Light of the World


In this session, the boys will kick off the season with fun team-building activities. They learn about what it means to be the light of the world & the light of the city. They build human light-towers with toilet paper, they play the 'stick' game as a team, and build blind identical towers using only verbal cues. They prepare prophetic thank-you notes for city leaders and session sponsors, and receive a challenge for the session ahead.

Solving Real-World Problems


In this session, the boys dress up in business casual outfits and get a special tour of the Redding City hall to see how the city solves problems. Then they visit the Redding Police Station and get a look behind the scenes there. They prepare questions for a sit-down with a city leader, learn to make strong & powerful introductions, and spend time working alongside the city leader to solve a real-world problem.

Caldwell Olympics


In this session, 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!

Creativity Challenge


In this session, the team must use their creativity to solve problems out in nature. We will have a team rope walk and face other 'unexpected challenges' and work as a team to solve them, encouraging one another at every turn. 

River Trekking Against the Stream


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.

Hope for the Least


In this session, the boys put their faith in action by minsitering to the homeless. In this "Hope for the Least" session, the boys each fundraise $10 to buy gifts for the guests at the mission or people in camps. Then we take them on a tour of the Good News Rescue mission and then lead them out two-by-two to pray and minister to people.

Serving With Love


In this session, the boys must decide how to use a gift card to Trader Joes as a team, shop on a budget, prepare a meal on their own, and host the parents at pickup, all within three hours! 

Rewarder of Faith


In this session, the boys get a once-in-a-lifetime tour of a helicopter airport & learn about how teams work together to get the chopper in the air. They play games & do activities, and ride in copters!

Building With God


In these two back-to-back sessions, the boys partner with Haven Humane Society & the Home Depot to build hog-houses & cat-condos as a team. They 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 the Home Depot Foundation.
