Program Details

Program Overview

SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING | Sessions in this program, as in all our programs, are designed to help boys grow in their practical use & application of social/emotional tools, like powerful communication, boundary setting, expressing needs, encouraging others through empathy, and more.


STEAM LEARNING | This program specifically emphasizes S.T.E.A.M. learning and teamwork. The boys engage in activities & challenges that require them to use science, technology, engineering, art, and math to solve problems. They will grow in skills such as time & money management, decision making as a team, delegation, and basic building skills.

HOLY SPIRIT | All of the work we do with the boys is also done in partnership with the Holy Spirit. Each session theme, challenge, and activity is geared toward making biblical principles and stories come to life in the real-world, showing the boys that they are the light of the world, helping to grow their faith, and teaching them actively to hear the voice of God for day-to-day things.

SESSION STRUCTURE | We will be running all over town in our van to complete the tasks at hand. Some sessions have multiple stops, others have a single location. ** We ask that everyone please be early to sessions, as we also commit to getting your boys back on time. **


A team captain will be assigned at each session and this boy will be in charge of helping the leaders with special tasks, helping the team make decisions, representing the team upon arrival at locations, and making a video recap for the team. 

It's our goal that by the end of the season the boys feel powerful sharing their voice & creativity in a team environment, that they know they can make a difference in the world around them, and learn to enjoy problem solving with others in the face of challenges.

10 SESSIONS, 3HOURS EACH | The cost will stay the same as Summit Seekers: $440 Season Pass, $225 two payments, $155 three payments.

We're going for the gold at our very own 'Caldwell Park Olympics.' Sports stations will be set up around the park and the boys will compete against each other in every kind of activity, from basketball to soccer to, sumo wrestling, Kubb, and more!

River Trekking

In this session, the boys gear up in water-treading pants and feet slips and walk upstream to a spot where inner tubes are waiting for them. They learn how they are chosen & set apart to be God's, and this often feels like walking against the stream of the world. At the end they tube all the way back down the river. 

Building a Home

In these sessions, the boys partner with Haven Humane Society & the Home Depot to build hog-houses & cat-condos as a team. They will get expert building mentorship from Team Depot and get a tour of the rescue animals at Haven Humane. This session is made possible thanks to a very generous grant from Home Depot's Team Depot.
