The Adult Retreat

Home » Project » The Adult Retreat

The Retreat provides a survivor-driven program allowing the opportunity for approximately 20 adult burn survivors to learn about their healing process and their journey as a burn survivor.

The Retreat is for adult burn survivors 21+ and is an intensive weekend, developed by burn survivors for burn survivors, and includes workshops, support groups and promotes healing, self-discovery and socialization.

The Retreat Adult Burn Camp provides:

  • A safe place for burn-injured adult to get away from the stares and unwanted attention associated with being burned;
  • A loving and supportive family atmosphere that helps soothe the potentially devastating emotional and physical pain a burn injury;
  • An opportunity to meet others who have been through a similar experience and to be part of new and challenging activities together; and

A program that ensures that adult burn survivors have a great time!

“I am so glad that AARBF now offers a retreat for all of the survivors that end up aging out of Champ Camp. It helps to make new friends and keep in touch with old friends. I had a great weekend creating new memories,” —Angel C., Age 26

The registration for the 2021 The Retreat has closed. Please watch for announcements for The Retreat returning in February 2022!
