Back by popular demand! Hemophilia of North Carolina's 2016 Family Retreat will take place this fall in the beautiful North Carolina Mountains, nestled between Asheville and the Great Smoky Mountains!
We invite families who have children affected by a bleeding disorder to join us for a fun and educational retreat. Programming will be geared towards families who have children 12 and under, including childcare for all ages.
Accommodations and meals will be provided at no cost to HNC member families thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and donors. Accommodations will be in the Terrace Hotel. Check-in is at 4:00pm on Friday. Rooms will include either king or double queen beds. All rooms have a private bath, TV, Wi-Fi, and refrigerator. Due to the size of the rooms, we ask that family groups be limited to 4 per family. However, if you do need additional space to accommodate a larger family, please call the HNC office to check availability. A limited number of handicap accessible rooms are available upon request.
Programs will begin at 5:00pm on Friday and will conclude on Sunday at 1:00pm, after lunch.
This year’s family retreat will feature:
- A two-night stay at the Terrace Hotel, part of the Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center. All meals included.
- Campfire and activities Friday night.
- Game Night on Saturday after dinner.
- Adult Track will include an HNC HOPE Program overview, Be S.M.A.R.T, Exploring Emotional Well-being, Education for Schools, and more.
- Children’s Track will include My Story of Resilience, Teddy Bear Hospital, Wild Encounters Nature Program, mini-golf, games, childcare for infants and toddlers, and more.
- Plus an optional off-site trip.
We request that you attend all programs. We will be offering gas cards to everyone who attends all the sessions. There will also be free time built in to enjoy the beautiful facility and surrounding mountain areas. If you do not believe that you will be able to make the commitment to attend, please do not register.
Registration Deadline is Tuesday, September 13. Registration is on a first come-first serve basis. Priority will be given to those who have a child 12 and under with a bleeding disorder.
Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center is located in the heart of the North Carolina mountains about 45 minutes past Asheville. Overlooking Lake Junaluska, there are many hiking and walking trails including the Lake Junaluska Walking Trail, Rose Walk, and more. In late September we still be able to catch some beautiful colors in the trees at the tail end of the fall leaf season. For more information about the facility, visit www.lakejunaluska.com.
