manhood academy

The heartbeat of Down Range is our Manhood Academy Program. Participants learn to push themselves and their teammates to their limits. And while the missions are challenging, they intentionally serve a much higher purpose than just physical tests. The challenges exist to create an opportunity to teach wisdom and truth that is applicable to one’s daily challenges by shifting their mindset and acknowledging that life's challenges are more than just the physical.

Groups are organized into teams based on their specific season of life for a long-weekend mission that will help guide them along God’s path to manhood. Each group’s focus will be based on age-appropriate battles young men face, focusing on a theme all men need.

We offer 3 expressions of our program throughout the year.

Manhood Academy Summer Camps

Manhood Academy Summer Camps is our summer camp experience that offers a small group setting for young men ages 11-18 to come together as a team. They are mentally and physically challenged by activities, obstacles, and challenges. Their only way to achieve their mission is to trust one another and work together as a team.

Manhood Academy Weekend Sessions

Manhood Academy Weekend Sessions is a consolidated version of our summer camp experience that are offered over the course of a weekend. These sessions offer a small group setting for young men ages 11-18 to come together as a team. They are mentally and physically challenged by activities, obstacles, and challenges. Their only way to achieve their mission is to trust one another and work together as a team.

Manhood Academy 2.0

Manhood Academy 2.0 is our newest addition to the Manhood Academy Program. This is our ongoing discipleship program that offers weekly programs to alumni campers from Summer Camp or Weekend Session programs.
