2024 Sunrise Weekend Retreat Family Application

Our Sunrise Weekend Retreat is designed to serve families that have lost a child due to cancer.

Amazing volunteer families are excited to welcome and serve you, supervising activities for kids. Parents will connect in a small group environment that provides them a safe place to share, connect, and heal from the pain of losing their loved one. Parents and kids alike will enjoy activities and lodging at the Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa, all provided at no cost to families.

Program Eligibility:

  • Families must have lost a child to cancer within the past 1 - 5 years.

  • Immediate family members living at home may attend a retreat (limited to 2 adults and siblings under the age of 21). Mom and dad must attend the retreat unless you are a single parent. Single parents are welcome to bring a support person who has walked through their cancer journey with them.

  • Retreats fill on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to first-time families.

  • Families are responsible for travel to and from retreat. All costs associated with food, and planned retreat activities while at the retreat are covered by Lighthouse Family Retreat.
