Dads & Sons

Mission Springs is excited to host our 24th annual Dads & Sons Retreat at Frontier Ranch. This weekend is simply one of the best you will spend together all year long. We craft our program to allow ample time for dads and sons to connect in meaningful ways. Including several hands-on activities that foster personal and spiritual growth providing new challenges for all ages.

This fall retreat highlights many of the activities that Frontier Ranch has to offer. We have a mini-bike track, zip-line, rock wall, archery/slingshot range, a slip-n-slide, and a high ropes course, plus so much more! This weekend is a great way for you and your son(s) to experience camp together. Frontier Ranch is the same place we host our week-long summer camps. You can either make memories here before they come to summer camp for the first time or have your son(s) show you around so you have a better understanding of why Frontier Ranch is so special to them.

Registration opens on November 1st. Specific event details will be coming soon! Stay connected with us on Facebook or Instagram for updates.

  • Testimonials: What Dads Say

    “Thanks for another great weekend. Really enjoyed it. The speaker and music were a primary reason for my very favorable feedback, I plan to invite friends who may not be regular church attenders. Hopefully, this will be something that could spurn conversations.”

    “I really like the speaker, it was deep enough for dads to get something out of it but still something the boys could get a hold of.”

    “It was great to see so many more dads and sons there! Even though there were more people, everything went smoothly and nothing was over crowded. I can’t think of anything I would want to see changed for next year. It really was a wonderful weekend.”
