About the event
We would love you to join us at DadCamp 2023
We're back at Belfast YMCA for our fourth year of DadCamp NI and we are doing things a bit differently. Our theme is ALL IN and we are going ALL IN with our programme, ALL IN with helping dads be the best, and ALL IN with sons and daughters. Yes, this will be our first camp with sons and daughters combined!
Guest speaker: Brian Somerville
Brian was senior pastor of Cornerstone City Church in Derry for almost 10 years and is now Executive Director of Christian Churches Ireland. An outstanding communicator, a precious friend to Crown Jesus and a father to… wait for it… quadruplets! So, we can't wait to hear what he has to share.
DadCamp kicks off on the Friday evening with a BBQ, games and campfire before a full day of activities on the Saturday for you to enjoy with your kids.
There will be a small number of sessions for dad's to hear from Brian and to pray together, during this time the kids and young people will have their very own activities.
There is also dedicated time for you to spend with your kids.
We believe everything changes when a dad is strong; kids are stronger, family relationships are stronger, communities are stronger & nations are stronger.
What do i need to do now?
Dads, you just need to bring your children & your tent. We promise to take care of the rest, as all of your food & activities are included.
Once you have completed your registration, there will be a follow up email containing all the relevant information for DadCamp 2023.
We can't wait to see you for what we believe will be a truly fantastic experience at DadCamp 2023.

Here's what other Dads have to say about their experience of DADCAMP
"Just want to say thank-you again to the whole team for organising DADCAMP. Jamie, Charlie and I really enjoyed it.
Boys really enjoyed the camp fire challenges.
Think everyone enjoys the team games. (volleyball,dodgeball) Really good fun, and only chance we normally get to play these games along with our kids.
DADCAMP has helped me so much since 2019. "
"A big thank you to you and all the team for another fantastic DADCAMP
Hannah and I are already looking forward to the next one."
"I just wanted to thank everyone involved with DADCAMP for a truly amazing weekend that both I, Hannah and Zach will remember!
Great activities, great talks, great times of sharing with other dads and all the leaders were true servants of Christ putting their all into everything they did.
I've definitely a lot to reflect on and a lot to be thankful for!
When talking to other dads, it was easy to tell many others have been impacted as much as I.
It's also so encouraging to see others dads with a heart for wanting to be the best dad they can be.
So, this is my humble thank you to all the Team at DADCAMP! "
"Folks, Just a word of thanks for DADCAMP. Thank you for all of the planning and organising that you put into DADCAMP.
It was greatly appreciated. This was the first time I brought my daughter to DADCAMP.
She was buzzing from she arrived until she almost dozed off on the way home. She loved it and made lots of new friends as well. She can't wait until next year... along with her wee brother now.
I thoroughly enjoyed it as well and the teaching. Keep up the great work. Every blessing"
