2018 Father/Son Retreat

Join us for this special weekend just for men and boys!  October 5-7, 2018 will be the dates of our retreat this year.  This weekend will include four chapel sessions, five delicious hot meals and a weekend full of exciting activities for all who attend.  We'll be offering Boating and Fishing down at the pond, Trap Shooting, Archery, Shooting Gallery (bb guns and slingshots), Hiking, Go Karts, Gun Range (for all calibers), Mini Golf, Father/Son Softball and so much more! We'd love for you to attend this weekend focused on building strong relationships between dads and sons as we receive instruction from God's Word!

The retreat begins Friday evening with registration opening at 5 PM and supper beginning at 7 PM.  Friday night will also include a chapel session and S'mores near your cabins.  Saturday morning usually starts with coffee available at the dining hall for early risers.  The morning officially kicks off with a hearty breakfast followed by a chapel session.  The morning concludes with some special father/son activities.  Lunch is served, then we dismiss for afternoon free time.  During this time you pick your own schedule of activities from those offered over the weekend.  Maybe you'd like to head out on a hike, go fishing, test your marksmanship or just go fly a kite.  Following that free time we gather around the table once again for supper.  Saturday ends with chapel, some evening free time and a praise and testimony campfire!  Get some good rest on Saturday night because Sunday morning will be time for Breakfast, Chapel and a ride home.
