What is Dads Weekend?
We know that Dads and Moms are super busy people. Work. Schedules. School. Sports. Bills. Do you have a place where you and your children both want to be at the same time? Do you long to make memories together? Does Mom need a break? Fort has an answer!
Dads Weekend is a simply designed winter getaway for dads to play and spend meaningful time with their children. The weekend includes a 2 night stay, plenty of free-time activities, tasty food and Cowboy Truth. Bring your daughters and/or sons and enjoy time outside in the crispy cold or inside by the fire. The weekend begins with Registration anytime after 7pm Friday night, with a 9pm Pizza Party and ends Sunday at lunch when you can fill your kids up for the ride home.
Dads Weekend at Fort has been going on for almost 10 years - with about 60 or 70 attendees. We anticipate 100 this year. Dads tell us how wonderful the time is for their whole family. They walk away refreshed and encouraged.
Some activities you can look forward to include broomball, ice skating, snow shoe-ing, sitting and drinking hot chocolate and coffee, cross country skiing, tubing, vepakelka (spinning chair of death), horseback trail rides, relaxing by the fireplace, crafts, science classes in the Nature Center, board games.
