Forever Retreats are hosted by Ambassadors all across the country and sponsored by Forever.
No two events are exactly the same, but many share some common themes:
- Local Forever™ Ambassadors and users sharing knowledge
- Time to visit with old friends and make new ones
- Creative activities and challenges
- Training and support from experts in the field, including Forever team members
- A goody bag full of great stuff

What You’ll Learn: Digital Scrapbooking, Photography, and Business Opportunities
You can learn from the pros when you attend a Forever Retreat. Take lessons from digital scrapbooking experts and professional photographers, dive deeply into your Forever Storage® with the help of one of our knowledgeable ambassadors, and learn more about Forever business opportunities!
What You’ll Do: Crop Time, Click with Nick, & More
Love to scrapbook digitally or traditionally? Take advantage of our 48-hour crop room, where you can hunker down with friends new and old to create amazing photo projects. Or follow along with Nick Kelsh on one of his famous Click with Nick Photo Sessions. Take advantage of a whole weekend of activities!
What You’ll Take Home: Goody Bag, Training, & Great Memories
All attendees receive a fantastic goody bag filled with great gifts and Forever coupons. You’ll also go home with access to a free month of training for Forever’s desktop software programs, provided by the wonderful pixels2Pages™ team. And don’t forget: you’ll leave with dozens of great new friends who share your love for family memories!
Learn from the Best
You'll have the chance to learn from one of the Pixies of pixels2Pages, the preferred trainers for Artisan and Historian software. They have the tools to unleash your creativity and equip you with the knowledge needed to create treasured keepsakes.
Most events also include the option to learn from pro photographer Nick Kelsh!
Click with Nick Photo Sessions
Every Click with Nick Photo Session is different and spontaneous, but we initially do a quick review of manual settings (sound familiar?) and then it's off into the real world to see what we can see—and there's a lot.
Creating Great Lighting
Lighting can make or break a photo. We can talk though bounce flash, reflectors, white balance and more.
Settings and Equipment
Learn how to adjust settings, when to use a tripod, and more. Take command of your own camera!
Directing Photo Subjects
Family members, squirmy kids... knowing how to direct people will help you set up great shots.
