Lake Tahoe, California


The Tahoe Siblings Retreat will be a space to face the fears and struggles that may be holding you back in your grief journey. Through physical activity and quiet moments of reflection, we’ll find strength to move toward hope and healing. Throughout the weekend, we’ll connect with each other through activities and experience the support that comes from shared loss.



his retreat is rated as a challenging adventure. These are our most physically demanding retreats. Activities will challenge you and may involve heavy physical exertion and demanding environments.

During the retreat, we will spend a lot of time outdoors and activities will include a variety of winter sports. There will also be plenty of time to relax and connect with fellow survivors.


Thanks to the generosity of our donors and sponsors, TAPS will provide lodging, most meals and all activity costs. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide transportation to and from retreats.

Repeat Participants

We ask that survivors register for one Retreat or Expedition per 12 months. After 24 hours, those who have attended a Retreat or Expedition in the past 12 months may register if space is available. If you have previously attended a Retreat in this specific location, we're so excited that you want to come back; however, we ask that you also wait 24 hours prior to registration for this event to allow the opportunity for first-time Retreat attendees to register.
