Winter Weekend Family Getaway

Come with us this winter to a place where you can relax, have fun, and grow in your Christian faith. Family Fest’s Winter Weekend is a Christ-centered retreat for families to engage with one another and connect with God in significant ways. Two great weekends to choose from: Martin Luther King Weekend - January 17-20, 2025, and President's Weekend - February 14-17, 2025. Arrival begins after dinner on Friday night and departure is after lunch on Monday.

Your family will experience Great Family Worship with songs and fun that bring out the joy in following Jesus. You will have Dynamic Teaching for adults and Incredible Kid's Programs for children from newborns to 9th grade where they will learn about the love of Jesus through our faithful KCs (Kids Counselors). Most importantly, you will be surrounded by other families who seek Christ and who want to share that with their children in a way that is engaging and fun!

Registration opens in September. Mark your calendar and plan on a great weekend.

Family Fest is committed to trying to make Winter Weekend affordable to all. In order to do this, our board has decided to charge less than what it actually costs per family for Winter Weekend and to raise funds to make up the difference. We are grateful to those who support this ministry.

We also have scholarships and discounts available. First time families get a $125 per adult discount. Family Fest is committed to making sure that finances never get in the way of a family attending our retreats. We have funds available to help make this possible for all families.
