What does it mean to be an Effective
Dad? Is it your effectiveness related to results or relationships? We are going to look at nuggets of fatherhood truth from the book, The Effective Father, by Gordan MacDonald. Dads, you will be encouraged by the teaching, fellowship, and prayer with other dads. Your daughters will think you are the "best" -- bringing them to camp! Camp is a great place to build memories together. Join us for a special weekend of girlie fun and daddy-tough activities.
: Friday, 6:00 PM with Dinner at Adventure Camp.
: Sunday, following lunch at 1:00 PM.
