We ask that survivors register for one retreat or expedition per 12 months. If you have previously attended a retreat or expedition in the past 12 months we're so excited that you want to come back; however, we ask that you wait to register 24 hours after registration has opened for this event to allow the opportunity for first-time retreat attendees to sign up.


If this is your first time connecting with TAPS, we welcome you to the TAPS family. We strive to create relationships with each survivor who reaches out to us. Before receiving your welcome email, you can expect to hear from a member of our Survivor Care Team, who will welcome you and answer any questions you may have about programs.

If you have any questions, please email retreats@taps.org or call 800-959-8277.

Event registration will be posted soon, please check back.
