Family Retreat

Sometimes you need a break from it all to press the reset button, and return to the happy and harmonious family life you yearn for. While it has been proven that spending time together helps families to bond and create lasting relationships, many families don’t have the time or tools to do so.

The By Peaceful Waters Family Retreat enables families to “get away from it all” and reconnect at a deeper level. This fun and interactive one-day retreat gives families the opportunity and the guidance to enjoy a memorable day out where each member is learning tools to help form harmonious, lasting bonds. Families who play together stay together!


Spend the day in the beautiful surroundings of Friedaland (Peace Land) retreat centre guided by a Parenting & Family Coach to re-connect as a family. Each activity has been specially selected to enhance collaboration, cooperation and communication within families.

During the course of the day, your family will:

  • enjoy collaborative activities
  • adventure through guided activities
  • learn how to foster harmonious relationships
  • take part in fun family challenges

In addition to the guided activities, your family will also be able to enjoy the final hour of the day freely exploring the beautiful 44-acre oasis that includes: 

  • vast meadows and 2km of forested trails
  • small orchard, hopsyard and vineyard

  • paintball area and trampoline
