PTC Weekend Respite
The PTC Weekend program is a weekend respite opportunity which provides individuals the opportunity to experience a fun overnight get-a-way with other peers. Individuals will have the opportunity to engage in an event/activity during the day with their peers. However, the fun does not stop once dinner and the activity are over. After the activity, they head back to the hotel. Once there, they can choose to swim, watch movies, play games or just hang out and relax while socializing with friends in the group. Individuals share a queen size bed with one other individual of the same gender. On Sunday morning, the group has breakfast provided by the hotel; after which staff provide transportation for the individual back to their home.
Some examples of activities include but are not limited to: hanging out at the Clubhouse, bowling, The Science Museum, Sporting events, Water Park of America, The MN Zoo, The Renaissance Festival and so many more! Weekend activities vary from weekend to weekend on a quarterly cycle. PTC also offers quarterly dances to all individuals who receive PTC services, which are always a big hit.
