Youth workers, we invite you and your young men to take the ManHood challenge and join this Rites-Of-Passage journey.
ManHood Camp is an event designed for youth workers to bring their high school & middle school guys to gain practical wisdom, inspiration and tools for becoming the men God created them to BE.

– THE DAPPER GENTLEMAN:
When it comes to interviews and making a first impression it takes skill to dress to impress. In this skillshop, you’ll learn how to tie a necktie, dress for an interview and make a first impression.
– GET FIT CHALLENGE
Box jumps, getting swole and eating clean, are you about that life? It’s impressive to see professional athletes do amazing physical feats, but every pro needs to master the basics. Come out to test your fitness and learn the fundamentals of getting fit.
What is Manhood Camp? Young men will be challenged to overcome the pain of their father-wound and to dare to allow God to re-write their future. We envision young men learning the core competencies for becoming leaders worth following, men of integrity, discipline and purity and one day…loving & faithful husbands and dads!
Who’s Invited? Urban Young Men (High School & Middle School) along with male youth workers, mentors and dads. Please be aware that ManHood Camp will involve some mature conversations about topics that young men face growing up. It is best suited for high school students and mature middle schoolers. We rely on the youth leaders and dads to evaluate the maturity of the middle schoolers.
