Broom Tree Retreat & Conference Center and Youth & Family Camp are a ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Broom Tree is a non-profit organization that is supported in large part by the donations of people who attend retreats as well as those who give to memorialize a family member or who desire to further our mission to provide facilities, resources, and programs that aid all individuals, youth, and families of faith in spiritual renewal and faith development.

There are many ways you can participate with us in building a place where people of faith can come to get away from the constant demands of everyday life and experience a place of recollection.   You can help carry on the ministry of Broom Tree while leaving a legacy for your family and others.  Contact the Catholic Community Foundation for Eastern South Dakota at 888-246-3386 to discuss how your Estate Planning can help serve the mission of Broom Tree Retreat and Conference Center and Broom Tree Youth and Family Camp for generations to come.
