Stronger Together: The Dandelion Mama Camp

Center City, MN

Group of Women

*Event Is Full
A healing and community-building retreat


This retreat is for moms with addicted children (at any age or in any phase—including those actively using, in recovery or whom addiction has stolen away).

Let’s take full advantage of this healing landscape: a quiet waterfront beside the stretching firs, pines and rolling prairie—the perfect place to share our strength, warmth and wisdom with one another. You can plan to journal, reflect and share in groups, while we all look to listen, connect and come together as one: proud Dandelion Mamas.


Topics will include:

  • Finding moments of joy and serenity
  • Grieving what might have been
  • Tapping into our Dandelion Mama power
  • How we help and heal one another

To Register, Call 800-262-4882
