Father/Son Challenge

September 6-8, 2024

A father-son weekend retreat for fathers & sons ages 7 and up

$260 per person

Pack your bags and escape to Doe River Gorge for an adventurous, memory-making weekend! Fathers and sons will brave  challenges, have fun, and form new friendships. Most of all, you will bond and make memories that you’ll cherish for years to come.

Rappel together down a rock face, tackle a challenge course, go horseback riding, play paintball, race each other down the 700-foot water-landing ziplines, or leap together from the top of a 30-foot pole and try to catch a trapeze bar…and that’s just the beginning! The weekend will be filled with surprise events, worship, engaging speakers, and time in God’s Word—all designed to help you build and strengthen the father/son relationship.
