The Sorrento Centre is located on the unceded traditional lands of the Secwépemc Nation (pronounced suh-Wep-muhc). Before contact with Europeans, the Secwépemc peoples were gathered in more than 30 self-governing bands. Today, there are 17 bands remaining. The Secwépemc people sought to live in harmony with the world – moving from place to place over the seasons to harvest animals and other food, including the bountiful salmon. The Secwepemc maintained a spiritual and practical respect for land, water, air, animals, plants, and all things needed for their survival – maintaining cultural and other practices that offer great wisdom and guidance in the 21st century.
A year-round natural setting on the shores of the beautiful Shuswap Lake, B.C. - a place of inspiration, gathering, and growth - Sorrento offers year round programs and workshops, youth leadership training, public lectures and performances as well hosting events at our excellent conference facility.
In addition to meeting and seminar rooms, we have a book store, and outdoor labyrinth, a covered amphitheatre, a private beach on Shuswap Lake, and beautiful trails and gardens.
We are an accessible facility, and child-friendly.
The kitchen staff specialize in fine homestyle cooking - sourcing some produce from the Centre's own farm! Sorrento offers affordable cost-effective accommodation from a selection of lodges, apartments, cabanas, and tenting and trailer campsites.
With all this to offer, Sorrento Centre meets the conference, retreat, family reunion, seminar and meeting needs of businesses, government and social agencies, special interest groups and service clubs, musicians, schools, youth programs and churches.
You can also arrange a self directed retreat at the centre or just have a stop on your way through.
Sorrento is located 70 km east of Kamloops and 32 km west of Salmon Arm, on the Trans-Canada Highway.
