Once a year, for five days, the Rock Solid Refuge Family Camp brings together students and their families. This is a critical time for us. Through guest speakers, purposeful activity time, and nightly chapels, parents are directly challenged to intentionally pursue their sons with direct input and encouragement from the staff.

The students are challenged to put aside their reflexive defensiveness and examine with their parents the difficult issues and questions that still need to be resolved. This is a critical step in restoring relationships and restoring the young men to their homes.

No two people’s experiences of Family Camp are identical, but every single person, student, parent, or staff is impacted.

For some students, it’s a wake-up call for what thoughts or predispositions they haven’t been addressing. Others are surprised at their ability to talk candidly and compassionately with their parents.

Some parents realize how their body language changes around the son who wounded them deeply. Other parents find their hearts put at ease by their son’s change or by the additional tools they learn at camp and the realization that other parents are struggling with similar issues.

Continue to pray for these families as they take what they have learned during family camp and integrate it into their lives.
