IDSC 6th Annual Family Weekend

2017 was our largest meetup yet! Over 620 families joined us at 13 Great Wolf Lodge locations. It was a very successful event and families have excitedly been waiting for the 2018 event! 

This year, we are adding the Minneapolis and Georgia locations and the soon Chicago, IL will be added to our annual event! We are also excited to have the Niagara Falls, Canada location back in our lineup!

Guests have an opportunity to book 1 or 2 nights again this year.

Reservations must be made by July 31, 2018, but many locations book to group capacity much earlier.

As always, book early! Once a room block fills up, we need to renegotiate the rate and we cannot guarantee the same low rate. If your family knows you plan to go, we strongly suggest booking your room as soon as possible!


What is the IDSC Family Weekend?

The IDSC Family Weekend is an opportunity for families to connect and meet in person. With our 16 IDSC Facebook Groups, families are able to seek support and guidance from other parents and families with loved ones with Down syndrome. Many of these families live throughout the United States as well as throughout the world. The Family Weekends provide an opportunity for families to finally meet. 

What happens at an IDSC Family Weekend?

The goal for the weekend is FUN! There will be fun activities planned throughout the weekend.

Can I participate in events if I live locally and am not staying at the lodge?

Absolutely! Throughout the weekend, there are opportunities to socialize. Depending on the location, there will be a schedule of events throughout the weekend. Please join your location's Facebook group to stay up to date on the weekend's events.
