The Joshua Tree Retreat Center (JTRC) is easily reachable via two major international airports.

  • The Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) is 50 minutes from JTRC via CA-62 East.
  • The Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is approximately 2 hours and 28 minutes from the JTRC. If you are driving from Los Angeles, take the 10 Freeway East for approximately 100 miles to Exit 117 to CA 62 East (29 Palms Highway) for approximately 25 miles. JTRC will be on your left.

When you see the "Welcome to Joshua Tree" sign, you are seconds away. There is a large rust-colored metal sculpture and a blue sign at the entrance on your left. If you reach downtown Joshua Tree, you have gone too far.

We are exploring times and costs for shuttle transportation from Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday, June 22. Return transportation would be Saturday, June 29. Please check back closer to the conference for reservation information.

If you are arriving at Palm Springs International Airport, the AM/PM shuttle service provides transportation to the Joshua Tree Retreat Center for as low as $35 (USD) per person.  Visit to make reservations.
