What are guys saying about Manly Camp?
“Zachary and I have been coming to Manly Camp for 11 years and it is a wonderful experience. We look forward to it all year long and it is a time for us to bond and for me to remind him what an awesome young man he is becoming. Many of his classmates and their dads come and we have a great time together.”
“From age 5-18 my boys have always loved Manly Camp. It has been a special weekend for many years for both them and other boys that have come along with us without their fathers. My father, who is now in his 70’s, has been a regular attender and loves the weekend.”
“Manly Camp has quickly become a tradition with my boys that they anticipate every summer. They LOVE it. As a dad I appreciate the different age groups in our boys from preschool to college.”
What is Manly Camp?
Manly Camp is a weekend where we, as fathers and mentors, “build up the next generation of men.”
Bring your sons, nephews, neighbor boys, or any other young man in whose life you’re investing time (ages 5-22+).

What is "The Affirmation"?
Manly Camp culminates on Sunday morning when each Dad stands up and, one-by-one, tells the others why his son(s) is going to make a great man. This public affirmation is incredibly powerful and difficult to duplicate elsewhere. Boys who are 13 and older are given the opportunity to say something about their Dad if they choose to do so.
