Family Get-Away at DDL

September 2 - 4, 2022

 Enjoy a Weekend in the Country with Your Family

The last couple of years have been difficult for our children – and all of us – in so many ways. We were sad to cancel Family Camp in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid, and the momentum to organize a full week-long family gathering for 2022 got lost in the mix.

We’d like to invite you back! Join us to enjoy a weekend with your family at Dorje Denma Ling — the perfect end to a glorious summer. It’s also a great time to reconnect before the children go back to school, and you’ll still have Labour Day Monday to rest.

Remember what it’s like to enjoy a campfire under the stars? Or wake early in the morning to watch the sun rise? Or stand in Dorje Denma Ling’s open field as the flags are raised?

Please join us for a weekend of family fun, including games, hikes, trips to the beach, and morning meditation practice.

A Few Instructions for Completing Registration

Since you will be registering for your whole family together:

  1. You will be asked to enter the number of people in your group in the lodging section. If your group exceeds the maximum limit set per room, the software will automatically book a second room, cabin or tent. Note that we can manually adjust lodging if, for instance, you have a small child who needs to be in the same room with you. Add this information in the “Comments or Special Needs” field of the registration form.
  2. The next section will ask you for the names of the people and emails for each person in your family group. If a person is too young to have their own email, enter your email instead. NOTE: An email will automatically be sent out to each person in your group requesting them to complete their personal details, such as food preference and health concerns.
  3. The final “Participant” section of the form is where you will enter your personal information regarding diet and health. NOTE: If you used your email for a child, you will be able to enter any dietary or health concerns for that child on his or her behalf. There is no need to try to enter a child’s information on your registration form.
