Back in 2012 by popular demand! Join your CWD family and friends for a long weekend in a beachfront paradise setting. The Harbor Beach Marriott Resort and Spa has something for everyone. Whether you enjoy relaxing on the beach with a good book and good friends, or would prefer something more invigorating like sailing, scuba diving, or a swim in the surf, the choices really are endless. The Resort is located at 3030 Holiday Drive, Ft. Lauderdale. It is approximately a 10 minute taxi ride from the Ft. Lauderdale airport, and also a short walk from beachfront shopping.

Conference programming for parents (i.e., educational sessions) will be offered on Saturday and Sunday mornings, right after breakfast. Sessions will be 50 minutes in length, each followed by a quick 10 minute coffee break. Note that the children ages 6-17 will have activities during the morning on Saturday and Sunday as well. They will work in specific age groups: Elementary (ages 6-9), Tween (ages 10-12), Teen (ages 13-17), and childcare for potty-trained kids ages 3-5.

The Harbor Beach Marriott is now accepting reservations for the CWD weekend. Rates are $239/night. Rooms include in-room coffee, safe, and high speed internet. To reserve a room, please use the online reservations link, which is specific to the CWD group. You must use this method to book a room to be included in the CWD room block and receive the special rate. You also must complete a conference registration form in order to participate. There family registration fee is separate from the hotel room.
