You can apply ONLINE for a retreat for the service area you live in using the PINK link below. It’s easy and secure, and you will receive an e-mail confirmation that your application has been received. Please note that to be eligible to attend a retreat, you must be a breast cancer survivor (at any stage) and apply only to a retreat in your service region which you are qualified to attend (see below). While we appreciate that once attended, many would like to attend another retreat, at this time retreats may only be attended once so that we may serve as many women as possible. 

There is no cost to participants to attend, other than the expenses involved in traveling to and from the retreat location and the cost of a fishing license.

Participants for each of our scheduled 2014 retreats will be selected at random from all eligible applications received in our office by the retreat sign-up deadline. These are participant-only, all-women, 2 1/2-day retreats.

If you need to print out an application form, CLICK HERE. Please fill it out and fax it back to (802) 362-9182.

If you have any questions, you can contact us before the sign-up deadline or call us at 802-362-9181.

To apply:

  1. First, find the state you live in (chart below) to view the retreat that serves your area. You may only apply to this retreat (or retreats). Please remember, we do not offer retreats in all 50 states yet.
  2. You can then view the retreat dates, locations, and application deadlines for your state. In states that do not yet have a Casting for Recovery program, you might be directed to the retreat that covers your state.
