What is the Stones Family Gathering?
It's what we make of it. A gathering of Tribe to raise stones.
Five days of togetherness and Ceremony ending with new stones raised up to honor the community that created them.
In 2020 we met in an all-virtual format and raised almost 100 stones in a stone circle that spans 3 continents.
In 2022 we successfully raised 2 additional stones on the hill in Flintstone, MD. The youth also re-homed the seed stones nearby.
In 2023 we began a circle on new land by raising another Trilithon at Buffalo Gap Retreat in Capon Bridge, WV.
And in 2024, we will return to Buffalo Gap and continue the work we began last year!

About the Venue:
Buffalo Gap Retreat is nestled in the foothills of the Potomac Highlands just outside of the Shenandoah Valley. It is a short 2 hours from Washington or Baltimore and a bit more from Pittsburgh. Less than 10 minutes to the charming riverfront town of Capon Bridge and only 35 minutes to Winchester, Buffalo Gap provides a retreat with forest, mountains, creeks, streams, waterfalls, ponds & nature in all its magnificence.
Buffalo Gap Retreat sits in the valley (gap) between two large mountains - Sandy Ridge and Slane's Knob. As a result of being in the gap, the property is teaming with spring fed creeks and streams which form both their upper pond and sandy bottom lake.
Join us in the scenic hillsides of West Virginia where another Trilithon will be raised! We have rented the entire Creekside Campsites side and a few cabins but will be sharing the rest of the campground with other guests. Join us for ceremony at The Island, take a dip in the spring-fed lake, journey over to the Lakeview Café for a snack or meal, and take up the ropes and rollers with your family of choice as a new foundation is laid for the SCC community. Event Planning team members are needed. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested!
