Reconxted – Rites of Passage camp for teenage boys and their fathers
12 January 2022
On behalf of the Mental Health Foundation (ACT), I am excited to launch our April 2022 Rites of Passage camp for teenage boys and their fathers (or male mentor, uncle, stepdad etc) right here in Canberra.
During the camp, your teenage boys will:
Take a break from all forms of tech (as will their fathers )
Find opportunities to safely explore issues important to them as they transition to adulthood.
Hear stories from other men about challenges in their lives and how they dealt with those challenges
Be challenged both physically and mentally
Commit to behavioural changes they need to make to begin becoming independent of their parents
Honoured for the skills and gifts that they bring to the community
Have the opportunity to have fun and to deepen their relationship with the man that they came with
