Because every family needs a reason to celebrate
Celebration Vacations give sick children and their families a chance for a weekend of “normalcy”, a weekend where their illness is not a factor and they can just be a family. Celebration Vacations offer families time to relax and rejuvenate during customized weekend getaways. We provide lodging, meals, and tickets to area attractions at each family’s destination of choice. We make an effort to supply a multitude of different art, entertainment and culturally related activities to our families to make sure they get rare and important experiences. Families are provided vacations ranging from a trip to Niagara Falls; Great Wolf Lodge for indoor waterpark fun; Washington, DC for sightseeing, a museums, and a tour of the city; and of course, dozens of vacations to Sesame Place, Busch Gardens, Hershey Park, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Always included in the vacation packages are special touches like new pajamas, travel snacks and activity books that add to their experience.
As you know, each Celebration Vacation is customized for the family that will be attending. We do not provide “cookie cutter” weekends away. We encourage families to call our offices and make special requests, our sole focus when planning their Celebration Vacation are the interests of our children and their families. Because of the great diversity in patients, we also have a great diversity of interests and abilities. Some families may like nothing more than to spend the weekend in Philadelphia seeing the sites, while families with smaller children would love to go to Sesame Place. Perhaps an older child would love to go to the beach, while another family simply goes to Baltimore to swim in a hotel pool and visit the aquarium, since they need to stay close to home because of their child’s weakened immune system. We work to customize each activity in which our families participate.
