Based in Australia, Fathering Adventures, founded by Darren Lewis back in July 2008, is an adventure-based initiative devoted to turning the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Their vision is to to provide an enjoyable, exciting, adventure-filled environment for a father to succeed, be inspired, equipped, and empowered, to really connect, or perhaps reconnect with their child. A life-giving, life-changing experience that promises to provide moments that will create powerful memories to last a lifetime, and opportunities to fill a photo album.
A summary of the adventure packagess offered through Fathering Adventures are:
2-Night Father-Son Adventures:
For boys aged between 7 and 13 years, and their Dad, or significant male other. This is a significant, affordable opportunity to answer a boy’s core question… “Do you love me? Do you delight in me? Am I your beloved son? Am I the apple of your eye?”
They provide a safe environment on stunning Magnetic Island, with a well-balanced combination of group activities, and intentional one-on-one time to better explore your relationship, and all that Magnetic Island has to offer. Remember, a child spells LOVE "T-I-M-E".
Throughout the weekend, Dads will also receive some basic coaching on what it means to be an “intentional” Dad. You will be armed with all of the tools you need to ensure your son knows that he is your “beloved son”.
5-Night Father-Son Adventures:
For boys, young men, and mature-age men aged between 13 and 70 years, and their Dad, or significant male other.
In the contrast of both reef and rainforest, a typical day features an exceptional full-day, professionally-guided outdoor adventure/activity e.g. white-water rafting down the Tully River, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, dual sea kayaking between Mission Beach and Dunk Island, and hiking to the summit of Mount Tyson.
Rest assured men, the outdoor adventures / activities selected cater for all fitness levels. A typical evening features a multimedia presentation and small group interaction on topics such as “Authentic Manhood versus Conventional Manhood”, and “The Four Marks of a Real Man”, followed by time relaxing around the fire sharing stories of the day’s adventures.
