Shilo Farm Eco Retreat – Eliot, ME

Join us to welcome fall. Connect and heal with other families that have a child recovering from cancer.

We are so grateful to be heading back to Shilo Farm to hold a nature retreat for families with kids transitioning off of cancer treatment from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon.

We understand that when a child is diagnosed with cancer, the burden befalls the entire family. Parents, siblings, pets, and loved ones experience a great deal of stress, sadness, and pain. The seemingly endless treatments, surgeries and scans can leave the patient and family feeling anxious, vulnerable, even defeated. But we also know that the fight against cancer can be an empowering one, especially for survivors. At Rett’s Roost, we hope to create a joyful, fearless, empathetic space for families to relax, renew, and lament after months or years in a hospital environment. We focus on mindful, positive living through healthy bodies, minds, and spirits.

Each family will have their own beautifully-decorated and unique room and personal bathroom in the farmhouse or the barn. Rett’s Roost staff will be providing delicious, healthy meals. We will have full days of optional activities to connect with others and to heal within, such as art, music, and yoga therapy, games, massages, family portrait sessions, and nature hunts. Note that there are many adorable animals around, and if you have allergies, you may be affected.
