Join us for this live online event to experience a taste of what we do on our father/son retreat, get to know the facilitators, ask questions, and learn more about our summer program Showing Up for Our Sons: A Retreat for Fathers and Sons in the Middle School Years, Ages 10-12.
Of all the wonderful retreats we host for men, our father/son camping trip has a special place in our hearts.
There’s a sweet spot in that age from 10 to 12 when the little boy is gone but the young man hasn’t yet emerged. These boys are curious, a little bit nervous, and usually excited for what is just around the corner in their lives.
Now is the time, perhaps more than any other, when they need to know their fathers have their backs. They need to hear his stories of growing up, reaching maturity, and the struggles it took to get there. They need to see other fathers and their sons together in circle, cooking meals, playing games and sitting around the fire at night.
This kind of connection is comforting to the soul of a boy not quite a man. We believe it sets that boy on a track to healthy manhood, respect for himself and others, and a future filled with promise. Fathers tell us this retreat was life changing for them and their sons. That truly warms our hearts, and makes us want to carry on.
This summer we will offer this retreat twice – July 25-28, 2019 in Tennessee and August 8-11, 2019 in Colorado.
