ACON Northern Rivers Gay Men Retreat

This year’s Retreat is planned for Friday 23 to Tuesday 27 June. As in previous years participants will arrive on Friday late afternoon and depart on the Tuesday morning after breakfast. This Retreat is a residential retreat over 4 nights for gay men living with HIV and their partners/carers.  It offers participants structured activities such as workshops, small group discussions, fun and exercise activities; as well as lots of ‘free’ time for relaxation, reading, games and informal chatting. It is full catered with wholesome and delicious meals (diverse dietary requirements can be catered for).   We hope to attract gay men from all over regional/rural NSW and SE Queensland. Support may be available to assist participants away from the Northern Rivers to attend the Retreat.   We will be developing the content of the Retreat over the next 2 months and registrations will open in May. If you’d like to forward this information to a friend living with HIV who might be interested in being informed about the Retreat,  We hope to see many gay men living with HIV from all over NSW and SE Qld at this year’s Retreat. If I can be of any assistance or if you require more information, please contact me on (02) 6622 1555 or nmckellar-stewart@acon.or.au
