Our biennial retreats are a conference for families affected by chILD. Over the years our events have been funded by generous donors who we thank wholeheartedly.

The purpose of our event is for families, children and their siblings to connect, learn and share their chILD experience. Families have commented on the “safe space” the retreat provides and having the ability to have moments of ordinariness in a group space. We provide speakers who generously give their time to talk about chILD and other related topics such as feeding or genetics.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to lack of funding and the expansion of the ChILD Community, with great regret, we have ceased the biennial retreats.

We held retreats in 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2016. Our annual retreats are helping us forge a strong chILD community that continues to expand and to learn not only from our guest speakers but most importantly, from one another.
