Our Story

History of retreats

In 2009 I teamed up with Brian Cheyne, who had been running fatherhood retreats aimed at pre-adolescents since 1984. He mentored me and we jointly ran the weekends until his retirement in 2011. My wife Karen and I, with the help of professional facilitators, have been running the weekends ever since.
We believe dads have a big role to play in raising children.
These weekends are aimed at helping fathers understand their role better. And since the dad shares stories of himself the children also understand him better. We want to help develop trusting relationships between dad and child which will set a platform for healthy and open communication during the teenage years. We believe that these retreats create memories that cannot be destroyed by moth or rust.
