We are so excited to be announcing a new element of the Family Adventure Summit that we believe will truly serve the community in a powerful way. In fact, the main reason we’re doing this is because our 2017 attendees asked for it!
You see, in reviewing attendee feedback after the 2017 conference, one of the requests we heard over and over was the desire for deeper training on certain topics – more than could be covered in a short 1-2 hour session.
We took this request to heart and have spent months working on ways we could balance the varied levels of world travel experience of our attendees, with the time we have allocated in a conference setting, with the time it would take to provide a deep and enriching learning experience on the topics attendees wanted more of.
That was when the idea for optional pre and post-conference deep dives was born.
At this year’s conference in San Miguel de Allende, we are trying something completely new. We are calling it the Family Adventure Summit Academy.
What Is the Family Adventure Summit Academy?
The optional Academies will be all-day deep dives, facilitated by seasoned travelers who were chosen because of their knowledge, experience, and ability to inspire. They will be held outside of the conference schedule either pre or post-conference.
These Academies are for those looking to deepen their understanding of their chosen topic. These are ALL DAY deep dives with limited participants. Because not every attendee will be interested in the topics of these academies, we have made these optional parts of the conference, hence the academies are not included in the price of the summit.
Because these workshops are all day events, they are going to be going into a lot more detail than would be possible in a 60 or 90-minute conference workshop. If you are interested in any of these topics, we encourage you to sign up now to guarantee your space. As we already have over 270 people registered for the event, we expect these Academies to sell out quickly!
Unlike the main Family Adventure Summit event, where we have an epic kids program with well-facilitated and educational activities for all ages, these academies are for adults only (except for the Teen Academy and Travel Academy) and will not include childcare. We encourage you to make arrangements with a spouse, other visiting families, or a babysitter to take care of your children so you can focus 100% on this learning opportunity. However, we welcome you to bring infants in arms as needed.
Here is our stellar Academy line up:
