Each morning parents participate in a Family Enrichment course. These courses are based on a case study method that considers real situations. Small teams of four to five couples first analyze a case. The teams then present and discuss their findings with the other couples during a general session moderated by an expert in family development. (Please refer to the Family Enrichment section to learn more about the course.)
In order for parents to be able to participate in Family Enrichment in the morning, children will be divided into age groups. Babies will be cared for by experienced and loving adults while toddlers and older children will be cared by young and energetic counselors.
In the afternoon, parents join their children and other families relaxing by the pool, hiking, biking, riding horseback, rafting, fishing, or perhaps a nap! (Some of these activities will require an extra cost). Babysitting will also be provided in the afternoons for families with babies and toddlers. Evenings include both activities for families and events for adults: music and, why not, dance…conversations under the stars, movie forums, skits and games.
All three meals are catered every day, so relax — it’s a real vacation!
No activities are mandatory and families can skip some of them to do things of their choice. However, our intent is to have families with parents that will value and seek the Family Enrichment program and other group activities.
A priest will accompany us all week. We will set up a Chapel and Mass will be celebrated daily for anyone wishing to attend.

A typical day at Family Summer
"The structure of the schedule was great - putting all of the cases and talks first thing in the morning allowed us to take advantage of our most naturally focused part of the day." Michelle A., New York
