OCTOBER 7-9 | 2022

Come join us for a weekend of becoming the warrior God has called you to be. You’ll enjoy recreation, shooting sports, and friendly competition. Most importantly, father and son will learn more about the Word of God, which is sharper than any two edge sword. Dads will have a chance to build their sons (ages 6-12) up through a weekend designed to engage the heart of a man.

Most sons are blown away by the fact that dad would
dedicate an entire weekend for them. Experience
this weekend on the battlefield once and it will easily
become an annual Rite of Passage for you and your son(s) to experience together.


We now have two different options to best fit your schedule!

    • The Full Three Day Father & Son Experience: Friday afternoon to Sunday morning: $189 (for one father and one son)
    • The Two Day Track: Saturday morning to Sunday morning: $125 (for one father and one son)

Both options include recreation, worship, teaching
times, exciting activities, meals and lodging. It’s only $35 for each additional son added for either option.

This event is designed for boys 6-12 years old to enjoy with their fathers or a similar father figure in their life.

This event doubled between 2019 and 2020. Register soon while spots are still available!

The Truett Tradition

At Truett we strongly believe in the power of camp. Boys get a chance to make new friends, experience new activities, grow closer to the King of Kings, and unplug from technology. They will spend time talking face to face with their fathers, having real interactions outdoors, and learning how to pursue God free of distraction. Truett is a sacred place for men to find adventure, focus, and learn to be the men God created them to be.
