Modern Day Knight- Father/Son 6th grade campout

One of the many things future 6th grade boys look foward to is the Father/Son Camp out Ben has put together for them.  For some of these familes camping is a foreign concept and even worse they have never tasted a Smore :).  Ben uses the book Raising a Modern Day Knight as a guide when he meets with the fathers before the camp out.  Then our hope is that the fathers take these principles to connect at a deeper level with their boys and for them to challenge them to be men of virtue.
This year all of the fathers participated! One father in particular travels a lot and at the beginning of the school year when he heard of this outing asked Ben if he could plan it when he was in town so he could be with his son on this special outing.
