  • Dealing with change
  • Living a sober life within the LGBTQ community
  • Mental well being

Our History
The Caron LGBTQ Retreat began in the 1980s as a safe, supportive place for those with HIB/AIDS and in recovery to come together. Over the years, the retreats have expanded to be inclusive of all in the LGBTQ community, regardless if they are impacted by HIV/AIDS. Our core group of faithful participants has grown into a special extended family and welcome you to join our family. A few times a year, we return to Caron to share feelings, laughter, and life struggles; mourn losses; and unconditionally welcome newcomers.

Upcoming weekends:

$100 per person, which includes lodging for two nights plus meals.
