Retreats

Cancer Support Community offers retreats to Montanans impacted by cancer. In addition to the fun and special activities at each retreat, there is also programming based on CSC’s 5 pillars that support the mission “to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.”

We encourage all interested participants to apply, however some retreat facilities are not able to accommodate all applicants. Priority will be given to first-time attendees, and individual participant need. Applications and dates will be updated as they become available.

Testimonials


“Mending in the Mountains was a life-changing event for me. It gave me an opportunity to give back as much support to others as I had received. The event was inspiring, fun, and a wonderful opportunity to share and be accepted and loved for who I am, whether I have had cancer or not. The many educational programs taught me tools I could use for survival in dealing with my cancer diagnosis.”
