A growing number of gatherings are also sponsored by members of PGR. You can see most of these in the Calendar listings below (details are restricted to members only.)
As an organization of families supporting one another, all of these events are designed, organized and implemented by ourselves--by volunteers. Among this group are some fairly amazing talents, so while we may be casual and informal, these events excel at connecting the PG community with one another, building the connections that sustain, and helping to build that sense of community we all find so meaningful.
What Happens At A Retreat?
Retreats offer engaging events for all members of the family. Over the past retreats we have had fencing classes, music jam sessions on a variety of instruments and vocal styles, spoken word and dance, yarn bombing, board games, professional Magic: The Gathering judges teaching classes, full days of board games, Dungeons and Dragons, Artemis starship bridge simulator, crafting, engineering challenges, ZomeTool builds, daily hikes and yoga, book clubs, women's and men's circles, youth hangouts, chess classes by a Grand Master and so much more. You can even participate in an epic capture the flag battle in homemade costume or your regular clothes.
Parents of younger children can engage on their own while kids are participating in younger set activities geared towards their asynchronous development needs. In the evenings and throughout the days, adults and teens can socialize with true peers in a no-pressure environment where you can truly be yourself.
Content varies each year and if you don't see something you want, volunteer and bring your passion to our retreat. We have a wide range of education levels, socio-economic levels, and cultures all sharing their love for their families and friends. Returning members frequently state that the people of PGR feel like family and they can't wait for the homecoming each year.
