60 FRG Event Ideas

Updated: Mar 14

Calling all of my fellow military families! I’m back with more information on the Family Readiness Group. In this post I have listed FRG event ideas. Some are family friendly, but some are better if childcare is involved.

Moms’ day out is important for fellowship without distractions. Adults need friends too!! I’ve compiled 60 event ideas for you to suggest to leadership. If you are wondering what in the world I’m talking about, then refer to my other post where I explain what an FRG is and why they are so important!
