Join families of children, teens and young adults who have a diagnosis of hemiplegia for a relaxing weekend this summer. CHASA has hosted 13 national family retreats and families tell us they want more!
In 2015, we’ve set up regional gatherings – CHASA Family Reunions – so we can include as many families as possible with this wonderful source of friendship and support.
If you’ve attended a CHASA national retreat, you’ll notice the reunions are little different. The CHASA Family Reunion will be a vacation with other families who just happen to have someone in their family with a diagnosis of hemiplegia. CHASA will connect families in a private Facebook group several months before the retreat. This is where you’ll plan activities and outings. During the reunion, you may decide to explore the hotel city, decorate cookies, do arts and crafts, go bowling together or all of the above. Your plans may be in small groups or a large group outing, like an evening at the park. We’ll give you ideas and help you connect. Like our national retreat, you’ll meet others, build relationships, make life-long friends and have fun!
A few more details:
- Please fill out a form for the reunion you’ll attend, make your hotel reservations, and we’ll add you to the Facebook group for your reunion.
- CHASA is not charging a registration fee.
- You may attend more than one reunion.
- You are not required to stay at the hotel, but you may not be able to use hotel facilities like the pool or playground if you’re not a hotel guest.
- Make room reservations as soon as possible. We do not have room space or price guaranteed, so lock in your reservation and rate.
- If you find a lower rate at the same hotel, take it. You are not required to use the CHASA group rate.
- If you have questions, contact us.
