In addition to our national network of "Porch Partner" Bed & Breakfast Inns, A Mother's Rest hosts several larger, signature events each year as well.
1) Mommy & Me: Moms of children/adults with extra needs can enjoy a 3-night retreat with their NON special needs son or daughter at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel in Jekyll Island, GA. This is special one-on-one time that every child needs. Typically held in March of each year.
2) #SLEEPMATTERS Cruise: Exclusively for moms of children/adults with extra needs, as well as spouses of disabled veterans and special educators as well. Four nights at sea to do everything or nothing. All meals included. Moms can come solo in a private room or share with one other extra needs mom. Typically held in February of each year.
3) YOGI BEAR Family "Glamping" Trip: The PERFECT, affordable extra needs family vacation. Don't miss it. Best family trip you'll ever take. The park is booked entirely for our families, so you're on a private family trip with 100 other extra needs families! Choose from (seven) different cabin types/floor plans, as well as tent and RV sites. Held every year in July at Jellystone Park in Mammoth Cave, KY.
4) Buddy Cruise: The ultimate "world-school" adventure for families of those with extra needs! Originally begun for families of Down syndrome, it now is open and inclusive to all disabilities. Buddy Cruise is an educational conference at sea, and includes scheduled speakers and presentations, as well as many organized group activities!
