We're not here to teach you how to be a good son, daughter or father. We're here to provide shared adventure, and cause you to reflect and review your relationship, maybe you'll get inspired while you do it!
So join us as we build fires, shelters and memories. Journey over the mountain, and into deeper connection. Learn new wilderness survival skills, and, skills for walking your teen into adulthood. Gather tools for seeking truth and authentic faith, and do it in the Kiwi hills!
By definition, an adventure is a journey with an unknown outcome, so expect to arrive without all the answers but with a readiness to get muddy, get personal and take on a challenge, side-by-side with your teen. The road to adulthood is unknown, the future has an endless number of possibilities, careers will change and goals will shift, but you'll always be father and son or father and daughter, and that, is worth doing well!
You will need to sign up at least 3 weeks before the event in order to complete your preparation tasks which will be explained to you after you sign up. We want you to arrive ready to lead your teen, which requires a bit of intentionality.
This is not an XCC, we're not testing your physical strength or mental grit, but, it's also not soft and fluffy! There's no luxury accommodation or big-screen movie nights, there's a wild, but accessible feel to the Father Challenge that you may have never shared before.
