This incredible retreat was designed to nurture you and your whole family! More than a fun time together, this retreat will help your whole family get more connected. We’ll help you bond with your kids as you develop a family mission statement, engage in team building exercises and learn tools to strengthen communication skills. Enjoy time together as a family AND time on your own – while our team of facilitators engage your kids in nature-based learning, mindfulness-based practices and social-emotional learning! Enjoy 3.5 to 4 hours of time on your own each day, practicing yoga and mindfulness (or indulging in a dip in the hot tub, a nap, a surf or a hike!) – as our team takes care of your kids – so you can truly have time to refuel and refill your cup, and will have more to offer your kids in return.

We’re here for YOU. We’re here for your KIDS & TEENS. We’re here for your WHOLE FAMILY!
