The annual 22Q Texas Retreat is a unique family experience. The 2016 retreat is Nov. 4-6 at Camp For All in Burton, TX.
What makes this retreat so special? When one person in a family faces a challenge it affects the whole family. Our retreat provides a safe environment for those with 22Q and the families who love them. The weekend is often life-changing. For many it is the 1st time to meet another family affected by 22Q and the 1st time they realize they are not alone.
Kids participate in fun, challenging activities, building independence & confidence by doing things they thought were impossible.
Parents are empowered, educated and connected with a strong support system.
Families bond together and leave with renewed strength and hope. But all of this can only happen with the loyal & generous support of friends like you.
The retreat regularly draws more than 100 attendees from Texas and beyond. Retreat expenses for 2016 are expected to exceed $10,000. In years past, families have attended at little or no cost, with all meals, lodging & activities provided. This year families will be asked to pay $50 per person to attend the retreat. Many families are unable to pay this on their own.
Today we invite you to change lives by sponsoring a family. Your donation in any amount can sponsor a specific family you chose, or it can go to any family in need. Please help us make the retreat a reality for every person who wants to attend!
