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 will be our seventh year at our location is an old 80 acre family farm in Lakewood, WI. This land is surrounded by the Nicolet National Forest. We will be camping outside. You can bring a camper or tent. It will be an amazing experience of unplugging from the modern world.

Noon to 6pm is your time to set up camp. Dinner will start at 6pm on Thursday with our first session following.

What Should I bring:

Bring a notebook/journal and pens. Camping gear. If you need something, just ask.

Watch with an alarm. Because you don't want to be looking at your phone.


Bring your own tents, campers and gear. If you don't own any of these items, please let me know and we will find what you need.

Other Activities:

There is free time each day. Currently, we have map and compass (orienteering), archery, and airsoft (chip in for extra costs).


You can bring your own food, but you can also purchase food with the group. If you bring food, plan on keeping preparation time to a minimum. (I recommend bringing some snacks and letting the food prep to the professionals.) Food orders will be collected before the event via email and payment will be made when you register. It is an amazing menu with smoked pulled port, baked french toast, burgers, kabobs, and more.

Vegetarian and vegan dietary needs can be accommodated. Please share any dietary needs on the sign up form. The chefs will be in contact with you to make sure their plans fit your needs.
