Lighthouse Family Retreat serves families living through childhood cancer by creating environments on seaside retreats where they can rest, restore relationships, experience joy and find hope in God.
Childhood cancer impacts everyone in the family. Understandably, the child with cancer most often becomes the focus of concern, often leaving the siblings feeling lonely, insecure and left out. Lighthouse offers special attention for every member of the family – moms, dads, siblings, and the child with cancer.

Our program offers fun, family-centered activities to help them “feel like a family” again. For children, time spent playing in a carefree environment is essential. For parents a daily group meeting, Common Ground, provides a safe place to share with others living through similar life challenges.
Highlights of a Lighthouse Family Retreat experience include families spending time together, moms and dads getting away for a special date night, kids having a blast at an UNbirthday party, incredible beach and pool games that everyone participates in, a Hollywood night, a dance party under the stars and a talent show that tops all talent shows.
In 2016, Lighthouse utilized over 1,200 family partners to serve 204 families living through childhood cancer. Family partners serve meals, wash laundry, and provide a loving environment for these families to enjoy a fun family vacation.
