Bay Area Adventure Weekend
San Francisco, California
November 3-5, 2006
The Marriott Fisherman's Wharf hotel
Meet your CWD friends and ...
... have fun together in San Francisco
Welcome to the Second CWD Adventure!
This weekend event is for both families and college-age (young adult) CWD participants, who will stay at the Marriott Fisherman's Wharf and share a weekend of sight-seeing and outdoor activities. These activities might include biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, hiking through Muir Woods, or visiting Alcatraz and touring the San Francisco Bay via boat. Activities will be weather and interest-dependent. There is a lot to do in the area – these are just a few ideas. There is much to see and do indoors as well if the weather decides not to cooperate! Prior to the weekend of the event, all registered participants will be contacted via email to discuss the options for each age group (and for families as a whole), what the weather looks like it will be doing, and everyone's preferences. We are intentionally leaving the schedule pretty wide-open at this point, and we are open to ideas if you are familiar with the area and have an idea for an activity/outing with a particular age group.
The group will eat breakfast together each day at the hotel. This is included in registration. Lunch will likely be decided by age group, i.e., if the teens are in Chinatown, they will likely eat there. If the young adults are biking across the Golden Gate Bridge, they'll likely eat in a café on the other side. For dinner, we may stay together or break into smaller groups to sample some of the best cuisine in the world! Lunch and dinner are not included in registration. Friday evening from 7:00-9:00, we will have a ‘getting to know you' reception with snacks and some discussion about what the weekend will bring.
Who May Participate?
This weekend is intended for any age group – and we are hoping to have a significant young adult group as part of this. We hope to provide a fun and healthy atmosphere, and to promote friendship, exercise, and excellent diabetes care. The minimum age for participants to stay by themselves in the hotel room is 18. Otherwise you need to have a parent or guardian with you. CWD staff for the event will include Natalie Bellini, Laura Billetdeaux, Jeff Hitchcock, and Chris Tull.
The Weekend Venue
The Marriott Fisherman's Wharf is 'home' for the weekend. Located at 1250 Columbus Ave. in San Francisco, this hotel features the best location in the heart of the world-famous Fisherman's Wharf. The Marriott is close to Nob Hill, Chinatown, Ghirardelli Square and Pier 39, and walking distance from San Francisco's famous Cable Cars and all the restaurants and nightlife of the North Beach district. It is also literally blocks from the Golden Gate Bridge.
Outdoor activities near the hotel include biking, hiking, horseback riding, jogging, kayaking, and sailing. And of course, there is just regular walking, sight-seeing, and enjoying the company of friends. There is a fitness facility on site as well.
High speed internet access is available in all sleeping rooms. Wireless access is offered in the public areas of the hotel.
Rooms are $159 per night for a single or double. The cut-off date for the room block is October 2, so please make your reservation before then! To reserve a room, call the hotel directly (do not call the main 800 Marriott number), 415-775-7555. Remember to state that you are with the Children with Diabetes group. Please note that you do need to complete a Registration Form for the weekend in addition to reserving a room.
