Mark your calendars now for Strength for the Journey 2024, August 15-18!

Registration is not yet open, but spread the word to help make this another year of sharing fun, laughs, tears and support. We hope to bring back bus transportation for 2024.

A four-day clean and sober retreat opportunity for individuals living with HIV /AIDS. Surrounded by the beauty of Suttle Lake, and supported by a loving and accepting community, participants will be invited to reflect, to rest, and to gain Strength for the Journey.


~sweet time with old and new friends and with the moon and trees ~ the love we share without borders ~ the kindness and peace I felt from the experiences here will live with me forever! ~ an opportunity to serve a larger community, to be in nature away from normal routine ~ telling my life story and getting to know new campers ~ all the smiling faces behind the masks ~ how much the camp means to me ~ it brings love and strength to an otherwise difficult disease

The cost for this retreat is $25-$165, a sliding scale based on what you can afford to pay.  

The Strength for the Journey Retreat is open to any person with an HIV/AIDS diagnosis.
