What to Expect
- Great food
- Fun competitions
- An inspiring and practical message
- To have one of the greatest moments of your adult life, “The Affirmation”
- For you and the boys you bring to have a weekend you won’t soon forget
What is "The Affirmation"?
Manly Camp culminates on Sunday morning when each man stands up and, one-by-one, tells the others why each boy he brought is going to make a great man. This public affirmation is incredibly powerful and difficult to duplicate elsewhere.
Optional Start to the Weekend: Bike and Paddle Downtown Pittsburgh
Description: Pittsburgh offers great opportunities to experience the city through biking and kayaking. On Friday, August 3, the plan would be to bike the Three Rivers Heritage Trail from the North Shore down to the Southside works and back. We would grab lunch at a restaurant along the way, and then wrap up the day with kayaking on the river near PNC Park. We will plan to arrive at Pine Valley between 5-6pm in time for registration.
Biking: Free if you bring your own bike. Rent a bike from Bicycle Heaven which is near our start point on the North Shore for $8 per hour or $49 per day. You can also download the “Next Bike” app and rent a bike from Healthy Ride Bike share stations located on the North Shore for $2 per 30 minutes.
Kayaking: solo Kayak for $16 per hour or tandem Kayak for $21.50 per hour.
Duration: estimate is 7-8 miles on the bike, timing TBD. Assume 1 hour on river and 1.5 hours for lunch. We will be complete in plenty of time to make it back up to Pine Valley for registration.
Logistics: If you never did this before and always wanted to, this is the perfect time to go with some folks who are familiar with the trails, where to park, etc. If you did this before, you know how fun this is and it’s a good opportunity for some of the fathers and sons to connect prior to the start of the weekend. If you are interested in attending, please sign up at www.manlycamp.com and you will be contacted by the activity leader prior to the trip.
