As technology finds its way into the daily lives of almost everyone, 'Unplugged Weekend' aims to combat bad tech habits. The event is a physical and emotional experience that provides a digital detoxification.

While many millennials and generation Z members cannot image spending a weekend away from technology, this experience is the perfect retreat for generation X consumers. The retreat reinforces the importance of meaningful and personal relationships -- these relationships aim to strengthen external and internal emotions without relying on technology.

'Unplugged Weekend' retreats allow those who participate to appreciate their surroundings more and help participants achieve a well-balanced lifestyle. While generation X consumers see the purpose of technology, these retreats aim to bring their focus back to a well-rounded life. While the children of generation X are seemingly obsessed with technology, an unplugged family adventure helps teach youth about the importance of tech-free bonding and relationship building.
