Since 2011 Camp Rockmont has hosted Father/Son Weekends for sons ages 6 to 16 and their fathers. We’ve also had some grandfathers join the fun! These have been very successful, with great fun and special moments that strengthen the bond between fathers and sons. Everyone has a blast just being at camp, however the real gift for both fathers and sons has been the opportunity to spend time together.
Fall Dates: Sept 30 – Oct 2, 2016
Register today for Father/Son Weekend! Make sure to select Season 2017, even though it’s September/October 2016.
Favorites like blacksmithing, riflery, climbing, and archery are just some of the skills available. You will also be able to enjoy camp classics like disc golf, the Blob, the Gully Washer, canoes, and zip line. Fathers will also have time to discuss common themes in raising and developing godly young men.
Father/Son Weekend Handbook
Please note: This handbook provides an idea of what to expect during Father/Son Weekend. An updated handbook with the finalized program will be emailed to each Father/Son Weekend family a couple weeks prior to the event.
Weekend Tuition: $430 for 1 Father and 1 Son
Only $130 for each additional son or to bring your grandfather!
Are you ready for the next adventure with your son?!
The weekend will be full of your favorite camp skills and activities (see list below), as well as discussions on rites of passage, initiations, and giving blessings. We hope you can join us for this unforgettable weekend.
Participants have the opportunity to add an optional Adventure Trip to their weekend. We have Whitewater Rafting (ages 8 & up), Rock Climbing (ages 9 & up), and Mountain Biking (ages 9 & up) trips to choose from for Friday.
