Camp Benefits

It’s important for every young boy to spend quality time with their Father or main male mentor. The Young Warriors Camp is a perfect opportunity for fathers and sons to connect and get away from the normal distractions and stresses of day-to-day life.
During this overnight camp set in the spectacular Byron Bay hinterland you will enjoy fun and adventure, whilst also participating in specially designed activities created by Dr Arne to develop stronger father son bonds.
As your son approaches his teenage years it’s crucial that you are able to communicate and understand what he needs at this stage in his life and The Young Warriors camp is the perfect way to do this. It will be a positive life changing experience for both of you.

This program is inclusive of camping accommodation and all meals.

Who are the camps for?

Boys 7-11yrs and their Fathers.

Where & when are the camps held?

Making Men camps are held throughout the year in a purpose built bush location near Mullumbimby in Northern NSW.

Is this a religious program?

No. This program is not based on any religion, and does not promote any one belief over another. Our programs blend a number of experiences drawn from many cultures and practices, and we invite you to honour your own beliefs.

At all times you have a choice to participate in an activity or not. We are a values based organisation founded on the understanding that everybody is entitled to have their own believes that need to be respected.

Will my son be safe?

YES. As a professional organisation the wellbeing of your boy is paramount. We have strict Occupational Health and Safety guidelines, Child Protection policies and procedures, qualified First Aid Officers and evacuation procedures in place on all camps.

What are the facilities like on camp?

We have kitchen facilities, camping areas, recreational spaces, composting toilets, undercover areas, all located in a beautiful natural bush setting.

What happens if it rains?

Dry areas are utilised with the care of all participants as a priority. All participants should bring effective wet weather gear with them (as directed on each camp’s ‘what to bring’ list). We do not cancel camps because of wet weather.

Do I have to sleep on site? I live only a few minutes away….

Yes. One of the core elements of the camps is that it is a group residential experience.

My son’s father can’t or won’t come – who can come on the camp with him?

The best person to take your boy on a camp is his father, but we are aware that this is not always an available option. A grandfather, uncle or other close male family member is ideal, or a male family friend actively involved in your boy’s life. If this is not available, we will try to arrange a meeting with a suitable male mentor who may accompany your boy on a camp. We are happy to talk personally with you if required.

I have two sons – can they both come on the same camp?

No it is very important that the father/mentor is able to give full attention to his boy. Past participants often return a second time with their other boy.
