Improved Communication Prevents Painful Misunderstanding Between Fathers and Sons

Misunderstanding can make fathers and sons alike, feel helpless, confused, frustrated, angry, hurt, resentful, isolated, and lonely.
Our guided “Rite of Passage” Father Son Adventure experiences are also a proven process that leads to a reduction in misunderstanding, and more effective communication, through quality one-on-one time together, and improved communication skills.

We Understand That You Probably Didn't Experience a Rite of Passage Yourself

However what would it have meant to you if you had received a clear and compelling vision for authentic manhood from your Dad, or a father figure, and experienced a moment whereby you were invited and welcomed into an authentic community of men?
We encourage you first to read about the benefits and importance of rites of passage, along with Rite of Passage examples, in "The Ultimate Guide to Rites of Passage".
And we also encourage you to read feedback and see photos from our guided “Rite of Passage” Father Son Adventure experiences from last year.

We Know Rites of Passage Well, And We Would Love to Be Your Guide!

Just as we have guided thousands of men and young men now, for more than 15 years now.

Fathering Adventures gave me what I had been longing for, and desperately needing, to help raise my son, and lead him toward manhood. I knew I needed it, however I felt daunted and inadequate in being able to provide it on my own. I simply did not have the confidence to create the process myself.

Fathering Adventures taught me life changing lessons. I made new friends, and made a best friend in a man whom I came to respect so much more… my father.

Our house had experienced anger and conflict for some time. Now it is filled with love and respect. Fathering Adventures gave both father and son the opportunity to understand and appreciate themselves and one another, which reflects in their everyday interactions still. Their experience was life changing for our entire family.
