Frequently Asked Questions

What is the schedule of events?

The 2018 summit runs from October 30th to November 2nd in San Miguel De Allende. We are currently in the process of creating our schedule of events and making sure that we have all of the topics covered that our community has asked for! For more information check out our Program Page from last year.

What activities will be available for the kids?

We hope to keep kids engaged with activities in the arts, culture, technology, nature, and more. There will be a variety of activities for kids to choose from with every age. Our hope is that each child will find something that resonates with them and that this weekend will be filled with fun, learning, adventure, and new friends! To get an idea of the program we offered in 2017 please see our Children’s Activities Page.

We will be updating our 2018 schedule soon! Children will be engaged in activities for the entire weekend. The activities will correspond with the timing for the adult workshops so families can check in with each other at breaks and have lunch together. We ask that all children under the age of two remain with their parents for the entire weekend.

Who is the event for?

The Family Adventure Summit is for families who are interested in incorporating long-term travel as part of their lifestyle, whether they’ve been traveling nomadically for years, travel a few months per year from home, or are just starting out on their journey. There will also be plenty of opportunities for our attendees to ask questions and give answers in our panel discussions and “unconference” sessions. Click here to hear from other families who attended our 2017 conference.

What topics will be covered at the event?

We hope to cover all aspects of long-term travel. Logistics, education, location independence, entrepreneurship, money, budgets, single-parent travelers, traveling with a disability, getting more out of travel, living your truth, dealing with naysayers, staying in contact with friends and family, intuition, and many more!
