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.”

Jeff Queen

“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.”

Craig Thompson

“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.”

John Beck

“I’ve been associated with Manly Camp and taken my son for almost ten years straight now. While it is important to spend time with your kids and affirm them as much as possible, nothing like Manly Camp frames how important and how impactful it really is, for both fathers and sons. God has a plan for raising our boys and hopefully my time with my son at Manly Camp has laid a strong foundation towards that plan.”

Jim Richardson

“The core purpose of this event — spending good, quality time with and publicly affirming our boys — is played out in a fun-packed weekend that everyone will remember and tell stories about for years to come. My boys and I eagerly look forward to it each year, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to attend this great weekend.”

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 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.
