Our second retreat of 2013, for families who have a child with spina bifida, was a great one! We all had so much fun together! This retreat was somewhat different than past retreats because we mostly had families with teens. The teens were slightly hard to peel away from their cell phones and the outside world at first, but we eventually got their full attention and had a blast! We even filmed our very own version of the Harlem Shake (a huge youtube trend... Here is the link to our video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gf1j_kdaPzM&list=UUW1yGI2Et6LBuADvua-LQ3A&index=2 )

Along with the teens, we also had so much fun with the little ones. Kids Korner (age-appropriate activities for retreat participants 1st grade and under) can basically be filmed as a segment for the old TV show Kids Say the Darndest Things. Every time I enter the room for Kids Korner I can guarantee that I will be laughing at something within 5 minutes. DTD kids are just too cute!

Let me not forget the parents either! You could just tell that the parents on this retreat truly appreciated our program. By the end of the three days, all the parents had already become very close and even made promises to meet up with each other in the coming weeks and months after the retreat!

Here are some testimonies from the families from this retreat:

I was really impressed with how engaging and fun a lot of the activities were. Artworld and Challenge Quest were great along with the discussion groups. The staff was talented, energetic, and caring which was great.

This was even better than I expected. The staff was GREAT and the activities got everyone involved- even my husband!

Very wonderful experience. I liked the family togetherness which invcluded my family as well as the other families. Staying together during activities was nice.

I am the Outreach Coordinator for Deliver the Dream.
