Helping Our Boys become Men of Character & Integrity

Who is this for?

For fathers and sons ages 7 to 12. It teaches boys to become men of character. They learn to overcome difficulties, to stick to a task until it is finished, to respect others, to aspire to higher ideals. For the fathers, the club provides tools to help them educate their sons to be this sort of man.

Why do we do it?

For the Boys- To begin thinking what kind of men they want to be when they grow up. To learn about some fundamental virtues and how they can live them. To engage in fun yet manly activities where they can develop their character. To become friends with other boys who are developing their character.

For the Fathers- To have a chance to be with their sons in a fun atmosphere. To better understand and articulate the virtues and see how they can help their sons acquire them. To have more occasions for the conversations they want to have with their sons about deeper subjects.
