It all started with a camp...in Bozeman. A few of the men from Gillette Christian Center's leadership committee attended a Wild @ Heart Bootcamp. Then those people told a few people when they got back home. Then those people they told were intrigued enough so they went. Then when those people returned we started coming up with a plan. Instead of driving 8 hours across Wyoming & Montana to go to a Wild @ Heart Bootcamp, why don't we just start up our own.
And so the "Bootcamp Wyoming" was born. First off we need to clarify something. Even though it is called Bootcamp Wyoming, the camp itself is held at the Trails End Camp which is in the south eastern corner of Montana. However, we chose the title based on 95% of the camp leadership team that would put on the Wild @ Heart bootcamps, were from churchs in Wyoming.
We held our first camp by ourselves in March of 2012. We figured we would have around 20-25 people show up since this was our first one. We were amazed at what plans God had in store for us when over 65 guys showed up. Due to such an amazing success it was determined to have another one in August of 2012. God lead over 40 guys to camp that weekend it August.
I think after the success of both Bootcamps in 2012, we started to realize that we hadn't even scratched the surface of the amount of men in our tri-state region (South Dakota, Montana, & Wyoming) with whom would benefit from attending the Wild @ Heart bootcamp.
One of the major differences between our camp and the official camp in Colorado led by John and his group is (no matter the weather) we have activities to keep the men busy inbetween their sessions. Whether it is the zip line, paintball, pistol range, trap range, or long range rifle, mountain biking, horseback riding, and just good ol' fashioned walking, the camp has so much to offer.
Another reason why we realized we have definitely found a home for our camps for years to come has to be Jim and his staff. They are so friendly and very customer service based. If there's something you need, then they bend over backwards to try and make it happen. But evenmore important than that is the FOOD!
All of us thoroughly enjoy the work that God has planned for us in trying to reach Men and help them rescue/recover their heart.
