PG Retreat is directed by and for its members, to cultivate life-long communities of support, and enrich the lives of profoundly gifted children and their families.
Families with at least one profoundly gifted offspring under 17 and profoundly gifted individuals 18 - 23 years old can apply. At our annual gathering, families come together with professionals who serve them to find support and understanding and to build lasting friendships among true peers.
Member-run since 2006, our retreats have been held in Colorado, Maryland, and North Carolina. During the height of COVID, we ran Virtual Retreats. In 2022 & 2023, our “family reunion” was in Estes Park, Colorado. It will be in Ohio for 2024. There are also vibrant member-run virtual sessions and physical gatherings across the country throughout the year.
Our five-day events are filled with scheduled activities and quiet time to meet the needs of all family members. Attendees can learn new skills, play games, connect with peers, enjoy the variety show, share the challenges and successes of profound giftedness with people who understand, gain from the experiences of others, or take in the research from participating professionals.
