The Wellington Sunday fellowship is organising a weekend retreat on behalf of the Wellington SLAA Intergroup to gain strength, hope and new insight into our recovery, by sharing our recovery experiences. This is a perfect opportunity to think on our recovery in a beautiful native bush setting.


The camp will start with a light meal from 6pm Friday 29th November and conclude after lunch at 2pm Sunday 1st December 2019.

Traffic: Beware that the traffic out of town is busy on Friday nights.


We will stay at Riverslea Sanctuary on the Otaki River, which is a bit over one hour drive north of Wellington. The address is:

733 Otaki Gorge Road, RD2, Otaki 5582
Phone: 06 364 3388


The accommodation offers a variety of rooms sleeping 2, 3 up to 8 persons. There are no public phones at Riverslea so you will need a mobile phone for incoming and outgoing calls. Telecom mobiles have a little more coverage than Vodafone mobiles. Riverslea also offers WiFi and large screen TV connectivity (such as USB and HDMI for presentations).

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to bring a sleeping bag, and/or linen & bedding as these items are not provided.
