Father-Son Weekend

2024 Dates: 
May 10 – May 12, 2024
May 17 – May 19, 2024

Dads, come spend your weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Camp High Rocks! You are invited to attend our Seventh Annual Father-Son Weekend. Our Father-Son Weekend is open to currently enrolled campers and prospective families who have boys ages 6-12 years of age. *If space allows, older campers and older brothers may also attend.  Please check in with us 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.

Enjoy the cool air of the mountains in our screened-in cabins. Accommodations for the weekend 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 in a cabin with another family that you know. If you do not know another family we will group you with boys of similar age.  


Camp High Rocks is offering a chance to get outside and enjoy the wonder of camp. The weekend will be full of activities! See the above list for all of our activity offerings. Some of the activities will be by sign up and others you will be able to roam at your leisure.

Meals At Camp

Camp High Rocks is known for its delicious food! Meals are served in our “cafeteria style” in our dining hall. You can expect food that will appeal to the dads and campers! From Sunday morning cinnamon rolls to plenty of fruit, we know how to make food that everyone loves. Father-Son is all-inclusive, therefore, you will receive all meals from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. And of course, there will be snacks available during the day as we know everyone can get a bit hungry from running to different activities!

Weekend Schedule

Plan on arriving on Friday afternoon and staying through Sunday lunch. Throughout the weekend you will try activities, hang out by the lake, and enjoy evening programs created just for you! Are you ready to go down the zip line and then jump in the lake to paddle board? Imagine an action-packed weekend schedule meant to show you all the fun parts of camp. It is our goal to make this your best weekend of the year!
