YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE IT. Kids thrive off adventure and challenges. Even more so, they love when their dads get ‘dirty’ with them. Your kids get to see you in a new way, free from the daily grind, happy, engaged and having a blast.

YOU WILL LOVE IT. Remember what it was like to have that sense of adventure when you were younger, that sense of aliveness, excitement and challenge.

YOUR IMPACT ON YOUR KIDS. We know that the more fathers turn up for their kids, meaning the more engaged, empathic and consistent they are, the better developmental, educational and health outcomes our kids experience. That means dad’s you have a unique impact on your kids’ life.

DISCOVER THE THRILL OF ADVENTURE TOGETHER. It is easy to let other things get in the road of spending quality time with your kids. They grow up quick, and soon they will leave and you missed the opportunity.

THE CONVERSATION will provide fathers with new perspectives, knowledge and skills to connect with his son, and support his son transition through developmental milestones in childhood, adolescence and young adulthood.

Think about it this way

 Fathering is like a perfect beverage, the perfect ingredients (science) are blended through experience (craft) to create a depth and richness of flavors that is best when its chilled (dads are always better when they are cool and calm). Our programs are the same, a perfect blend of science (discussions), craft (putting it into practice through adventure) and fun.

The weekend includes

The weekend includes:
 
  • Night time laser Skirmish
  • Surf lessons (beginner to intermediate)
  • Sea kayak or SUP
  • Challenge initiatives
  • Free time (we are under a 5min walk to the beach)

WHY THIS WEEKEND MATTERS. Because dad’s matter. Your relationship with your kids is the foundation of their development, health and success later in life. There is no way around it, the way you engage with your kids, how you interact with them and your skills as a dad have a huge impact.  

THE MESSY CRAFT OF FATHERING. We get it… It is a little bit messy; our kids did not come with a handbook, we sometimes don’t really know what to do but hey, credit to most dad’s we do our best. Clayton will present informative and engaging discussions about all things fathering. Including topics covering how to build a better relationship with your kids, better awareness of how to engage, communicate, resolve conflict and set appropriate boundaries and more confidence in your ability to contribute positively to the family culture, and your kids future.

SO WHAT YOU GET is a fun, adventures weekend with heaps of cool things to do PLUS essentially ‘a how to’ build a positive impact in your kids life.

YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE IT. Kids thrive off adventure and challenges. Even more so, they love when their dads get ‘dirty’ with them. Your kids get to see you in a new way, free from the daily grind, happy, engaged and having a blast.
