Sons of Thunder

Father/Son Weekend

Boys entering 1st - 8th Grade

Summer 2021

Sons of Thunder Enthusiasts!

Sons of Thunder is one of our favorite programs at Camp Tadmor. We feel honored that we get to create space and provide resources for you to guide your son into a deeper relationship with Christ. Sons of Thunder is an opportunity for you to journey together, discovering more about who God is and how God is working in your lives. Now more than ever, it's important for you to lead your son in knowing the love and grace of our perfect Father God.

This year, we will dive into the theme of Search & Rescue, exploring how as a family, you are called to 'seek' those who are lost and take part in the Kingdom work of 'rescue' by living out and offering Christ's gift of salvation.

God has steered the planning of Sons of Thunder 2020 and we're excited to see Him continue to work. We want to encourage you to be open to God's leading as you make the most of the experiences you will share with your son.

We look forward to seeing you this summer and we trust that God is already preparing you for a great time as we learn to "Search & Rescue" for the Kingdom of God.
