Our 2020 Location is beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada! Nestled between Lake Okanagan in the North and Skaha Lake in the South, is a city of just over 42,000 people. Known for its lakes, beaches, and wineries, Penticton is a world class destination that was voted as a Top 10 Travel Destination by Huffington Post.
In Salish, the language of the area’s original inhabitants, Penticton translates into “A Place to Stay Forever” and with its beautiful summer weather (highs around 27c / 80F in August), warm lakes, and gorgeous scenery it’s easy to see why.

“FAS has reconfirmed so many things for me in terms of our family culture and education choices as well as goals for future life. But the tears that flow, even now as I type this, are for my eleven year old who got on stage last night and performed where previous to this she was hard pressed to speak to strangers. And for a conversation we had where she was just so overjoyed for once in her life to not be considered different or weird. So this love letter is from a mom who could not be more grateful for this space to see her daughter shine.”
I am so grateful for the many presenters and participants who are the visionaries, the pioneers, the ones who just ‘went out and did it’ and took that challenge…Thank you for being here to share your stories with us, and to give us the courage to adventure on!!
Grateful to the FAS for bringing together this wonderful community of traveling families – where together, we make one another feel like ‘home’, no matter where we are in the world.
I’m grateful for all the thought and intent the organizers put in to making the content meaningful for all kinds of traveling families. Thanks for making a truly inclusive event!
“The art tent was fantastic this year. Everytime i peeked in, it was full of children working diligently on their projects. Morgan and Derek were in the Theater and Tech Heads programs and I honestly can’t say enough good things about it. Morgan blossoms during the 4-5 days of the Theater program; it’s an incredible experience for her. And Derek was excited after each Tech Head session. On the first day he didn’t have his iPad but there was an alternative activity of building a batter light! The other days he worked on Stop Motion videos and was really enthusiastic about it. AWESOME job. The Teen Volunteers made a huge impact as well. 6 stars out of 5”
“We are so grateful to have this event to look forward to each year. We have met life long friends at each FAS and look forward to meeting new families and sharing stories.”
“Love the open minded people and kindness of everyone, especially within kids program. We are first timers and were initially intimidated by everyone who already knew each other. But by the final day we had all met people we hope to be friends with for many years to come.”
I’m thankful to be here as a family exploring this incredible city, opening our minds and hearts to new ideas and experiences, and connecting with friends- old and new. Family travel is such a privilege. Thank you to the FAS team for all of your hard work. I feel so blessed to be part of this community!
The Family Adventure Summit donates profits to organizations and projects in the various local communities where the event is held.
Every dollar you spend with Family Adventure Summit goes toward creating an epic and inspiring event for you and your family, and all the families present, and also toward supporting the communities in which we visit.
In 2018 our chosen charity is Caminos de Agua, a local group that brings clean drinking water to communities in San Miguel de Allende that have none. The water that comes from the taps in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico is highly contaminated with fluoride and arsenic. Many communities have no choice but to drink that water and it is literally poisoning people!
We are teaming up with Caminos de Agua to provide two huge rainwater capture systems at a local school. These systems will provide enough clean drinking water for the entire school!
If you would like to help us to build even more rainwater capture systems around San Miguel, Caminos de Agua is ready to take your donations. Every dollar counts and your donation will be rewarded with the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped make a difference in the lives of the local people in the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
