Calcagnini Contemplative Center

The Calcagnini Contemplative Center (CCC), Georgetown University’s retreat center, is situated in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The CCC provides a welcoming space for overnight and weekend retreats, and is also ideal for one-day retreats and administrative meetings.  Located on 55-acres of picturesque grounds in Bluemont, VA and overlooking the Shenandoah Valley, the contemplative center is less than 75 minutes from Georgetown University. The contemplative center was made possible through the generosity of Arthur Calcagnini (C’54) and his wife, Nancy, longtime supporters of Georgetown University’s  ESCAPE First-Year Experience.
