DSDN Rockin' Dad™ Retreat

Connect. Recharge.


August 4-5, 2023



Westin St. Louis


Dads of children with Down Syndrome in online DSDN groups



In 2023, DSDN will host our fifth annual Rockin' Dad Retreat! Rockin' dads (fathers of  children with Down Syndrome in our online group) will gather from across the country. The weekend's activities are planned for dads only (plan out the child care now!) and will focus on supporting dads with young children, although most everything will surely be relevant at all parts of our journey.

You may choose to pay for attending the event or fundraise for DSDN to earn retreat prizes.
