VCY Presents

"Be Strong in the Lord"

Father/Son Retreat 2014

An inspiring time for Dads and Sons at

Trail Ridge Camp

Hillsboro, Wisconsin

This is a retreat for dads and sons providing a wonderful time of encouragement, great fun and fellowship.

Godly leadership and moral guidance is needed in our families and in our culture. The example of Godly men in leadership is so much needed, not only in our families, but also in the world of business, government, in everyday life, and in our churches.

This special time will offer sons with older dads, as well as dads with younger sons, time to enjoy the beautiful countryside, wooded trails, and to participate in activities--like
Wrestling Demonstrations
Model RC airplane flying.
(you are encouraged to bring your own model RC airplanes)
Also, hiking and exploring are encouraged during this retreat.
Our guest speaker is Ben Peterson.

Ben Peterson grew up in the northwestern Wisconsin farming community of Comstock. At Cumberland High School football and wrestling caught his interest. He finished 2nd in the State Wrestling Tournament.

He was a 2x NCAA Champion and was part of 2 National Championship Teams.

This success catapulted Ben into the Olympics where he won a gold medal in Munich Germany in 1972 and silver in Montreal Canada in 1976. His brother, John, received silver medal in ’72 and a gold medal in ’76. During Ben’s career he won 5 National freestyle Championships, the Pan Americans and made the 1980 Olympic Team which was boycotted by the US.

In 1973 Ben began coaching at Maranatha Baptist Bible College in Watertown, Wisconsin where he was head coach for 28 seasons.

He will be sharing with the men at Trail Ridge how to “Be Strong in the Lord”.

VCY America has been involved in different camping ministries since 1963. In December of 1998, VCY was able to acquire a beautiful 385 acre camp facility in Hillsboro, Wisconsin that we now know as Trail Ridge Camp and Conference Center. Through the years, VCY has conducted camps for kids, teens, families, underprivileged youth and specialty retreats.

This ministry has opened the door for countless young people and adults to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Each summer, boys and girls enjoy a great time of wholesome activity coupled with vivid Bible time presentations and Scripture memory competition, in which campers love to participate. This Father/Son Retreat is just the latest activity to be added to the schedule.
