Retreat Yourself

Over four days, you'll talk about your experiences, relax, have fun, and share stories with your peers who “get it.” Retreats are flexible, and we work with each group to choose what their program is like.

What you can expect

Welcoming Environments

Everyone from everywhere in Canada dealing with every stage of every cancer is welcome to come to Retreat Yourself.

Small Group Discussions

The group will select the small group discussion topics on the first night. This part of the program will help you process parts of the cancer experience -- sometimes for the first time.

Information & Resources

You will be supported by a trained group of peer supporters and facilitators who will have your back and share their experiences and knowledge.


Retreat Yourself is open to young adults who were diagnosed with cancer before age 39 and are currently between 18-39.

Endless Support

"Though incredibly difficult to leave my daughter for the few days, I knew that I really needed to do this for me. Putting my oxygen mask on first, so that I can take care of her better, as it were. I've made some incredible friendships and have added many new members to my ever-growing family." - Retreat yourself participant
