Weekend retreats are free of charge to those who are attending for the first time.
Our Three Day Retreat Weekends offer a full schedule of activities that includes basic fly fishing instruction, medical education and groups that provide opportunities for support and connection with other women surviving cancer.
Retreats begin on Friday afternoon and conclude on Sunday after lunch. The schedule includes group activities and fly fishing instruction. 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.
One Day Retreats are designed for women who want to attend but can’t get away for an entire weekend.
While some of the Casting Carolinas retreats are for a mixed group of women who are cancer survivors, others are designed for specific groups of survivors.
