Respite events give parents and caregivers some time to themselves. Our respite events let caregivers relax, knowing that their loved one is have a great time with their peers under the guidance of our caring staff and volunteers. Our Friday Night Flicks is free and open to children with special needs and their siblings. Participants join us for games, pizza and a movie while parents/caregivers have a few hours to themselves. Respite Events are offered periodically throughout the year.
We are ready for adventure all year long! Join us as we explore all that Nantucket has to offer and meet individuals and organizations that make our island such special place. Adventure Groups do it all. We explore hiking and conservation trails, learning all about the plants and animals that we see. Sail the harbor with Shearwater Excursions, learn about farming with Sustainable Nantucket, learn about Nantucket's whaling past with the Whaling Museum and more. The sky is the limit! Adventure Groups are offered to participants age five and up. This program is provided with generous support from the Nantucket Fund.
