Family First!

This is a special program for families of school-aged children geared toward strengthening family bonds and providing education and support to parents.  It features a weekend retreat to Camp Jewell Outdoor Center in Colebrook, CT. It's a wonderful opportunity to take your 4-15 year old kids away for a weekend that combines lots of fun, group adult time and learning.  Facilitated by our staff and great volunteer professionals, adult workshops are focused on handling stress, parenting and living on a "financial shoestring". While adults are in workshops, kids are enjoying a full range of camp activities, supervised by their capable staff.

<<Family First Re-Visited! >>

Spring Retreat Weekend:

 June 2 - June 4, 2017 

 A time to revisit Camp Jewel one last time! If you have attended Family First in year's past and would liketo return one more time, please contact our office. [Fall 2016 participants are not eligible, sorry!]

As before, the weekend will feature parent workshops, yoga, massage, horseback riding, family activities and more.  If you would like to re-connect with old friends as well as make new ones, experience similar activities or something you didn't have time to try in the past, join us for fun, renewal, challenge- all of the things that make Family First special! Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.  $20 non-refundable fee.

In future years, this program will be revised and New Milford based, so please join us to spend time at beautiful YMCA Camp Jewell one more time!
