We’re less than a month away from the ACA Oregon Fall Retreat—November 16-19 at Twin Rocks Friends Camp and Conference Center in Rockaway Beach, OR.

Discover Your True Self is the retreat theme, and you’ll have many opportunities to enhance that discovery (and your recovery):

  • Family Groups: We form small groups of six to eight people that meet once a day for a small ACA meeting (regular 12-Step format) to allow for safe expression of feelings that come up during the retreat.
  • Fellowship Activities: There are lots of opportunities to connect with others through activities such as games, art, sports, and a variety show!
  • Workshops: Fellow ACA members offer service by sharing their experience and leading workshops to explore topics such as healthy boundaries, step work, affirmations, and inner child work.
  • Reflection/personal time: Twin Rocks Friends Camp and Conference Center is located on the beautiful Oregon coast, just a block from the beach. The camp is situated on 120 wooded acres, including mountain trails. You can hike, explore, meditate, journal…all activities are optional! You choose what feels right for you.

If you haven’t already, reserve your spot now.

Beds are still available in Hadley Hall, and one private room is available at Pacific Woods Lodge. Please contact acaportlandretreat@gmail.com now to check on availability.

Registration Deadline: Thursday, November 2, or when event capacity (75 people) is reached, whichever comes first.
