Boys Under the Influence of Loving Dads is a retreat that enables fathers and sons (grades 1-12) to spend a weekend of fun, fellowship, and encouragement together in a beautiful lake setting.   Families have found this retreat to be both foundational and life changing in their relationships.  We host this retreat in April each year.

Each family will have the opportunity to spend some quality time together away from the busyness and distractions of everyday life.  There will be plenty of planned group activities but also time to fish, talk, play ball, canoe, or hike.

This weekend provides a combination of great Biblical teaching, inspiring worships, fellowship with other families, terrific food, and a host of recreational opportunities including a high ropes course with zip line, climbing wall, giant swing, archery, riflery, canoeing, basketball, field games, and fishing.  Other highlights of the weekend include a BBQ feast, game and movie night, campfire fellowship, and a massive father vs. son pin dodge game!

The cost of the weekend is $120 for adults and $110 for each child. This includes 2 nights, 5 meals, all program fees, and a T-shirt for each person.


Hey Guys,

Come gather with us for the 2020 BUILD RETREAT! We will be looking at the journey we all must make in life and where we each might be on that journey. Many have blazed trails for us to follow, but the best trail is the one found in Scripture, and it starts with Jesus. Looking forward to meeting you all and sharing in the excitement of this journey!
