The Merritt Center and Lodge: A Retreat Center
was founded in 1987 by Betty
Merritt and is dedicated to individual and group renewal and
empowerment. Retreat programs are held in a charming rustic lodge
tucked away in the rural community of Payson, Arizona; endowed with
a rugged inheritance of mountains and trees (elevation 5,000 feet):
healthy meals, hiking, hammocks, hot tub, and clean mountain air.
Therapeutic body work and forest walks are specialties of the Lodge.
Located 90 miles north of Phoenix, a beautiful 1 1/2 hour drive
from Sky Harbor airport through spectacular desert mountain terrain
to one of the largest stands of Ponderosa pine in the world. All
programs are limited to fewer than 30 participants; double/single
occupancy rooms; private and shared baths.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education
in renewal and empowerment via classes, workshops and experiential
programs in a climate conducive to personal and organizational
growth. Ideal setting for persons and organizations in transition.
