The Holy Family Fests have been so wonderful and hugely formative for our teens especially. I am humbled every year by the corps members who make this apostolate happen.  — Melanie

Our family had an amazing time! The Holy Family Fest was a wonderful opportunity to grow in faith, build community with other Catholic families, and have fun. We are so grateful that a place like this exists and for the apostolate that makes it all possible!          — Jessica 

Amazing, amazing, amazing! We just attended our first Catholic Familyland event. We will be back next year. Fun, holy and great friendships were formed! Much appreciation to all of the staff who puts their heart and soul into the programs. — Craig 

Our family of eight has been spending a week at Catholic Familyland every summer for the past five summers. We pray, swim, ride ponies and horses, go to Mass, dance, go to confession, make s'mores, pray the rosary, make friends, go to adoration, ride water slides, and listen to inspirational speakers all in one week! The teen program is twice a day and is dynamic. We all have a ton of fun while being filled up spiritually at the same time. They truly understand families.  — Amanda

This was our first week long Holy Family Fest with 7 children ranging from 17 years to 8 months old. Everyone was so friendly. The range of activities was wonderful and we appreciated the safe fun atmosphere. Everyone had a great time! When we were driving away our 5 and 8 year olds begged us to come back next year, followed by a plea from the teenagers, "We HAVE to come back next year!" To get this reaction from teenagers who knew no one when we arrived is amazing to hear as a parent—you have definitely earned 5 stars!! Thank you for a wonderful family building week! We look forward to coming back again next year!  — Andrea
