or Stayton. Both are within a 15 minute drive of the conference center. Or you may stay in Salem, which is about a 30 minute drive.

Six meals are included in the conference registration fee. Meals include dinner on Wednesday night, April 2, breakfast/lunch/dinner, on Thursday, April 3 and breakfast/lunch on Friday, April 4. Vegetarian option is available. We hope you can arrive Wednesday and join us for dinner and campfire. Hear stories from our own “Nurse MacGyver”, Ramona Trebilcock and share some of your own.

Fees: $190.00/person - Lodge / double occupancy $125.00/person - “off campus”


We are working on finalizing some of our speakers but here are some of the topics that will be covered:
Non-violent communication skills;
Psychosocial needs of student with diabetes, hemophilia, LGBQT, and eating disorders;
How to identify students with violent or suicidal tendencies early;
YogaCalm for us and our students;
Immunization Medical Exempt update – what it means for us and parents;
and more!


The goal of this conference is to provide the school nurse with the tools they will need to help meet the psychosocial needs of students with various medical conditions and to learn ways to improve communication and relaxation skills. The conference planning committee chose this location because of its beauty and our recognized need to reconnect with nature and each other.

You will have the opportunity to share some of your knowledge and skills with the group. We hope you will take this opportunity to recharge with us!
