Father & Son Camp for Older Guys

Program Description

For guys 12+ years old and their Dads

Take this step up. At his age, your son has crossed an important line into manhood. It’s important to treat him that way. We want to help you “grow a man” out of that son of yours who isn’t a kid anymore. At Northern Frontier, the role models he’ll see, the stories he’ll hear, and the things he’ll do, will be geared to his emerging manhood.

Bring your son for a snack after campfire. Stay up with him a little later with a few friends or a board game. Take advantage of the “Older Guys” activities, like .22 riflery and rock climbing on nearby cliffs.

You may choose to take a day away from camp fishing, mountain hiking (moderate or strenuous) or seeing an Adirondack attraction like the Adirondack Museum or The Wild Center.

However, if you would rather stay in camp, you can choose from activities like our zip line, our rock climbing wall, holy cow swing, rappelling, sailing, swimming, canoeing, fishing, ropes course, .22 riflery, archery, model rocketry, and more.

You will sleep each night in one of our spacious cabins, and enjoy Northern Frontier’s acclaimed food, campfires, and hospitality. And, although we are in the middle of the wilderness, you will have private hot showers and enclosed flush toilets a short walk from your cabin!


Give your son the gift of camp. Your son will reap a stronger faith in God, an appreciation for the outdoors, new skills, and close friendships that can last his lifetime. Make Northern Frontier Camp a priority this Summer. Register your son today.
