Parent Retreat

For the last six years, 25 parents/carers from Campbell House, Ajuga, and Glenfield Park have attended the Quest for Life Retreat at Bundanoon. A special program has been designed to assist parents with learning new skills and strategies for coping with the challenges of everyday life.

Parents/carers have the opportunity to share stories, attend counselling, take part in workshops, meditate and learn gentle exercise techniques. The focus is on learning about the importance of self-care.

This year there are two retreats being offered. The Aftercare Retreat was for parents/carers who attended Quest for Life in 2010 and 2011.

The 2015 Parent Retreat is being offered to our new parents and carers. Please check the calendar for dates.

We hold fund-raising activities to support this program and Quest for Life's generosity allows for a subsidy which makes the retreat very affordable.

Parents have made the following observations after attending the Retreat:

  • "I feel like I understand how important it is to look after ME now"
  • "I didn't know so many people had similar situations as me"
  • "I've made friends for the first time since coming on this retreat"
  • "I've never felt so supported in my life"
  • "I'm a better parent now. I've learned new ways to deal with my kids"
