Youth Alive Trust ran its 5th annual Father Son Camp recently, taking 14 dad’s and their intermediate aged son away to the Canterbury High Country for a time of bonding, adventure, activities and food. The weekend was a mixture of outdoor activities such as exploring and bouldering at Castle Hill, Kayaking, archery and swimming at Lake Lyndon. They also ran sessions key to the father son relationship like communication skills and how to have difficult conversations. When asked for feedback one dad responded with “My favourite thing about camp was spending time with my son and the range of planned activities and sessions to help us bond and get a deeper understanding of each other.” Another dad said “It was great to hear all the dads worry about the same things. lol .” And one of the Boys mentioned that “Camp helped me understand a little better what being a dad is like.” Stay tuned for a Father Son Camp for Teens coming soon…
