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 to evaluate the maturity of the students.
