Retreats

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all!" - Helen Keller

A TOPS retreat is a few calendar squares of time that you reserve just for you. It’s a time to get away, relax, learn, have fun, and fire up your weight-loss motivation—all in the supportive company of other TOPS/KOPS members. It’s unique. It’s a treat. And we think you deserve it.

How to Join a Retreat

Retreats are only open to members (age 18 or older), and joining is easy! You can join online for just $32 US/$36* Canada and enjoy a full year of membership benefits. Call or email one of our retreat registrars listed below for assistance. They're happy to help.

For more information on retreats or to get on a waiting list for a retreat that is full, please contact:

U.S. Retreat Registrar Laurie Blada at lblada@tops.org
Canadian Retreat Registrar Pat Hanson at mchanson@telus.net

Please be sure to let us know which retreat location(s) and date(s) interest you.
