Our next weekend training for dads only (bio-dads, adoptive dads, grandpas, uncles, male significant others) is set for September 16-18th, 2016 at the Camp Casey. There is a $25 registration fee for the weekend, and you do need to bring the following items:

Shower/shave items – Don’t forget a bath towel! Plus, soap, shampoo, etc.
Snacks/extra beverages – The camp will be providing 5 meals over the weekend, and we will be providing snacks during the breaks also. Feel free to bring some of your own if you’d like.
We can even assist with transportation needs, if needed. Just let us know in the “Accommodation” box below.
During the weekend, you can learn about several different topics related to raising a child with behavioral and/or mental wellness issues.
The topics for this weekend include:
