Special Events

Give your guests a weekend they’ll remember forever with a one-of-a-kind event at Bryn Mawr!

Whether you want a custom summer camp experience or a formal affair—or both in the same day!—we’ll help you bring your vision to life in a bespoke experience that everyone in attendance will be talking about for years to come.


Say “I do” in a destination wedding at your own private summer camp! With overnight accommodations for even the largest guest list, idyllic outdoor settings and white glove service, your wedding can be formal or rustic, traditional or unique… or all of the above!

Imagine the memories you’ll make when you bring your nearest and dearest together for a spirited summer camp weekend complete with campfires and Color War competition, or a relaxing resort-style getaway with opportunities for boating and tennis. Enjoy evening cocktails on the deck or a barbecue rehearsal dinner in our apple orchard.

Whether your dream wedding is footloose or fancy, steeped in tradition or totally offbeat, your Bryn Mawr team is ready to make it a reality, down to the smallest detail.


When it comes to milestones like Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, family reunions, corporate events and banquets, nobody does events like Bryn Mawr Mountain Retreat! From elegant evening affairs and polished professional gatherings to action-packed overnight get-togethers, our team is standing by to make your celebration one to remember.

Menu Planning

Whether it’s a sit-down dinner for 25 or a cocktail reception for 500, food is at the heart of any celebration. Our culinary staff will work with you to plan a menu that reflects your taste, your style, and the mood of your event. We’re able to accommodate most dietary restrictions and preferences, including food allergies, to ensure all your guests feel comfortable, welcome and well-fed.

Event Coordination

When you host a wedding or other special event at Bryn Mawr Mountain Retreat, you’re not just renting a venue. We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of service so you don’t have to sweat the details—you can simply relax and enjoy your private summer camp, resort or conference experience.

Our event planners will work with you to arrange the details of your visit so every element is in place well before you step onto our campus. We’ll work with your vendors of choice, and we’re also happy to provide a list of local vendors for everything from hair and makeup to the cake, DJ and more.

Your personal day-of coordinator will ensure every component of your event is executed according to plan. We’ll make your stay worry-free so you can focus on your guests, your family, and the most memorable day of your life.
