SPECIAL PROMOTION DISCOUNT

During the Five Weeks of Summer we have a special promotion for newcomers. If you have never been to Sorrento Centre before, you automatically qualify for a discount equivalent to the R&R fee for that week, a value of $165 per adult.

(This discount cannot be mixed with the 5 for the price of 4 parish savings program.)


5 for the price of 4
SPECIAL SAVINGS FOR PARISHES

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 church parish attending one of our programs, a fifth family that 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 mixed with the newcomers’ discount.

Call us or speak to your parish contact for more details. Parish registration is required by May 31st, 2017. View/download the application form here »
