“Prepared for Manhood” 4 Night Father-Son Adventure experience – Wee Jasper

No good parent wants their son to remain a boy indefinitely. Yet without a compelling vision for what it means to be an authentic man, and a significant moment where such specific milestones are intentionally marked, he will struggle unnecessarily.

Our “Prepared for Manhood” Father-Son Adventure experiences are a uniquely-crafted process that help fathers guide their teenage and or older sons through their most difficult life transition, providing them with clear direction, and a healthy identity, thus preparing them to discover and live out their destinies.

Camp Jono – Mt Victoria

Camp Jono is a holiday camp for children aged between 7 and 19 with intellectual disabilities. This camp aims to provide these children with a unique holiday camp experience that they would not be able to have on regular holiday camps, due to their personal limitations.

We run a series of activities aimed at campers’ varied developmental levels. Each camper is paired with a one-on-one carer for the week, with several additional camp leaders and buddies providing supervision. A second aim of Camp Jono is to provide parents and carers with a week of respite from their daily care provision.

If you are interested please contact us by phone or email.
