Reserve Your Room

Come Away Confident and Ready

And come prepared to work.

This is not one of those events where you hear a few nice talks, exchange business cards, and leave without any real value. This is an intense 3 full days of training and coaching where we teach you everything we wish we had known when we started our family travel adventures. It's an educational program we've designed that incorporates not only valuable information, but also time for you to introspect, write, discuss, meet others on your path, and receive support for your specific dreams, concerns, and plans.

Our goal is for you to come away with all your questions answered, clarity on how you'll move forward in a way that best serves your family's needs, and the courage and support to make it all happen.

 

Learning Program Schedule

Each day runs from 9am-6pm with a break for lunch.

Every day we'll delve deeply into a new topic. 

  • Day 1 covers how to travel affordably (including our best money-saving travel tips) and make it a meaningful experience that brings the family closer together. 
  • Day 2 is about how to fund your adventure, whether you want to travel for a few weeks or nomadically for years.
  • Day 3 will be all about education, and how to help your kids thrive from birth to university while supporting their passions and personalities.

And woven throughout it all will be a focus on connecting with yourself, your family, and the world in ways that foster deeper understanding and growth. We'll use a variety of learning tools, from lectures, to group coaching, to hands-on practice, and more, to ensure what you learn feels authentic and sinks in deep.

DON'T MISS OUT

To keep this more intimate and personalized, only 40 seats are available. This is your opportunity to gain all the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to take your family on an adventure that will deepen your connection with each other and the world, expand your mind, and open you to new possibilities.

Join Family Adventure Academy and we'll teach you step-by-step how to get out on the road, save money on travel, maximize your child's education, and fund your adventure in a way that keeps your connection thriving.

"My family and I had the immense pleasure of meeting and attending training sessions with the Family Adventure Academy team last year at the Family Adventure Summit in Mexico. Brandon, Jennifer, Amy, Jenn and George are the real deal. They live what they teach, so their advice is practical and useful. Their training sessions are engaging and they provide a wealth of knowledge about all of the ins and outs of long term family travel. Our family decided to start our long term travel journey almost a year early because we felt prepared and confident by what we learned from the team. If you are thinking about pursuing long term family travel, I would highly recommend the Family Adventure Academy."

Judy Watkins

"After attending a workshop, we felt inspired and confident to sell our home and travel full-time as a family. The next year we did just that! We’ve even met up with families that we met at the event. It’s nice to meet people that have the same vision and dreams. We enjoyed our experience and felt like we got answers to our questions and even questions we didn’t even know we had. Highly recommended!"

Jessica Headlee

"I have no words to describe the amount of effort that the team puts in their events. To us, they seem spotless from start to finish. And the content is fabulous, I love to hear them speak and spread their knowledge on traveling as a family. I could keep listening to them for weeks!"

Note: This is an event for adults only. If you're looking for an event you can bring your kids to, check out the Family Adventure Summit.

This event is for you if:

  • You are curious about how intentional travel could benefit your family, and want to see if it's right for you.
  • You have made the commitment to travel with your children but you need support to figure out how to do it effectively and affordably.
  • You've been thinking about homeschooling or worldschooling, but feel overwhelmed by the options and responsibilities, and aren't sure how your kids would learn what they need to learn to "re-enter the system".
  • You want to earn income in a way that feels fulfilling and meaningful to you, and that gives you the time freedom to be with your family more.
  • You are wanting more out of life, including new adventures and challenges that will stretch you, and strengthen your connection with each member of your family.
  • You want to maximize the time with your children while they are still young.
  • You want to raise your children with a global mindset, offering them a "world-class" education.
  • You want to meet interesting people who will cheer you on instead of bring you down.
  • You know there is more to life than what you have been taught is the social norm. You feel bored or tired of the rat race.

This event is NOT for you if:

  • You've already been around the world with your kids and you don't need any more support in the journey.
  • Your work-school routine brings you ultimate joy.
  • Your kids are thriving in school and you don't want to take them out for any reason.
  • You love where you live and don't want to experience new places, cultures, and foods around the world.

 

Meet the Team

We are a group of long-term world travelers, with a combined four decades of family travel experience, raising our kids on the road from birth to university. As pioneers and leaders in this movement, we are here to give you what we wish we would have had when we started.

Brandon Pearce

In his 10th year traveling the world with his wife Jen and three daughters, successful 4-hour workweek entrepreneur, Brandon Pearce is passionate about living life to the fullest while inspiring others to follow their dreams. For Brandon, travel is a catalyst for personal growth, transformation, and family bonding, and he and has family continue to grow and be stretched through visiting and living in now over 43 countries.

Brandon is the founder of the Family Adventure Summit, Music Teacher’s Helper, and several other projects that he manages online from around the world. Brandon has been featured on Tim Ferriss’ 4-hour workweek blog and in Chris Guillebeau’s New York Times best-selling book “The $100 Startup”.

Jennifer Pearce

Jennifer is an enthusiast for intuitive, heart-led living who finds joy in creating life on the other side of her fears. She is a certified high-performance coach and loves sharing with others in this process of living into our full joy and potential to make a positive difference.

Striving to deepen her relationships and connections to the world around and within her, she’s made many life-changing choices. Since 2009, she’s been an avid full-time traveler and worldschooler with her husband, Brandon, and their three daughters. She especially enjoys delving into the realm of interpersonal communication and relationships. Discovering the interconnectedness of life and love and making the most of it, is for her, the journey of a lifetime!

Amy Sztupovszky

Amy has been traveling the world with her husband and two children for the past seven years. Amy and her family enjoy the best of both worlds, typically traveling for between 3 to 6 months at a time and enjoying the pleasures of their home base in British Columbia the rest of the year. 

Amy is living her dream of raising her two boys as global citizens. Her family follows a worldschooling and unschooling philosophy and Amy believes that learning through travel is the best education she can provide for her children. 

Jenn-Sutherland Miller

Jenn Sutherland-Miller traveled full time with her husband and four children for almost eight years, across six continents. Worldschooling her children from birth to university, travel was an integral part of their educational process. She is a teacher by training, a professional writer and editor in the travel and alternative education markets, and a content marketing manager for brands.
She is passionate about women's issues, social justice, and continuing to learn every day. She is the co-founder of Travel Access Project, a non-profit organization that provides grants for gap year travel and country by country resources for families, educators, and adventurers. She is the heart behind How to Worldschool, weekly encouragement and inspiration for families learning together.

George Kaponay

George is now in the eighth continuous year of traveling the world with his wife Bobi and their twin – boy/girl teenage children Lalika and Réka.

This journey has brought them closer together as a cohesive and loving family and they value this as one of the greatest rewards they could have in life.

The Kaponays have visited and lived in more than 40 countries on six continents. Learning, fostering greater understanding and empathy between people is key to their ongoing development as a family. George feels a strong passion for helping families realize their greatest strengths and in facilitating the means by which families can find their direction and build and live their own family stories of success. Together with his wife and their children, over the course of their travels and learnings, they created The Intuition Game and Labour of Love, a process to help you find your true direction and see your family's, group's or business' ventures come to fruition.
