The Dangerous Dads Camp is back!

It is really important for every young boy to spend quality time with their Father or significant male mentor. The Dangerous Dads Camp is a perfect opportunity for fathers and sons to connect and get away from the normal distractions and stresses of day-to-day life. 

This camp is on February 29 to March 1 and is open to Year 4, 5 & 6 boys and their Fathers or significant male carers. The camp will be held in Kiama Public School and is open to everyone. But if you feel this is something that your child’s school might be interested in please contact us by phone or email.

Book Now

Held in our very own Kiama Public School, you will enjoy fun and adventure, whilst also participating in professionally facilitated activities. The program is specifically designed to create supportive connections between dads and kids and to help build stronger communities where fathers and male carers have the chance to become the best dads in the world for their children.

What do you get?

The aim is help kids feel secure, connected to family, and valued in a way that has a direct and positive impact on their wellbeing. The program is designed by an expert in Educational Psychology, Emotional Intelligence and Adolescent Brain Development.

The Overnight Camp costs $250 for both of you, and includes food and professionally facilitated activities (BYO tent and sleeping gear).

The specific outcomes include:

  • Parents increase child development skills and knowledge;
  • Parents experience a strong emotional attachment to their child through fun activities;
  • The program provides an opportunity for parents to connect with other parents in the context of child development and wellbeing;
  • Parents learn and implement a number of key parenting strategies given in the program.

It’s a really fun and engaging program that builds relationships between parents and kids, as well as helping to develop a strong community of parental support.

As your son approaches his teenage years it’s crucial that you are able to communicate and understand what he needs at this stage in his life, and The Dangerous Dads camp is the perfect way to do this. 

Here’s what one of the teachers who was on our last camp had to say:

“In my 10 years of teaching, this was hands down the most important initiative I have ever been involved in…Inspirational!”

We also have a pay it forward option, so if you are feeling generous, or if you need some support to come on the camp, just get in touch and we’ll let you know what to do!
