Along with many others, Mike Haddorff had been influenced by the Robert Lewis video series “Mens Fraternity, Quest For Authentic Manhood”. In 2005 Mike and his oldest son Joel attended Christ in the Tetons, a father son adventure camp based on Robert’s teaching in his book “Raising A Modern Day Knight”. This experience dramatically influenced Mike. A teaming agreement with Christ in the Tetons was formed under the banner “Adventures for Life” and Christ in the Rockies (CITR) was born. To this day Mike attributes the genetics of CITR to Robert’s teaching regarding manhood and the raising of modern day knights. CITR has been hosting their “Passage to Manhood” camps since 2007.
CITR is a tax exempt organization governed by a board of directors and operated by it’s executive director. The focus is to provide a Christian based rites of passage for young men equipping them to live out an authentic and noble life. With dad present and within the context of other men this objective is accomplished through annual summer adventure camp offerings.
