Penticton, 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.
The Okanagan Valley is situated on the most Northern tip of the Sonoran Desert. The hills around Penticton are filled with pine, sagebrush, and prickly-pear cactus. In stark contrast to the dry hills is the irrigated valley bottom filled with lakes, rivers, orchards, and vineyards. One of Penticton’s biggest draws is the wine industry, with over 60 wineries within a 20-minute drive of downtown Penticton.
If you choose to stay for more than the conference, there is plenty to do in and around Penticton. Spend the day at the beach, challenge yourself to some world class rock climbing (there are some family friendly climbs!), enjoy the Wibit Waterpark, float down the Penticton Channel, take a hike in the mountains, tour wineries, or just sit back and enjoy the views!
Penticton is an easy road trip from much of Western Canada and the United States. And if you prefer to camp, there are several RV parks just minutes from the resort.
Here are the driving times from nearby cities:
If you live further afield, you can fly straight into Penticton (YYF). Or drive from the International Airport in Kelowna (YLW 1 hour away) or Vancouver (YVR).
The 2017 Family Adventure Summit will be held at The Penticton Lakeside Resort in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada!
The Lakeside meets all of our requirements for the perfect place for the Family Adventure Summit. The resort has ample meeting space to accommodate our group, has a family-friendly feel, and there is amazing outdoor space within walking distance including beaches, parks, a playground, and a Japanese garden.
The resort is situated on the shores of Lake Okanagan, with its own private beach, as well as public beaches on either side of the resort. Penticton’s downtown core is an easy one minute stroll away where you will find cute shops, cozy cafes, and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.
Each room at the Lakeside comes with either two queen beds or one king bed, a mini fridge, free wifi, a private balcony, and access to the gym, hot tub, and pool.
We have negotiated a group rate of $190 CAD for a city view room, $200 CAD for a beach view room, and $210 CAD for a lake view room. (Approximately $142-$158 USD)
An added bonus for holding the summit in Canada is the very favorable exchange rate for American to Canadian Dollars. Currently, one USD is worth 1.33 CAD which makes Canada a more affordable destination for our American attendees!
