About TAPS Retreats
TAPS Retreats are 3-4 day adventures in locations across the nation. TAPS Retreats are designed to create a strong sense of community and peer support among survivors by providing challenging group activities as well as multiple opportunities for conversation. Past retreat activities have included sky diving, zip lining, surfing, downhill skiing, horseback riding and running a marathon! Retreats push participants out of their comfort zone to demonstrate the strength they possess even after unspeakable tragedy.
