In-Person Retreats

The COVID-19 pandemic was good in one way–it forced us to create new and more types of programming other than in-person multi-family retreats. We instinctively pivoted to online support programming, family grants, and individual family trips. For more info on what we did in 2020 to adapt, Click Here.

These joy-filled retreats offer an opportunity for families to connect with each other about their shared experience with childhood cancer. A myriad of therapeutic activities are offered for all ages. More info coming soon.

Open to Healing Bereavement Retreat

Rett’s Roost Heartquarters – Ogunquit, ME
SEPT 23-26, 2021

***PENDING*** Our hope is to host one three-day retreat for bereaved families in Ogunquit this summer. Parents will be able to talk about grieving their child that died of cancer with others that understand, while children participate in more playful therapeutic activities. Think of it as a weekend-long support group interspersed with engaging, inspiring activities and personal connections to lift your spirits and lighten your hearts. More info coming soon.
