Father Son Retreat 2018

This retreat is the perfect way to connect as father and son, and we take care of the details from start to finish. You can expect solid biblical preaching, powerful worship music, six of the most delicious meals you will ever have at a camp, so many activities you will not be able to do them all, and of course time to bond as father and son.

Need a better feel for what our Father-Son Retreat is all about? Just watch the video below. We’ll see you soon!

Theme – TRIBE

On the show Survivor, the goal is to outwit, outplay and outlast the other contestants, including your “tribe.” In order to do so, you deceive, manipulate and conspire against the other members of your tribe. Is that really how life is supposed to work? Is that really how God designed us to live? No!

Join us for Tribe – Jenness Park‘s Father/Son Retreat 2018! Our goal as Christians is to live the life God desires for each believer, and that includes living in community with others. This life requires us to live by faith, share in the victory Christ accomplished on the cross and overcome the world. Our goal is to be part of a Tribe of believers, by thriving in our relationship with Christ, sharing what He has done in our lives and bringing as many along with us as we can. What better place to begin strengthening our Tribe than in the home?!


We had such an awesome turnout last year that we decided to include the bonus day again. For only $60 person person you will get an entire extra night and day, 3 more delicious all-you-can-eat meals starting with dinner on Thursday, an evening snack, additional programmed activities and a father/son hike. Just click the box on the registration form that says, “I would like to come early for the bonus day.”

JP Obstacle Run

In case you have not heard, at the Jenness Park Father-Son Retreat we have an Obstacle Course Run. This is for fathers and sons to run/walk through challenging obstacles. The course is close to two miles and you will get muddy and wet, so make sure to bring an extra pair of shoes and clothes you don’t mind getting filthy! Check out this video!
