9th Grade Spring Campout - Bushwhacking

     This campout is all about opening the channel of communication between the dad and son on relationships. We start by spending Saturday in the Wichita Wildlife Refuge Mountains with the sons, compass in hand, leading their dads to a peak, making their own path. The only instruction for the day is, get us to the peak and back before dark. Many boys come away saying, “All my life I’ve been told what path to take, and this is the first time I’ve been allowed to find my own way and make my own path… what an experience!” The theme of this weekend is, “Finding Your Own Path” in relationships using resources that are available to you just like having a compass and map when you are hiking. Sunday morning, the dads and sons have an opportunity to start talking about what relationships mean and how to navigate through them.
