The father and son retreat for building godly men.

Friday, May 17, 2019 | 5pm — Saturday, May 18, 2019 | 5pm

Country Lake Retreat Center


Are you ready?


I have four words for you: Dads. Sons. Fire. Zipline. Wait, is zipline two words? Forget it. Focus! Are you looking to connect with your son, dig into the Word, and maybe grab a zip line? Join us as we connect fathers and sons over a fire, well, not “over” a fire—how about beside a fire, a lake, a ropes course and hiking trails. The question isn’t how to spell zip line. The question is: are you ready?


This is what you’ll learn:


  • Skills to connect with your son
  • How to help your son resist the pull of this world
  • How to get your son to open up and talk to you
  • How to gain your wife’s undying devotion and respect
  • Tips and tools for driving meaningful conversations

FAQs



What’s the target age range for boys?
The target range for boys attending Project: MANHOOD could range from 8 to 18 years old, we’re flexible. Just consider the activities the retreat center offers, and go from there.

Can I bring more than one boy?
Yes, you can! Do you have more than one son? Do you have a nephew or neighbor you’re discipling? Perfect! Bring him along! There are some extra costs per boy. So pay close attention when you’re registering. For example, there’s a maximum of four (4) guys to a room if you choose the Lodge option.

I attended last year, should I attend this year?
I have a question for you. How many memorable camping retreats have you been on with your son since last May? If you’re answer is 52. Then, whatever, the answer is still yes. This is an epic time for you to connect with your son(s). This year, I encourage you to bring a friend.


What are the activities and how much do they cost?
There’s a bunch of activities you can do during the retreat. From fishing to paintball to ziplining to hiking. Then there’s a personal favorite of Ryan’s called “reading a book in a rocking chair.” All activities are included in your registration price.

Will food and snacks be provided?
Yes, all meals and snacks are included at this event. You won’t go hungry. We promise!

What if my family has allergies to certain foods?
Special diets can be accommodated. Please be sure to specify any allergies when you register.
