Father-Son Retreat

  • Silver Birch Ranch N6120 Sawyer Lake Road White Lake, WI, 54491 United States (map)

This year take time out of your busy schedule to rekindle that special relationship with your father or son. Fathers and sons (3rd - 8th grade) will enjoy this encouraging weekend of top notch Biblical teaching and excellent worship times mixed with just the right amount of bonding activities and relaxing times.

Ride a horse in the national forest, trap shoot, jump off the Leap of Faith, or just go for a walk. Every part of the weekend is intentional with the hopes of giving fathers a chance to be an example to their sons, with words and actions, of what a Godly man looks like. Take advantage of this great opportunity for making lifelong memories and recharging your spiritual batteries.

Retreat Speaker - Pete Sutton

We are excited to have Rich Perik as our Father-Son speaker. Rich loves hunting, fishing. trapping, and learning more about God's creations in the woods. He and his wife. Dee, were missionaries for 35 years with tribal peoples in Paraguay. and for 2 years in Bo­livia with New Tribes Missions. He has seen God work

Pete is the student ministry lead pastor at Christ Community Church. He and his wife Jocelyn have seven children, have a passion for kids and strive to see their family and home as a ministry through foster care and adoption. They both have partnered with Silver Birch Ranch in so many ways and we cherish their friendship. Come with your son or dad this weekend and build some lifelong memories.
