About the Event

Are you looking for a support system to help instill Islamic manners of masculinity in your son?

Do you and your boy(s) need time to bond and strengthen your relationship?

Are you looking for a way to unplug and get away?

If so, the GCLEA Boys to Men Adventure Retreat may be just what you are looking for.

This program is designed to help young Muslim males (ages 10 to 16) gain the confidence, skills, and support they need to realize their full potential as they transition into manhood.

They will enjoy this 2-day and 2-night adventure retreat which includes individual and team challenges, essential skills, powerful presentations, inspirational campfire storytelling, and character-building for young Muslim men and their father figures in a fun, safe, and welcoming environment.

Give your sons the gifts of life-saving skills, life-long friendships, and a stronger relationship with you.

Help them define who they want and need to be as Muslim men!

The curriculum will include:

  • The Islamic concept of Masculinity
  • The concepts of faith-based responsibility and accountability
  • Wilderness Survival Skills
  • Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Development
  • The Impact of Technology on the Developing Brain
