Essentia Health Retreats

We Can Weekend

This family retreat happens once a year in the fall. We Can Weekend brings cancer patients and their whole families to camp, where adults can relax and find needed support among other families dealing with similar emotional, physical and financial challenges. Brothers and sisters get to participate in the same fun-filled activities since every family member is considered a camper during We Can Weekend.

Families participate in assorted recreational indoor and outdoor activities, discussion groups, interactive games, creative workshops, team building exercises and more! These activities are designed to have a positive outcome that transforms your coping skills, improves communication between your family and strengthens the bonds between family and each family member. This therapeutic retreat will also provide your family with resources and an opportunity to network with other families.
