Rules and Conditions

High Adventure Treks for Dads & Sons IS for dads and sons that want to learn:

  • To communicate with each other.
  • Outdoor skills involving canoeing, rock-climbing, mountain biking, and backpacking.
  • Lifelong skills in safety and first aid in dealing with those activities.
  • Meet other dads and sons that they will be in school with for the next 6 years.
  • How to form a relationship with each other that is based on doing things together.

The mission of HATS is to use all of these outdoor activities to put dads and sons into situations where they must talk to one another... learn to communicate... trust and respect each other... and work together as a team. These are skills that they will use for the rest of their lives!

In light of our mission goals, here are some things that on every adventure, HATS IS NOT:

  • We discourage bringing any type of electronic devises.
    (CD players, MP 3 players, i-pods, boom boxes, play stations, game boys, x box, lap tops and cell phones, except for emergencies.)We discourage the use of alcohol by the dad.

  • (High Adventure Treks for Dads & Sons is about putting dads and sons together to learn to communicate. It's hard to communication with alcohol involved. We feel that if you cannot go two days without a "drink," in order to be with your son; there is probably another organization better suited for you).

Finally, a simple rule: if the dad doesn't come, the son doesn't come, and vise versa. You give each other value by giving each other your time.
