Each summer CITR hosts our main events for fathers to welcome their sons into manhood. This five-day event is specifically designed to engage men in daily high adventure activities such as mountain biking and rock-climbing, thus reinforcing such qualities as courage, determination and humility. During the evenings, our instructors will share engaging lessons in what it means to be a man, inspiring sons and fathers to live out authentic, Christian manhood. Many of the topics covered in the teaching are illustrated with clips from popular, contemporary movies.
Throughout the week each father is given the opportunity to publicly bless his son. There is also time set aside for dad to share aspects of his own journey with his son. The camp culminates with a sacred and moving rite-of-passage ceremony where each father calls his son up into manhood in the presence of other like-minded men and welcomes him into the community of men.Register
