Retreat for fathers & sons (ages 9 & up)


This camp is a 2 night/3 day retreat that will give fathers and sons (ages 9 and up) the opportunity to refresh their relationship; learn principles from God’s Word on competition, self-esteem, and communication; and have fun together on the beautiful  grounds of Rock Eagle. The camp offers great coaching on the mats for the sons, while “the dads” learn to become better husbands and fathers.

Registration opens on Friday afternoon. Camp runs from Friday evening to 12pm on Sunday.
