FS 2021 Application will open in September 2020
a summer vacation in Colorado: hiking, biking, and casting a fishing line in the Rocky Mountains; relaxing in a lodge nestled on the mountainside conversing quietly with your spouse; seeing your children enjoy friends and conversation,
use their imagination, and explore nature with a sense of adventure—all without the constant distractions of video games and digital entertainment!
Take time to reflect, to share ideas among friends, to refresh on one of the most important, difficult, and rewarding parts of your life—being a parent. Rediscover the joy of dinner conversation and telling stories, and relax—all three meals are catered every day!
Imagine a week of Family Summer.
Thank you for a wonderful time! We are taking home a lot with us and I feel like I have gained a lot on how to be a better wife, mother, human… and feel motivated to actually do the work! It was a perfect balance of family time, reflection time and fun!

What is Family Summer?
A short description of the best all-inclusive vacation for your family.
We didnʼt just like Family Summer, we loved it! As a dad of 5, there
was real rest from the normal day-to-day: everything was made so easy for us. The meals are completely taken care of (and delicious!) The views from the hotel and all over Beaver Creek were breathtaking. Every morning when we opened our curtains, our one year old would say, "Oh woooow!" Beauty everywhere!
The planned activities around the resort were adventurous and challenging for a variety of ages. We didnʼt know that we would enjoy hiking with the kids as much as we did - they could do so much more than we thought they were capable of. Family bingo and square dancing were huge highlights. There is so much leisure time to give to these kinds of things that normal life doesnʼt always present to families.
We made friends with other couples through Family Enrichment small group discussions and other get togethers, and the kids made fast friends through their camp groups.
Our family vacation at Family Summer overflowed with all of the good stuff: rest, friends, adventure, beauty, silliness inspiration, learning, freedom.
