2020 Young Adults Retreat will be held August 2 -5, 2020!
This event is open to children, stepchildren, and siblings, ages 18-25, whose firefighter has been honored or is approved to be honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial. The transition from childhood to adulthood is challenging on its own., Leaving home, going to college, entering the workforce, or getting married can intensify the feelings of grief. The Young Adults Retreat provides a safe place where young adults can connect with peers and find support with those who truly understand. This event will combine challenging outdoor experiences, facilitated conversation and discussion, and activities designed to help understand the complex emotions that make up grief and loss and promote useful coping skills. The emphasis is on sharing stories, creating new experiences, and connecting with others.
Each day will include an outdoor outing, as well as time in groups facilitated by experienced grief professionals and free time to explore nature and make connections with other retreat participants.
