We are looking forward to our third trip to the FVC. With a superb location on the ocean, we look forward to a healthy week of fun in the sun, lots of great activities and a perfect balance between enjoying special time with our child and great childcare that gives us a nice break. The accommodations are spacious suites in student dorms, which they are "bare bones" in terms of decor and amenities (realized we don't miss a TV quite quickly!), are quite comfortable and easy to navigate. The food in the dining commons is excellent (quite a surprise) with many healthy options at each meal. The FVC is staffed and operated by students and recent graduates who are highly professional and very outgoing...and are always striving to ensure maximum fun for all. We appreciate the special opportunity to stay here, and can easily understand how some families return year after year, and even generation after generation.
