Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats and Adventure Weekend

Connect with other women who share the same journey.
The Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats and Adventure Weekend provide adventure-based opportunities for women living after breast cancer. Participants challenge themselves physically, emotionally and spiritually finding understanding and support. They have fun, amazed by the new things they learn, the boundaries they push through.  While many types of support groups exist, adventure-based experiences in a retreat environment have proved to be exceptional in empowering women to discover their own strengths in the recovery process. Together, women living after breast cancer can move from surviving to thriving.
We use challenge by choice activities such as ropes courses, kayaking, snowshoeing, hiking, expressive and healing arts to create a supportive, inclusive, invigorating environment. The women gain confidence, make new friends and discover their own place of sanctuary in the outdoors.


“When I arrived, it was about me
and all my loss and anger.
When I left it was about us.
I came away
feeling stronger.
The women
made me strong.”

Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization.
Our mission is to establish and maintain a support group for women of all ages and stages of breast cancer,
enhancing their quality of life through adventure-based opportunities.
