FAACT's Sixth Annual Teen Retreat.

Registration & Schedules for Teens and Parents

We look forward to seeing many of you in Oak Brook, Illinois for FAACT's Sixth Annual Teen Retreat. We have a full-packed weekend planned for the teens, siblings, and parents. You definitely don't want to miss this weekend to meet others who live the same lives and share the same experiences as you and your family.

FAACT Spokesperson, Zac Chelini, will be leading the teen sessions with help from FAACT's Program Director, Natascia Simone, and FAACT Spokesperson, Emery Gewirtz.

The Teen Retreat will be full of hands-on and interactive sessions, and there is plenty of fun to be had for all!

* The Friday & Saturday Nights Teen Socials will consist of games, dance, music, karaoke, and more! There will be prizes!

* We have a full schedule for the parents’ sessions as well, hearing from leading experts and advocates, and conducting interactive sessions. There will be a Parent’s Meet & Greet on Friday evening while the teens are enjoying their social events.
