Healing Retreats at Positive Living BC are an opportunity for people living with HIV from all walks of life, ages and cultures to come on our retreat. They provide a personally valuable, fun and relaxing opportunity to be with other PLHIV and know you are not alone. Participants stay at a contemporary yet rustic lodge at Loon Lake Camp in Maple Ridge – it’s an amazing natural setting.
At the camp, there are opportunities to swim, hike, canoe, attend a daily home group, enjoy abundant healthy meals, join new friends around the campfire at night, and much more! The Retreat occurs in August every year. In 2017, the retreat will be held on August 25 to 28.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-893-2200. Don’t miss out on a great experience!

Loon Lake Healing Retreats are for people living with HIV from all walks of life. You will meet new friends and learn more about yourself. It is free for all members of the Positive Living Society of BC. HIV does not discriminate or select any particular group of people. Participants at the retreat cover the spectrum of people who make up our Society. You will share the Retreat experience with a diverse group of men and women; gay and straight, younger, older, singles, couples and transgendered; people in recovery and people from different cultural and economic backgrounds and different neighbourhoods. The weekend consists of three nights & four days of shared accommodations with healthy meals in a modern lodge-‐style facility set on a beautiful mountain lake away from signs of urban life. We facilitate innovative peer-‐supported workshops and events, including: Community building, Small-‐group work, Rock climbing, Nature hikes, Creative projects, Swimming, Canoeing and Massage therapy.
