Guided “Rite of Passage” 3 Full Day‎ Son and Father Adventure experience on the Gold Coast, in S-E QLD

Teenage boys struggle when they are not actively and adequately guided by their Dad or Father Figure, through their most challenging life transition – from boyhood to manhood.

And no good parent wants their son to struggle because he remains a boy.

Our guided “Rite of Passage” Son and Father Adventure experiences are a proven process that result in healthier relationships, a deeper understanding of one another, and new direction, into the future.

This is a significant and magnificently beneficial opportunity for sons aged 13 years and over – no maximum age limit, and their Dads or father figures to experience together.

Location: CYC Burleigh - 22 Rudd Street, Burleigh Heads, QLD, 4220
