Hosted annually by the Central Section the last weekend of August at Camp Lake Sequoia, located just 2 miles before the entrance of Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park in Central California’s beautiful Sierra Nevada region; the Sierra Retreat offers a weekend getaway for APA members, their families and guests, to experience cherished time in the outdoors enjoying hiking, fishing, kayaking, swimming, campfires and relaxation in a natural setting.  On Saturday morning, a professional development session (discussing a planning topic of interest) is presented, which allows for AICP credits.  All meals and lodging are included with registration.  We would love to see you at the Lake!
