FAACT's Teen Retreat 2019

FAACT's Teen Retreat 2019!

OCTOBER 4-6, 2019
The Hyatt Lodge & Hyatt Lodge Conference Center, Oak Brook, Illinois

FAACT's Celebrity Spokesperson, August Maturo, to join FAACT’s Sixth Annual Teen Retreat, which will be Friday, October 4, through Sunday, October 6, 2019 at The Hyatt Lodge & Conference Center 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.
