Father & Son Retreat Coming Up This Summer! 
Calling all fathers and sons (ages 8-13)! We are having a Father & Son retreat on Friday, August 23rd - Sunday, the 25th at Look Up Lodge near Traveler's Rest, SC. This is going to be an incredible time of fun and adventure, but more importantly, an experience to coach and encourage dads to be the spiritual leaders of their sons. This is more than just a weekend away - there will be studies before-hand with the fathers to prepare them for father/son interactions to happen well beyond the retreat. Cost is $119 per person, but in order to secure the event location, we need a deposit of $119 per father/son pair by May 17th. Sign up in the Welcome Center! If you have any questions, contact Chris at chris@brevardcommunity.org
