A Weekend Adventure for Fathers and Sons

This weekend experience is designed to allow fathers and sons to get away, strengthen relationships with each other and the Lord, and create lasting memories together. Packed with adventurous activities, challenging teamwork exercises, and heart-stirring worship sessions, this retreat is one you'll want to make an annual tradition in your family! Activities are designed for boys age 6 and up, and grandfathers and uncles are welcome!


A father's most important task is to teach his children to love, worship, and serve Jesus Christ. He must let his life be an example of authentic faith, modeling what it means to seek after the things of Jesus and to live according to the ways of His kingdom. He must be intentional about discipling his children, seeking opportunities to pour into their lives and to pass on his knowledge of Jesus.

HLC's Father and Son Retreat is designed and structured to create a meaningful shared experience for you and your son(s).  We are confident that this concentrated time spent together will help redefine your relationship and strengthen your family. We'll enjoy times of worship and messages from God's Word led by David Crain, and adventure activities led by the HLC Recreation team!

Available activities may include: archery, riflery, shore-line fishing, climbing wall, zip line, flying squirrel, and more! Activities are age appropriate and not all activities are offered for all ages.
