What is BASIC?

Wild at Heart BASIC is Wild at Heart Boot Camp led by John Eldredge and his team through video session in your local area.

Why do I need BASIC?

A man needs a deeper understanding of his masculine heart — and why God made him just like that. What if those deep desires in our hearts are telling us the truth, revealing to us the lives we were meant to live? A man must know he is powerful; he must know he has what it takes. The way we handle the heart is everything. BASIC 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.

Additional Information for this BASIC

This Boot Camp will be held at Montgomery Conference Center, a great retreat located on three beautiful, spring-fed lakes in a rural area of Northeast Florida. Late March is one of the best times of the year, weather-wise, in this area — neither cold nor hot. The lakes are likely to be a little cold but we will have some optional activities organized, which may include being on the water, depending on guys' interest. (More info on that later.) You certainly will want to bring footwear appropriate for walking on uneven terrain. There are hiking trails around this secluded property.

Meals will be prepared by Conference Center staff but we're asking guys to grab their own Thursday dinner on the way. First session starts at 7:30 PM Thursday.

Due to the intimate and personal nature of the content, Boot Camp cannot be viewed as a Father/Son event. We strongly encourage fathers and sons to attend, but they will need to participate in different Boot Camps, at least for each of their first experiences of this retreat. Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, Wild at Heart Boot Camp is not designed for youth. You must be at least eighteen years of age.
