justguysCHS-MC is pleased to announce the 3rd Father/Son Retreat; Fall Fun. This is an exciting opportunity to connect and grow together through a combination of fun-filled group activities and informal information sharing sessions. There will also be lots of free time so that everyone can enjoy the facilities at Camp Assiniboia, just outside the Winnipeg Perimeter.

Here are a few more details for those of you who think that it will be tough going taking your young boy to this wonderfully fun event.

Since everyone coming will have an adult with them, the parenting becomes a group effort.  Not only that, but we have some young adults coming who are very happy to help with the younger kids.  So, if you are hesitant about being the only one responsible about your child, don’t worry, you’ll have lots of help.  Aside from the other parents and attendees, you will also have medical staff attending to help you out.

The days are scheduled and full of appropriate activities like tunnel maze, floor hockey, Frisbee Golf and predatory/prey games.  There is also a ropes course for those who are more monkey than boy.hesitant about being the only one responsible about your child, don’t worry, you’ll have lots of help.  Aside from the other parents and attendees, you will also have medical staff attending to help you out.Activity Agenda Just the Guys 2006

You won’t have to worry about meal times, since that is all included. We are even planning a wiener roast.

There is no fee to attend; however, those attending are responsible for their own transportation to and from the retreat*

Still not convinced that this is one event that shouldn’t be missed?  Here are some quotes from registrants from previous years…

“The facility is first rate and the staff are relaxed and quick to solve problems.  We had a fantastic experience and will come back.”

 “Interaction with the kids was the most important part of the weekend. My child really enjoyed reuniting and formulating new friendships.”

 “It was great for my kid to meet other kids with bleeding disorders”
