College & Adult Programs
Fathers Are Needed is a short workshop started by Mike Boomer and supported through Coldwater Foundation. The purpose of a FAN workshop is primarily to encourage men in their responsibility for the health of their family and their community. In a discussion style presentation, we work through basic principles of parenting, what it means to be a father and give a helpful overview of the different stages of masculinity. Conversations about the role of adventure, being intentional in your son/daughters growth, and individual stories have been an important component of a FAN workshop.
Workshops take place at Coldwater's center for outdoor leadership, Mink Lake Wilderness Camp/ Grand Marais, MN. Workshops can be conducted offsite at a suitable venue.
Typical weekend schedule
Arrival: 7pm Friday
Departure: 11am Sunday
Food will be provided for all meals on Saturday and Sunday breakfast.
An emphasis is placed on enjoying the company of other men, holding crucial conversations about what the challenges we are facing in our life, and rest; taking a break from the ordinary pattern of life.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about Coldwater Foundation, our new base of operations and what we are doing to develop leaders who are "built for others" and whose responsibility it is to take care of their community.
