Catholic men go Wild again

Written by Ann Rodgers on .

Those Catholic Wild Men are back.

Or at least they will be June 14-17, 2012, when the Catholic Men's Fellowship of Pittsburgh and the King's Men of Philadelphia hold their third annual "Into the Wild" retreat at Raccoon Creek State Park. But they want reservations in now.

It's intended to be a wholesome "let men be men" experience, with fishing, orienteering, archery, outdoor cooking and "faith presented in a masculine modality."  Organizers say it's great for fathers and sons, but that single men and married men without children are also welcome. No experience is necessary for any of the outdoor activities.

And -- this is a first for This Blog --there's a 15 percent discount on registration if you mention that you heard about it by reading Faithburgh. Registration costs vary, but range from $195 for a single student to $575 for a father and two sons.  That covers lodging in a cabin and nine meals including a wild game feast.
