Walter Guzman Retreat Center
The Walter Guzman Healing Retreat Center
currently serves as a base for healing and a cultural connection for children, youth, adults, and other non-profit organizations. With a central focus around traditional Native American ceremony visitors are immediately greeted by nature, tipis, tree houses, and a sweat lodge. The Walter Guzman Retreat Center is a peaceful place perfect for promoting self-confidence, awareness, sense of purpose as well as many other positive mental, physical and spiritual qualities for youth.
