Lighthouse Family Retreat - June 11-17, 2023 - DESTIN, FLORIDA (Tops’l Resort)


Trip Summary:  What does it look like to serve with Lighthouse: Individuals and families with children age 4 and older will experience a week of quality time together serving families living through childhood cancer on a Lighthouse Family Retreat. 

This service trip will be a memory-maker and a transformational experience for the parents and children you serve, as well as for you and your own family. The week will be full of extravagant service … serving meals, leading fun children’s activities, setting up for theme nights, and creating environments where cancer families can get away to rest, restore relationships, experience joy, and find hope in God! Volunteers will be paired with a family living through childhood cancer to help serve them throughout the week with things like preparing and decorating condos, doing their laundry and dishes, playing games, and most of all, strengthening relationships that will last a lifetime.  Volunteers play a critical role in creating a retreat experience that provides joy and hope while strengthening families.  


Cost: Families living through childhood cancer attend a retreat at no cost. For that reason, we ask volunteers to raise funds to help cover their costs. There is a minimum cost to attend a retreat based on the makeup of each family. To calculate your family’s minimum fundraising cost please review the following minimums based on age: $1500 per adult, $500 per child age 17 and under.
