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.

Retreat Q&A

Q: Who may attend a TOPS retreat?
A: Retreats are only open to members (men and women 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.

Q: What happens at a retreat?
A:Look at a sample retreat schedule, meet our retreat directors and hear about the retreat experience firsthand from members on What Happens at a TOPS Retreat? 


Q: How do I sign up for a retreat or get on the waiting list?
A: You may request information about any retreat or ask to be put on the waiting list for a retreat that is full by contacting one of our Retreat Registrars.  Please be sure to mention which retreat location(s) and date(s) interest you.


Q: How much does a TOPS retreat cost and is assistance available?

A: The price of a retreat depends on the location and number of days. Most retreats cost between $250 to $600* (sometimes more), including lodging and meals. Retreatants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the location. If you haven't attended a retreat in the past five years and are an active adult TOPS member, you are welcome to apply for one of two retreat scholarships awarded annually in July.
