Why do we run retreats?

Casting for Recovery retreats are based on the principles that the natural world is a healing force and that breast cancer survivors deserve one weekend — free of charge and free of the stresses from medical treatment, home, or workplace - to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings within an intimate, safe, and nurturing structure. 

In addition to the therapeutic benefits of the countryside and the instruction of some of the most highly experienced fly casting experts in the country, participants are also supported by counsellors as well as highly qualified medical staff. Fly fishing, medical and counselling staff all abide by Casting for Recovery's motto: it's all about you, the participant.
