Beyond Adopteen

Embracing a lifetime of connections
Beyond Adopteen is built for adult adoptees. It is our hope to bring annual retreats, community events, and tour trips to ages 18+ and 21+ through Beyond Adopteen. We are dedicated to providing community connection opportunities and resources for adult adoptees, whether they are navigating new worlds, entering the workforce, or starting a family of their own.
2024 Beyond Adopteen Retreat
Silver Cliff Ranch
Nathrop, CO
August 9 – 12, 2024
We’re bringing it back to those good ol’ summer camp days for 2024. Come reconnect, refocus, and reflect with fellow adult adoptees from around the world over a cozy campfire!
(Must be 21+ to attend)
A Weekend Like No Other
This year’s Beyond Adopteen Retreat is all-inclusive and jam-packed with classic Rocky Mountain adventure. We’re talking hot springs, white water rafting, horseback riding, fly fishing… and just some good old-fashioned fun.
A full weekend of nostalgic camp vibes, workshops, and adventure in a “blink-of-an-eye town” that Uncover Colorado says has “a general store, a gas station, and some recreation”? You don’t want to miss this.
Beyond Adopteen Retreat 2024 is a chance to refocus, reengage, and refresh your connections with the adoptee community.
Whether it’s an excuse to further delay another quality control evaluation or a chance to catch up with old friends you’ve lost touch with, we promise this retreat will be the vacation you need. We’re feeding that inner child and making no apologies. Plus, there will be s’mores, made over a campfire! What could be better?
Beyond Adopteen
Together at last.

Every year, new ideas and new conversation topics are brought to the table by brilliant, fun-loving, intentional adoptees from all walks of life to help make the Beyond Adopteen Retreat all that it can be.
