Designed for boys 14-17yrs

and their fathers or a male mentor.

Prepare your son for adulthood

As he approaches young adulthood you will be called upon to shift and redefine your relationship with your son.

The Making of Men camp has been crafted over 25 years to provide the ideal environment for you both to join a community of other fathers, mentors and family members all experiencing these challenges together.

Take a moment to hear about the experiences of previous participants and how it transformed their lives and relationships


This is a life changing experience and one of the best things you could do for your boy at this critical time in his development.

The camp is focused on bringing out the best in your boy and addresses the physical, emotional and psychological changes happening in your boy’s life in a safe and structured way.

The Making Men Camp is a contemporary Rites of Passage program based on years of research and experience developed by a team including Dr Arne Rubinstein, author of The Making of Men.

Over the 5-day camp your boy will participate in activities and learns skills that will…

  • Build stronger father son relationships
  • Develop more confident communication and social skills
  • Gain higher levels of respect for mothers and women to support future healthy relationships
  • Increase confidence and self-esteem
  • Gain skills, tools and experience to become a motivated, responsible and resilient young man

One of the most beneficial aspects of our camps is taking the time to get your son to think about his future and what he wants to do with his life. It gives him an opportunity to think about what childhood behaviours he is ready to let go of as he moves into manhood.
