What is PG Retreat?
PG Retreat is a community of families with profoundly gifted children and teens.
Throughout the year, fantastic regional events are in the works across the country. See the Events page for more information.
The Columbus Group defines gifted as "asynchronous development in which advanced cognitive abilities and heightened intensity combine to create inner experiences and awareness that are qualitatively different from the norm. This asynchrony increases with higher intellectual capacity. The uniqueness of the gifted renders them particularly vulnerable and requires modifications in parenting, teaching and counseling in order for them to develop optimally." (The Columbus Group, 1991) The profoundly gifted are the outliers of this population.
Our families and the professionals who serve them engage with one another, providing learning opportunities and fostering lasting friendships among true peers.
The community connects during our summer retreats, informal member-run local gatherings, and through a rich and dynamic online community year-round.
