Who is speaking

Boot Camp features John Eldredge and the Wild at Heart team via video recording. You will also hear from men just like you from the STL area.

What can I expect

A man needs a deeper understanding of why certain longings govern him—and why God made him just like that. And he needs a deeper understanding of why women long to be fought for, to be swept up into adventure, and to be the beauty.

Anything else to know

What if? What if those deep desires in our hearts are telling us the truth, revealing to us the lives we were meant to live? God gave us eyes so that we might see; he gave us ears that we might hear; he gave us wills that we might choose; and he gave us hearts that we might live. The way we handle the heart is everything. A man must know he is powerful; he must know he has what it takes.

What do I bring

Yourself, of course, with an open and expectant heart, mind and soul.
Clothing, pillow, twin bedding or sleeping bag, personal items, towel, toiletries, flashlight, bug spray, sunscreen, swim trunks, fishing pole (catch-n-release).

What do I leave at home

Preconceived ideas, religiosity, and technology.
A phone call could derail the entire weekend. Time to unplug!
Weapons, firearms, skateboards, pets, drugs, alcohol, pranks, items of value

Final thoughts about Boot Camp

This is not a retreat about the “seven things a man ought to do to be a nicer guy.” It is a four-day quest into the recovery of a man’s masculine soul, the release of a man’s heart—his passions and his true nature—all given him by God. It’s an invitation to rush the fields at Bannockburn, to go West, to leap from the falls and save the beauty. For if a man is going to know who he truly is as a man, if he is going to find a life worth living, love a woman deeply, and not pass on his confusion to his children, he simply must get his heart back.
