Fathers and Sons need adventures together to strengthen their relationship and give them stories to reflect on in the years ahead. Kidder Creek’s amazing natural environment is the setting for this awesome camp that includes all the best camp has to offer. Be challenged through intentional time together doing high ropes courses, whitewater rafting, archery, riding horses, swimming in cold mountain water, jumping off tall stuff and digging into the Bible together. Worship and dessert around the campfire will top off each memorable day. If you want memories and stories to last a lifetime sign up for adventure camp now.
