Most retreats and camps that I've found are only for the cancer patient, but I found one that includes the entire family called Little Pink Houses of Hope.
It is a full week vacation (you only have to pay to travel to the destination), locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Maryland, Texas, Michigan, Arizona, Florida, and California, private accommodations including a kitchen stocked with breakfasts and drinks, lunch and dinner with the group, a full schedule of activities but everything is optional, and each family gets a personal liaison. I'm waiting to hear if I got in for September, my husband and I really need a break from dealing with cancer with non-stop around the clock.
I understand exactly what you're talking about - it's so much harder on the people around us because there is so little support for them. I've spent much time trying to find resources to help my husband deal with my Stage IV DX but there is little out there.
