Young Adults Grief Retreat

A weekend retreat for young adults who are grieving

After campers graduate high school, we provide an annual weekend retreat to help them embrace the triumphs and challenges of young adulthood, while developing lasting friendships, leadership skills, and coping strategies for the next stages of their grief and lives. Young adults are a commonly underserved population, expected to act and cope as adults, but still transitioning through challenging developmental years and milestones. The Young Adults Grief Retreat allows them to bridge the gap from childhood to adulthood with the support they need.

**We are not accepting applications for 2021. We will update this page when the next retreat is planned.**
