Father-Son Weekend

2025 Dates:

May 9 – May 11, 2025
May 16 – May 18, 2025

Dads, spend your weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Camp High Rocks! Father-Son Weekend is open to families considering camp and our current campers, with boys aged 6-12 years. (If space allows, older campers and older brothers are welcome too: please inquire about availability)

The weekend is designed to give campers a taste of what camp is about before attending a full summer session. If your son has been to camp before, it is a wonderful weekend for him to show you everything he loves about camp. While everyone has a blast just being at camp, the real gift is giving both fathers and sons quality time to spend and form stronger relationships together.


Campers and their fathers can try out the climbing wall, go canoeing on the lake, take a hike to a nearby waterfall, shoot a rifle, or select from many other activities. Activities you can try include:

  • Rock Climbing
  • Fishing
  • Lake Canoeing
  • Stand-Up Paddle Boards
  • Archery & Riflery
  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Water Slide & Rope Swing
  • Sailing
  • Waterfall Hikes
  • Saturday Night Campfire
  • Making Tie-Dye Shirts
  • And More!

Father-Son Countdown



Enjoy the cool mountain air in our screened-in cabins. The weekend cabins are the same cabins we use during our summer sessions. All cabins have their own bathroom and shower area along with their own entry/exit doors. You may request to be with another family that you know. 



At Camp High Rocks, we’re excited to provide you the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the wonder of camp. Review our activity list above to see our weekend offerings. Some activities will be by sign-up, while others are available to be enjoyed at your own pace.
