Hey Dads. You only get 18 summers with your son before they’re out of your house, and what we hear is that these 18 years go by way too fast. This retreat is loaded with activities that you can’t do at home, and the whole weekend is designed for you to make memories with your son and make an impact on his life. These will go down as the best three days of your year.
What To Expect
Dude, a Lake
Forget high-fives and side-hugs, let’s take our shirts off and chest bump each other to celebrate testosterone.
Joel Trainer, Retreat Director
After a brief two-year hunting trip to the hills of Argentina with his three best friends (Tim Tebow, Hulk Hogan, and a velociraptor named Charlie), Joel Trainer is back at Beulah Beach and ready to lead the Father and Son Retreat once again. The chances of Joel wearing a shirt during the retreat are about as high as the chances of Joel’s hitlist whitetail buck surviving bow season – 0%. Joel spends his days stalking prey and his evenings serenading his wife with flute solos and encouraging words, both of which he does wearing a full ghillie suit.
Joel is the Lead Pastor at Three Creeks Church in Gahanna, Ohio. He is fired up to be back in the saddle, directing this retreat. And now he has a boy! His son Judah is 4 years old and can’t wait to come to his first Father and Son Retreat at Beulah Beach. Joel says, “I’ve been waiting for this for years. I finally get to bring my son, enjoy this weekend, laugh our heads off and making lifetime memories. I am counting down the days. It can’t come soon enough.”
