Whether you are a dad or a teenager, living life as a family in our fast-paced, “plugged-in” culture is not always an easy task. Constant busyness and a tremendous volume of messaging from outside influences can easily sidetrack us from deep relationships, both in our walk as Christians and in our relationships with our family.
Sometimes we need to unplug from our daily routine and spend some time in a different and challenging environment both to deepen relationships between dads and teenage sons or daughters and to help facilitate the important transition from teenager to grown men and women.
Father Teen Adventure is a unique program that was developed to help dads and teens meet this need. In addition to all of that, it is designed to be the most fun that you will ever have in the outdoors!
Father Teen Adventure, a ministry of Officers’ Christian Fellowship, is specifically designed for fathers to build, repair, or re-establish solid, biblical relationships with their teenage children. It takes place at OCF’s Spring Canyon Conference Center in Buena Vista, Colorado. FTA partners with Noah’s Ark on whitewater rafting adventures.
During FTA you will have a great adventure in one of the most beautiful settings in the American West while a senior mentor helps to guide you through a biblically based curriculum that imparts a vision for authentic manhood or womanhood that is reinforced by the fathers. Regardless of whether your relationship as father and son or father and daughter is as strong as ever or if the relationship could use some mending, FTA will be an experience that will have a positive and lasting impact on your relationship with Christ and with each other.
There are outdoor activities during the days with morning devotions and evening instruction periods for scriptural lessons. A dynamic curriculum taught by a mature Christian adult engages the teens as well as fathers, and is specially designed to promote discussion and reflection. Activities include team building, rock climbing and rappelling, optional activities like horseback riding or ATV’s, white water rafting, hot springs, and an overnight campout/cookout. The adventure atmosphere provides a unique setting for spiritual connection, and memories that will last a lifetime.
While at Spring Canyon, you’ll stay at Camp Buxton—a base camp in beautiful scenery located a few minutes’ walk from our main lodge. Eight-person cabins and large, metal-frame tents serve as sleeping quarters, and a fire pit radiates warmth for fellowship on the cool mountain nights—it’s the perfect setting to experience some of the best of God’s creation! And don’t worry, it also features a fully equipped bathhouse with facilities for men and women. Limited laundry facilities are also available.
On the overnight campout, you’ll stay warm and dry in our three-season backpacking tents and cold-weather sleeping bags, or bring your own gear if you prefer.
Your level of expertise in outdoor skills should not be a concern. Our experienced and talented guide staff will take care of the technical issues, while the staff of Spring Canyon Camp and Conference Center will make sure that your overall experience is top quality.
