Normally, the following wording is used to explain what happens at your retreat. However, the 2020 Adult Children’s Retreat will be virtual.
“C.O.P.S. Adult Children’s Retreat is planned for surviving adult children and their spouse/domestic partner (21 years or older) of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria. Other relatives and friends are not eligible to attend.
At times, adult-aged children are very young when they lose their parent and struggle with their loss as they grow into the milestones of adulthood, while others may have lost their parent in their adulthood. Attendees of this program are a wide variety of ages, and all ages are encouraged to attend.
C.O.P.S. Adult Children’s Retreat will give you the opportunity to attend grief seminar sessions specifically designed for your needs, participate in challenging and fun outdoor, activities and receive support from peers who truly understand. It is our goal for you to leave the retreat feeling relaxed, with a continuing support system and a tremendous sense of personal growth and self-awareness for the future.”
