The Family Adventure Summit is an in-person gathering of 400+ inspiring people celebrating family connection, life learning, long-term travel, community, creative living, and soaking in life to the fullest. It’s a super fun, high energy, family-focused, and inspiring event for any family intent on living with purpose and adventure.
Come hear inspiring speakers, participate in hands-on workshops, join informal discussions, and make new friends, all in a beautiful location with fun games and activities for all ages. Whether you’ve been traveling long-term with your family for years and want to meet your tribe, or you’re just considering doing something different, come meet other families who are traveling your path.
To help fuel our mission of bringing the benefits of long-term family travel to more families, The Family Adventure Summit donates 100% of its profits to organizations and projects that support family travel, as well as supporting various local communities around the world.
Come learn about how to make the most of your travel adventure. We’re excited to see you there!

The 2018 Family Adventure Summit runs from Oct 30-Nov 2, 2018 with optional Academies Oct 28, 29 and Nov 3, 4. Check out our full schedule to see our growing list of workshops, discussions, panels, activities, and keynote speeches.
We will be running a full children’s program (ages 5-18), and a little’s program (aged 2-4) while the adults are attending their sessions. Children under 2 are required to stay with their parents.
There will be something for every child including project-based learning, full group games, and an open art room. And while we encourage the teens to participate in all of the activities, there will also be some special activities on offer exclusively for the teens. Learn more about our Children’s program here.
While the Family Adventure Summit is the best way we know to meet hundreds of other inspiring families who are intent on living lives of purpose and adventure, if you’re looking for a more intimate retreat-style event, then we invite you to consider the At Home in the World Family Retreats.
The main focus is on fostering deeper connections as a family and living “At Home” in the world wherever we are. Our fun and transformative family learning program is mindfully designed and facilitated along with leading psychologist and children’s mindfulness educator, Jelena Popovic. This is truly a “retreat”, and not just a series of package tours – allowing deep introspection and discussion about important topics for your personal and family growth.
And, of course, we’ll get the chance to experience some of the most beautiful, local, and culturally unique aspects of these locations!
The retreat in Bali is at a beautiful zero-waste resort surrounded by rice fields, with food grown from its own organic, hydroponic garden. It’s held over the wondrous Nyepi holiday (Feb/March), with its ogoh-ogoh monsters paraded to the sound of gamelan music, followed by the island’s day of silence.
The retreat in Transylvania is at the foot of a scenic mountain range in a traditional Transylvanian resort with wood-cabin accommodations and fun outdoor activities, and is held over the 1000 Székely Girls festival (July) where families from all over the region arrive in horse drawn carriages and traditional dress for a day of song, dance, food, and handicrafts.
This is just a taste of what you can expect at the retreat. If this sounds like it would be of interest or benefit to your family, we encourage you visit the website to learn more.
To preserve the intimate nature of this retreat, each location is limited to just ten families, so register soon to reserve your place. And we hope to see you there!
To help fuel our mission of bringing the benefits of long-term family travel to more families, The Family Adventure Summit donates 100% of its profits to organizations and projects for this purpose, as well as supporting various local communities around the world.
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 other families around the world to live with more purpose and adventure.
As we are not yet accepting direct donations to our foundation, and as we need to reach a profitable place first, we ask that you first support us by attending the event and our Academies. If you want to make a direct contribution to traveling families now, we also invite you to donate to organizations like the Travel Access Project, which is a not-for-profit that helps young adults turn their independent gap year into an educational experience to help inspire a passion-driven life.
