Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats

Providing empowerment, sisterhood, and adventure to women of all ages and stages of Breast Cancer.

At Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats, women living after breast cancer move from surviving to thriving. We use challenge-by-choice activities and expressive/healing arts to create a supportive, inclusive, invigorating environment. Participants gain confidence, make new friends, find healing in the outdoors, and discover their own strengths in the recovery process.


“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.”
-- Rose

Join us for a virtual 25th Adventure Weekend Anniversary "Celebration" on December 30, 2020
2020 was the year of "Celebrating 25 years of Adventure Weekend"
The COVID-19 pandemic quickly turned our year of celebration into cancellations of all our 2020 Retreats as well as our 25th Anniversary "Celebration" event. We "pivoted" to virtual and hybrid "Adventure Challenges" through September and October to bring support, connection, and hope to our breast sisters.
Come join us as we conclude our 25th Adventure Weekend Anniversary with a virtual "Celebration" honoring the founders, facilitators, and alumnae of Adventure Weekend and the Betty J. Breast Cancer Retreats.
  • Celebrate and "share the story" of 25 years of adventure retreats with our alumnae, founders and friends
  • Grand Prize drawing for the winner of a free 2021 BJB Retreat of your choice
  • Give Cheers to our Adventure Women

Thank You for Participating

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 25th Anniversary “Adventure Challenges” in honor of the founders of Adventure Weekend and the Betty J. Borry Breast Cancer Retreats.
While we were unable to meet this year at retreats, we “pivoted" to hybrid and virtual events to bring support, connection, and hope to our BJB breast sisters living after breast cancer. Thanks to your generous donations and fundraising events, we raised some funds to sustain BJB Breast Cancer Retreats through this challenging year.
Our 25th Adventure Weekend Anniversary will conclude with a virtual “Celebration" featuring our founders, AWE/BJB alumnae, Retreats/Fundraisers through the years and the Grand Price Drawing - watch your email for details!
