Your health is of the utmost concern to us.

With each meal we prepare we strive to accommodate any food allergies you may identify.

When you register your group for a stay with us you will be asked to provide information on any dietary restrictions which your participants may have.

Please be as specific as possible and our kitchen staff will work hard to meet your needs.

Accommodations can be made either for individual participants or for the group as a whole. Knowing your specific allergy concerns or food restrictions in advance is an important tool for our kitchen staff to ensure that your stay with us is both healthy and satisfying.


5 for the price of 4

We are always eager to encourage
new families to share in the
“Sorrento Experience”.

Our popular “5 for the price of 4” program allows parishes to partner
with us. For every four families
or individuals from a parish
attending one of our programs,
a fifth family who is
new to Sorrento Centre
is eligible to receive a credit
of up to $600.

This credit is used towards program fees and cannot be combined with the newcomers’ discount (see below).

Call us or speak to your parish contact for more details. Parish registration is required by May 31, 2018

During The Five Weeks of Summer
we have a special promotion
for newcomers. If you have
never been to Sorrento Centre before and you are registering for a course,
you automatically qualify for
a discount equivalent to the R&R fee
for that week: a value of $175 per adult.

If you are registering for R&R,
you qualify for a discount of $100.

(These discounts cannot
be combined with the
“5 for the price of 4”
parish savings program.)

Meals at Sorrento Centre
  • Meals are served at the Richardson Lodge Dining Room and the adjacent outdoor picnic 4tables.
  • We are committed to making your dining experience relaxing, healthy, and flavourful.
  • We strive to provide nutritionally sound, ethically sourced meals prepared with pride from whole ingredients.

Since 2010 we have engaged in an ambitious project with our eight-acre Sorrento Farm located 2 km from the Centre. Throughout the growing season the farm provides our kitchen with a wide variety of produce, grown without invasive methods or the use of pesticides.

You can expect to find Sorrento Farm produce at all meals throughout the summer season, ranging from the lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers in your salads to the seasonal vegetables (carrots, peppers, eggplant, onions, celery, and more) used as ingredients in most of our meals.

In addition, our herb garden at the farm provides much of the seasoning to our dishes, allowing you to “taste Sorrento” in every bite!

Don’t forget that your tuition fee includes all snacks and also one evening meal: our Summer Community Dinner. This is held on Friday evening during each week of The Five Weeks of Summer Programming.

For young and old, each of the five weeks wraps up with a Closing Eucharist service, followed by a Summer Community Dinner and capped off with a dance in Kekuli. Everyone on site is welcomed to these closing celebrations. Come as you are, or dress up if you wish.
