The Hearts of the Father is like none other, from its inception in 2015 the cornerstone has been to create memories in the outdoors that will last a lifetime. Boy's from all over Texas have experienced this budding organization. Real life happens here. Boys whom have never seen their dad, estranged from an abusive father, only see's his dad on a weekend. A boy who has never known normal because he has bounced around from foster home to foster home and has no sense of family or even a newly fostered boy whose temporary family just got him and is looking for something to get him involved in REAL LIFE HAPPENS HERE
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT: We are a Christian organization and invite boys from all walks of life who fit into our target audience dynamic.We will present the Gospel in a very relevant way.We don't go by a script but we dig deep in Hearts and expose the false hope and lies that many boys have been given and replace it with true hope and promise that Jesus brings and mix in an authentic outdoor experience. We are not a cookie cutter status quo kum by ya social club.We often are the only place where a boy can be himself in a safe,structured environment where he can come and tear walls down and receive guidance,knowledge,wisdom and fun
OUR PROGRAMS: Are specifically designed to expose your boy to the outdoors promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future.
Our overnight camping events will teach boys the basic aspects of camping such as setting up a tent,gathering wood and making a fire,learning about different plants and insects ,how to fish, taught about proper gun safety and will get to replicate instruction through a structured rifle range with rifle instructors.
