This is a special program for families of school-aged children geared toward strengthening family bonds and providing education and support to parents. It features a weekend retreat to Camp Jewell Outdoor Center in Colebrook, CT. It's a wonderful opportunity to take your 4-15 year old kids away for a weekend that combines lots of fun, group adult time and learning. Facilitated by our staff and great volunteer professionals, adult workshops are focused on handling stress, parenting and living on a "financial shoestring". While adults are in workshops, kids are enjoying a full range of camp activities, supervised by their capable staff.
