Dads and sons, don’t miss this opportunity to spend the day enjoying time together as you have fun competing with other dad/son teams and making unforgettable memories!

Time and Location:
The competition takes place at the Kiwanis Youth Camp in La Grange, CA (East of Modesto) starting at 8:30 AM Saturday, October 5th and ending around 5 PM.

View the google map.

Here's a Picture of the gate you will go through once you arrive
Take Hwy 99 to Modesto. Exit at Hwy 132 East. Follow Hwy 132 through Modesto approximately 15 miles to Waterford.
Continue through Waterford on Hwy 132 and drive an additional 17 miles toward La Grange.
Immediately after crossing the Tuolumne River bridge, turn right on Lake Road, and then turn left through the gate into the Kiwanis Youth Camp.

Free Camping the Night Before:
There is a free opportunity to camp out at the competition site the night before for any dads and sons who would like to do so. There is no additional cost for this and it is an additional opportunity to spend time together. The gate opens at 5pm on Friday.


$35 per man and $15 per boy. If you send in your payment and registration postmarked before Friday September 27th we will give you $5 off your total registration fee.

If cost is an issue please just email me  (Dave Gregg) or call me (510-209-3678). We want you to join us and would be happy to work out an arrangement that will make your participation possible.

Father/Son Team day

524 Hudson Ave.
Oakdale, CA 95361
If you send in your payment and registration postmarked before Friday September 27th we will give you $5 off your total registration fee.
How the Competition works:
Each dad and son pair compete against other dad and son pairs in the same age group. For dads coming with multiple sons you will do each event with each of the sons that you bring. This means that dads with multiple sons will be ... how shall we say it ... very tired by the end of the day!

Events during the day of competition are broken into 4 age groups to make competition fair:
  • Grade K-2
  • Grade 3-4
  • Grade 5-6
  • Grade 7-12
Each age group will compete in 6 fun competitions. The competitions vary depending on the age group and might include:


A Bar-B-Que lunch is provided in the cost of registration. Snacks are available for purchase. Water is available the whole day. If you are coming for the free camping the night before you will need to provide dinner and breakfast for yourselves. Often dads and sons just stop for fast food dinner on the way and bring a simple breakfast for the morning. We will have hot water for you if you want it for food like instant oatmeal.

Our speaker has a passion for families, especially the enormous challenge of being a husband and father in a culture hostile to Biblical notions of both.He will bring a message that is encouraging, challenging, and useful in equipping fathers and sons to stand strong in the midst of a culture that wants us to believe that this is no longer possible.

Substitute Dads:
Is there a boy without a dad available to participate? Consider being substitute dad for the day! Substitute dads must be at least 10 years older than their “son.” Substitute dads will need to bring a medical release.

Boys love to win. Trophies are awarded to the top teams in each age group. Ribbons are awarded to the top scores in each event in each age group. Every boy will get a ribbon to remember their participation.
What To Bring:
It is not necessary that attendees be in great physical shape and you won't be doing any running but you should bring clothes that you can be comfortable in while you are active. Father/Son Team Day proceeds rain or shine, so you might need a rain coat and rain hat (pray you won't) or a sun hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. For dads bringing boys and young men in 5th grade and above, a short canoe race is part of the competition so if you think you might possibly tip we suggest you bring shorts or swim trunks for that possibility.
