7/7 Father And Family


One of the most important and influential people in a young person’s life is their father. Therefore, SROM has developed the Father/Family wilderness experience as an opportunity to connect fathers and children in the ruggedness of God’s creation. This shared experience in the wilderness is unique in its ability to assist fathers in their goal of renewing, restoring or transforming relationships with their children. It is our sincere passion to see fathers and children connect at an authentic and honest heart level. Stresses in today’s culture and misplaced values can have the harmful effect of disconnecting families. These relationships are too often marked by dysfunction, rebellion, mistrust, anger, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness. It is the goal of this course to dive into the problems and cut them off at the root!


Father Family


The purpose of the Father/Family course is to build relationships by facilitating honest communication and reconciliation, with forgiveness and renewal. SROM knows this can happen effectively in the context of an extended backpacking trip set in the open wilderness that is God’s creation. The wilderness is unique in its ability to remove distractions and walls of separation so people can participate in the spiritual process of turning their hearts toward one another (Malachi 4:6).

If you are the father of a child, step-child, adopted or spiritual child, we challenge you to move beyond the status quo and embark on an experience of a lifetime! This is an opportunity to demonstrate their priority in your life and schedule by taking time away from all the distractions that compete for your attention. So why not turn off the computer, cell phone, and television? Bring them on a challenging and memorable wilderness experience in Wyoming. Doing something unique with the young person who is the extension of your legacy may be the most important investment you ever make.

Being in the wilderness is a time set apart from distractions where walls are broken down and lives are changed. God continually renews and restores His people in the wilderness. Our prayer for this course is that the hearts of fathers and daughters open toward one another so that a bond of trust and confidence can form in their relationship.

Learning Objectives

Students will participate in outdoor and adventure activities as a team and a community.  However, these activities are not the focus, but rather the means for growth, challenge, and refinement.  Spiritual growth will come as the group discusses the lessons learned in each activity.  The arc between each lesson learned and the practical application to life becomes a catalyst for revelation and change.  Our prayer is that this experience will lead to a renewed identity in Christ, confidence, restored relationships with family and peers, and leadership development.

Skills included on the Father/Family course include (but are not limited to) the following:
