Growing Good Men is an experientially based program that encourages and enables fathers and sons to strengthen their relationship and to explore important issues of growing into manhood. It is designed for fathers or significant male role models and their teenaged boys aged 12–16 years.

Set over a weekend, the program involves short keynote sessions, small group and father–son sharing, a wide range of challenging and engaging activities (which may include a high ropes course, flying fox or similar adventure activities), reflection and prayer. The centrepiece of the program is a rite of passage on Saturday night. The weekend concludes with a fathers' blessing and commissioning.

Cost: $200 per person (including 2 nights' accommodation, all meals and activities).

Growing Good Men is a joint initiative of CYC and Men Alive. Find out more.
