Parent Weekends

Parent Weekends at Rawhide

Rawhide Parent Weekends are designed to help build strong, lasting family bonds with high-impact group and family sessions. Rawhide draws on over 50 years of experience working with youth and parents during this life-changing retreat.

The three-day weekend will offer at-risk parents a profound experience from which to move beyond symptoms and toward a place of significant healing and growth. Families will receive support, instruction, and encouragement in a welcoming environment and learn how to transform families’ homes into a safe and inviting place.

A Deeper Awareness

Over the course of the retreat, parents will deepen their understanding of:

  • The effects of trauma and a wounded spirit
  • Connections between stress, fear, and anger
  • Dynamics of a toxic personality
  • Causes and effects of addictive strongholds
  • Why behaviors don’t change

About Our Facilitators

Trained facilitators will guide parents through carefully-designed activities and discussions in a dynamic, interactive environment, generating powerful insights to help foster more meaningful family bonds.


Located 30 minutes west of Appleton, Rawhide provides private accommodations and meeting facilities situated on a picturesque campus along the Wolf River.
