WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
DADCAMP is a weekend experience that encourages, inspires, challenges, and equips Dads to become stronger fathers while simultaneously giving them an opportunity to strengthen their relationship with their kids. The weekend is full of fun activities, challenging sessions, music and a few surprises. It begins on Friday evening and ends on Sunday around noon.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
A week or two before DADCAMP, you will receive a welcome letter that includes a full packing list. Your registration includes a big Friday snack, three meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. Feel free to bring your own snacks and beverages. You may also bring bikes and other outdoor recreational items.

WHERE DO WE SLEEP?
There are multiple sleeping options at DADCAMP . We have 5 16-bed cabins that are heated and cooled to sleep in or you can bring your own camping gear: RV's, tent trailers, tents etc. are all welcome! You will indicate on your registration form what form of sleeping arrangements you have chosen.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
We try to make the best of inclement weather. We will do our best to communicate with you how plans may change in advance of bad weather. In case of a weather-related cancellation, we will offer an alternative date and provide refunds if necessary.
CAN I ONLY COME FOR PART OF THE TIME?
No. One of the benefits of DADCAMP is the opportunity to get away from the rest of the world. We ask that no one come or go during the weekend of DADCAMP so that you can focus on your relationship with your child. Even if your child has a game or activity to attend, we confidently believe he or she will remember the weekend of DADCAMP far more than the game or activity that they may miss. It's just that memorable for all who attend.
IS THIS GOING TO BE LIKE CHURCH CAMP?
No. Although DADCAMP is a faith-based ministry and there are faith-based elements throughout the weekend, we've intentionally designed DADCAMP to be for every Dad—whether he be a person of faith or not. DADCAMP's main focus is to challenge Dads to grow as fathers and to give Dads a place to strengthen their relationship with their children.
WHAT IF I DON'T KNOW ANYONE THERE?
Don't worry! An additional focus of DADCAMP is to help Dads connect with other Dads. Every year new friendships are formed that last well beyond the weekend of camp.
