Coming of age can be a very exciting time for boys, but also potentially the most dangerous and confusing time of their young life.


Besides dramatic physical and psychological changes, fatherlessness, gendered expectations, and peer pressure (to mention a few) have powerful and painful repercussions for our sons.


It's common that a โ€œpurpose voidโ€ is caused when boys lack a sense of meaning in their lives. Yet, despite the negative repercussions, this may cause them, many boys are still being held to old-fashioned and outdated ideals of masculinity and manhood.

โœ… Our influence on our boys diminishes quickly after our kids are 12 years old so,


โ“How can support them during these teenage years?


๐Ÿ’™ Understanding and accepting the reality of the struggle is key to maintaining connection, and cooperation, as they come of age while learning age-appropriate skills, is essential.

๐Ÿšจ If they donโ€™t have this kind of positive guidance and clear direction to develop a healthy vision of their new role as a young man, they may never grow out of their boyish behavior. In some cases, itโ€™s even possible they could succumb to negative influences that can lead to withdrawal from family and school, aggression, addiction, and mental health issues.๐Ÿšจ


And so, their coming of age provides an opportunity for them to understand who they are becoming, how they plan to live their lives, how they might contribute to society, and what kind of person they want to be in relation to others around them. In this context, this is what we're doing.


๐Ÿ’ŽWe've created an immersive experience where boys come together to have fun, and adventure and share stories and experiences. A weekend retreat guided by exceptional mentors.
