Here’s some FAST FACTS for our 2021 R&R Weekend 

July 15 -18th  2021


Originally the R&R was to be held in California or on the West Coast, why was the location changed? 

Well ... Covid happen!  The state restrictions in place would impact our ability to meet at the hotel.  With the uncertainty of the next several months, it was decided to move to a Jellystone park to allow us to meet and meet the Covid guidelines and restrictions.  We are looking to go out West for the 2022 R&R. We apologize to our families who were anticipating us holding our R&R out West for 2021.

Do we have to stay at the campground to take part in the R&R? 

Nope, you don't have to stay there to take part. You can stay at a hotel or you may live within driving distance. 
However, you will need to purchase a Day Camp Pass per person, that include access to the Water Zone and pools, adventure mini-golf, use of the jumping pillows and pedal kart track (parental supervision required), hourly activities (some require an additional fee), horseshoes, sand volleyball court, disc golf, basketball, shuffleboard, playground, and fishing pond.

*There will be a $5 fee per vehicle.

What is the cancelation and or Covid policy at campground?

Will there still be research? 

  • Absolutely!  IMDSA is all about connecting families with the wonderful research teams.  We've decided to remove the all day presentations to hopefully be able to hold 2-3 presentation instead. This should allow more time for families to connect. 

What will the weekend look like?

  • We've been listening to our families. You've voiced a desire for a more social atmosphere and Jellystone is a great family friendly location with many all-inclusive activities.
  • It also gives the board more opportunities regroup in an effort to expand. We have the best families and lots of great ideas to continue hosting our conferences.  Additional board members will help us reach those goals.
