Pearlstone Center, Reisterstown, MD

The SPARK Experience

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Blue Mountain Retreat Center is uniquely situated in a small rural community in the hills behind historic Harper’s Ferry, MD. It is the Greater Washington community’s first environmentally-friendly and health-conscious venue.

Blue Mountain is so convenient to both Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD – just about one hour driving time – yet after you arrive and settle in, you feel like you have been transported to the midst of a forest. The center strives to provide the most serene setting for your experience, focusing you on our connection with nature. Secluded yet easy to get to. Expect healthful organic food, quiet but efficient staff support, and low-key notices of how your stay is environmentally friendly. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and happy knowing you have contributed to keeping our planet green.


100 percent of all donations go to support our SPARK scholarship program, which makes it possible for deserving teachers, social workers, and other change agents to attend one of our SPARK experiences and, in turn, transform the lives of the youth they serve daily.
