CFRI's Annual Teen and Adult Retreat provides a safe and welcoming environment aimed at enhancing positive coping skills, social support and education for people who share common experiences with CF. Adults and teens 15 years and older with cystic fibrosis, as well as their family members, friends, and health care providers can register.
Activities promoting health include daily exercise, arts and crafts, rap sessions, and educational workshops with guest speakers. Fun group-bonding activities include a talent show, games, and getting to know each other. All people with CF are required to comply with cross-infection behavioral precautions. Participants with CF must obtain a sputum culture before the start of the Retreat.

For the CF Journey
I have been attending CFRI's camps and retreats for over 15 years. CFRI is one of the only organizations in the country that values the benefits of people with CF gathering together to support each other. Their strict protocols for hygiene and safety regarding cross-infection make this possible.
At Retreat we learn about new treatments, coping skills, and medical aspects of our illness. We enjoy delicious and nutritious meals, exercise activities, and creative art experiences. Most importantly, we explore how CF affects our lives, relationships, and emotional development. At Retreat, I laugh more than any other time during the year, but can also grieve and remember those friends with CF whom I have lost.
I leave Retreat feeling like I have charged my batteries to face the world with hope and confidence. The CFRI community at Retreat are like family. I am extremely grateful to CFRI for sponsoring this event.
