2017 Retreat video - COMING SOON

Father-Son Challenge 2017 was a great time for 131 dads and sons to bond, laugh, be refreshed, and have a great time together. Building a Kubb game was the weekend project. Actor/Entertainer Curt Cloninger challenged how God is viewed and how He views and relates to us. The beautiful outdoor setting was a perfect backdrop for all sorts of "together stuff"... Skeet shooting, Unimog and horseback rides, canopy ziplines, Via Ferrata, Burma bridge, rappelling, swimming, paintball, archery, riflery, hiking, fishing, train rides, climbing tower, and eating! An unforgettable weekend!

Quotes:

"Do you feel like you are failing as a father or you need to just reunite the father/son relationship? Come, experience a life-changing weekend that will change your father/son relationship forever." – Joseph, dad, Tennessee

"This is the best family vacation I’ve ever had!" – Christian, son, South Carolina

"Doe River Gorge is a place where you can escape the daily pressures of life and grow closer to your son and to God." – David, dad, Tennessee

"I learned how much my Dad loves me." – Nate, son, North Carolina

"My son was 9 years old on our first Father/Son Challenge. Now he has become a man any father would be proud of, and I can say that our visits to Doe River Gorge have been an integral part of our relationship, my training as a father, and his formation as a Christian." - Digby, father, Kentucky
