Weekend Getaways are held quarterly for adults with Down syndrome and other chromosomal disorders. Getaways are held from Friday evening to late Sunday afternoon.

Getaway activities include going out for a meal, attending an event (eg. sporting match, theatre production) and general activities typical of a weekend getaway.

Getaways also provide the opportunity for social skill development as well as respite for parents. Many participants have been attending these weekend getaways for a number of years so it is often a chance for close friends to ‘catch-up’ and spend a weekend together.

In addition, Getaways teach life skills with the practical use of the Right to Know program around friendships, sexuality and personal safety.
