What is PGR?PG Retreat is an organization directed by and for its members, cultivating lifelong communities of support and enriching the lives of profoundly gifted children and their families.
Throughout the year, PGR families and the professionals who serve them engage with one another, providing learning opportunities and fostering lasting friendships among true peers. This engagement culminates in our annual gatherings each summer.
Who is PGR?PGR is an all-volunteer organization. From event organizers to those who manage registration and finances, from the board to the photographers, and those who present specific workshops, everyone volunteers and everyone benefits. Learn more about volunteering. PGR is only as great as the contributions are from each of us—it is truly a self-organized gathering. For added comfort and security, our volunteers are required to pass a background check prior to the retreat.

Committees, Finances, Board Minutes
As a membership of families for families, we organize ourselves through a variety of committees, and we operate in a transparent manner. Learn more about the committees, our finances, and read the board minutes, here. (members only)
Communication & Contacts
For ongoing communication and support, we organize this web site, a number of listservs (members only), and use our membership directory(members only) for contact information and to connect names with faces. We have a secret Facebook group which members can join and the WildApricot app to connect with your PGR community around the world. During retreats we use the Slack app to plan locations and time of speakers and events.
How to JoinWe would be pleased to review your application. There is no fee to apply and applications are reviewed year-round. You can also email us and we'll be happy to respond to your questions first.
We get together for an annual retreat, and members organize informal gatherings in different parts of the country frequently.
The summer of 2019 retreat will be located and at the lodge, castle, and red rocks of Glen Eyrie, Colorado. This site is adjacent to a state park and it provides privacy for our community to interact and connect. The natural environment lets us do what PGR is all about: gather as families to share experiences, build friendships, and create community. None of the PGR activities are restricted based on citizenship or home of record.
