Every son needs a father who understands, communicates, and encourages him. As a father, you are the primary and most significant male role model in your son’s journey to becoming a man.

What To Expect







What Others Have Said

“Within 26 hours, you have taught us the real essence of family, especially between father and son.”

– Heng Seng (Father)

“I thought I spent quality time with my son but in terms of quality communication, that was something lacking which he honestly shared with me. This came as a surprise but it’s something I can change now rather than regret later.”

– Jesvinder (Father)

“So before the camp, my dad and I did not get along very well together but Focus on the Family Malaysia has helped me and my dad to bond.”

– William (Son)

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I bring more than one son to attend the camp?
