Listen to what these Parents thought of their families’ experience on the Journey to Manhood Program…

The mothers component of the Journey to Manhood program is critical in the outstanding outcomes achieved. More than lip service to letting their sons grow up, the women are guided on a journey of their own that builds strong bonds and allows the male component of the program to really flourish.

Families are very busy places these days. There are tremendous benefits in taking time out from the busy-ness and investing quality, focused time with loved ones, especially for Fathers and their Teenage sons.

This is an experience that focuses on this often-challenging time for the entire family, the teenage years of adolescent boys. The entire family, Mums, Dads & the teenager himself are all experiencing this period differently. Here is a way of supporting the change for all in a meaningful, joyous and family-friendly way.

For boys aged 13-16yrs, this period is either fraught with danger or ripe for the harvesting – which will it be for you and your family!!

Have a listen to Jack and find out what he experienced with his son.

JOURNEY TO MANHOOD is a program that dives deeply into the real issues facing families with teenage boys today. Many families have benefited from the powerful experience of father and son spending 5 days in the bush with other men and boys (13-16 yrs). This is precious technology-free time to do something memorable for your family. Mothers are very much a part of this program too, at community departure and welcoming home ceremonies.

It is quite common for boys to attend with step-fathers, uncles, grandfathers or family friends & mentors.

The camp helped me to deepen my relationship with my son, explore my own manhood
and bring me into closer understanding with my wife. WOW! ~ Father

Time in the bush away from the many distractions in life provides an opportunity to look at what’s really important and from this place to deliver an unforgettable experience for all men and boys. Dad’s often comment on how the program has helped them with issues at work, with their relationship with their wife and also to get clear about some questions they have been struggling with.

Whilst the camp is 5 days, the program includes a parents evening a week or 2 prior to the camp as well as a Sunday afternoon reunion 2 weeks after the camp. This supports all family members to integrate the benefits of the program into their day to day lives. During this 3-4 week period we use 4 venues and 18 staff to co-ordinate this once in a lifetime experience. Young men passing through the program can then return on subsequent camps in support of the next group of families (plenty of dads do this too!). Young men stepping into their leadership and service to community regularly comment how much this experience has given them the confidence and the motivation to walk the pathway to healthy adulthood.

What can I say… it was one of the best experiences of my life. ~ Father

What this program is:

  • A unique opportunity for each boy to be challenged, honoured and supported to be the best he can be
  • A blessing for all boys to confidently set their sails for the calm and the rough seas that life will present them
  • A line in the sand that clearly denotes childhood and the freedom & responsibilities that come with adulthood
  • Door-openers to all the necessary conversations boys need to have with older men
  • A re-setting of intentions and commitments AND
  • The very necessary reshaping of relationships when moving from parenting a boy, to parenting a young man

What this program is not:

  • This is not just for boys at risk. This is for all boys whether struggling or doing well
  • Tree hugging naked dancing in the bush. Nature is a powerful ally and we keep it clothed and real!
  • Touchy, feely, weird and wafty. It is grounded and powerful, certainly different because it needs to be to effect such change!
  • Churchy or religious-based. There is no religious affiliation or bias. Families from all walks of life are very welcome.

ALL families benefit from this positive, powerful and unique experience. Journey to Manhood creates and acknowledges the boy-to-man shift ‘from dependence into service’ and enables families to build a new foundation for their future. This is a real-life game-changer!

My husband is more in touch with his emotions, respect and awareness of me is increased,
communication with our son is more positive and loving. ~ Mother

The benefit of doing this work within a school community greatly enhances the outcomes. Building a healthy and supportive ongoing circle of men around these boys gives them a strong container in which to make their necessary mistakes. Plus, mothers sharing the journey develop a unique bond with each other and this provides additional support for the whole family moving forwards.

I have an awareness of a need to let go, to let my son grow-up and take responsibility for himself. ~ Mother

There is an opportunity for you to bring this powerful work into your school, bringing great benefits to both families and the community in general. Consider the difference having numbers of students that have had a father-son experience that marks their transition from boy to young man. This deepens the father-son relationship so that the often tenuous journey into manhood is healthy and supported.

What I experienced on this camp is a sensation all boys should have to change into a young man.
Also, the camp is great for a relationship with your family. ~ Boy
