From Reel Recovery:
Though only a few days in duration, a Reel Recovery retreat can be a life-changing event for men living with cancer. The program blends outdoor activity with directed conversations to create a unique environment conducive to relaxed, open interactions.
Retreats are offered at no cost to the participants and are led by professional psychosocial facilitators and expert fly-fishing instructors. A maximum of fourteen men are invited to participate, to ensure the quality of the instruction and to create a powerful small-group dynamic.
The program is designed to be both experiential and reflective, to develop group camaraderie as well as individual skills, and to build bonds of friendship that provide a reservoir of personal hope.
Reel Recovery provides all meals, lodging and fly-fishing equipment, and no previous fishing experience is required.
