FAACT's Teen Retreat 2019

SAVE THE DATE - FAACT's Teen Retreat 2019!

OCTOBER 4-6, 2019!
The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus, Oak Brook, Illinois

FAACT’s Sixth Annual Teen Retreat will be held Friday, October 4, through Sunday, October 6, 2019 at The Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus in Oak Brook, Illinois.

The Teen Retreat is all about pre-teens, teens and college students, their siblings, and their parents. The weekend offers an informative program full of fun activities. Teens will learn about managing their food allergies and, more importantly, spend time with peers who have food allergies (and siblings who do not). Siblings are also affected when a family member has food allergies. Our Teen Retreat is a safe place for them to discuss their concerns with a group who not only understands but can share their own experiences, advice, and solutions. 

The TEEN and PARENT Schedules will be available by Summer! 

Registration fees per person for the weekend are as follows:
*NOTE:
Registration fees include entrance to FAACT's Teen Retreat, socials on Friday evening after the Welcome Ceremony (Parent Meet & Greet and the Teen Social), catered lunch on Saturday (allergen-friendly menu planned with catering staff), coffee/soda/juice breaks, and Teen Social/Dance Party on Saturday evening.
