Family Retreat Brochure

The Family Retreat is a fun-filled weekend for the whole family with many activities planned for the children as well as for the parents! A place where you don't have to explain why their child doesn't talk, can't wait in line, or has temper-tantrums. No one stares at you or wonders what's wrong with your child. Our weekend is a place where families come together to laugh and cry. Each year the retreat has a theme. Past year's themes have been, pirates, cowboys, down on the farm and animals.

Children will rotate in groups between: Swimming, crafts, outdoor play, indoor rock climbing and much more! Our nursery is for children under 5 years old and includes fun activities developed for this age group.

Parents and caregivers will have the option to attend presentations and activities such as:
