Weekend retreats are free of charge to all women living life after cancer who are attending for the first time.
Our Three Day Retreat Weekends offer a full schedule of activities that includes basic fly fishing instruction, health and wellness education and F.L.O.W. groups that provide skills for living life after cancer diagnosis and treatment and opportunities for support and connection with other women surviving cancer.
Retreats begin on Friday afternoon and conclude on Sunday after lunch. Most women who attend have never held a fly rod… and many have never fished. Fly fishing instruction is simple and fun!!
Fly fishing instructors and river guides are always present to teach and assist. All meals are included and volunteer staff are onsite for the entire weekend. While the retreat schedule has a variety of activities, we encourage women to participate at their own level.
There is plenty of free time built into the schedule. All participants and volunteers will receive a detailed retreat schedule prior to the weekend.
All “graduates” of Casting Carolinas retreats are welcomed into our Alumnae Program that offers on-going opportunities for connection and support!
This amazing short documentary by UNC CH Film Student Sophie Hughett describes Casting Carolinas F.L.O.W. retreats beautifully!
