Benefits to the Camper: opportunity for fathers to pass on their values and lessons learned to help guide their young people in the way they should go; Bible studies in passages that give helpful biblical principles; adventures and memories of a lifetime; different than anything fathers and teens normally do together; no interruptions—no need for phones, computers, or pagers; limited to twelve pairs; fathers and sons explore, travel, and experience places that few people have seen

 

Benefits to the Church: the men in your church should be the leaders in their families, church, and community; training teens to be people of faith is investing in your church’s future.

 

Highlights (Father-Son): Dutch-oven cooking and mouth-watering barbecue; traversing the open high desert and exploring abandoned gold mines and the historic Mojave Trail
