Wild at Heart Boot Camp isn't just another men's retreat. That's the last thing anybody needs. The reason most messages for men ultimately fail is simple: they ignore what is deep and true to a man's heart and try to shape him up through various forms of pressure.
Not this. This weekend is an honest, no-BS trek into the deep passions and desires of a man's heart, the healing of the wounds he's taken in this battle, the realm of fatherhood and sex and God and calling—life as it was meant to be lived.
Through teaching sessions that go deep into the message of Wild at Heart, guided times of personal reflection, movies, optional adventures and downtime, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man. It is an expedition of the heart. Those who come say it is one of the greatest weekends of their entire life.
The lottery for this event will be held August 12-17. Please make a note on your calendar to enter the lottery on these dates. If you'd like to sign up for our weekly email updates, we send out a notice to this email list whenever we open the lottery.

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 have be at least eighteen years of age to enter the lottery.
Attendees are responsible for their own transportation.
We offer a shuttle service to and from Denver International Airport for an additional charge of $90 (round trip). If you are selected in the lottery, you will have the option to purchase a shuttle ticket. Additional shuttle details will be provided at that time.
We will not have any COVID related restrictions in place for this event (masks, distancing, limited attendance, etc.). If you are unvaccinated and/or concerned about contracting COVID, we encourage you to consider coming sometime in the future when you would be comfortable.
Ransomed Heart is a message ministry with an emphasis on discipling leaders of men and women in this message. Our intent is to offer training to a few leaders to equip them to go back to their communities to walk in the fullness of their strength, working to set hearts free. Our hope is that there will be countless Boot Camps across the nation led by these men. Because we are only able to offer 2-3 events each year, we have to be increasingly strategic with group acceptance policies. Our intent is to achieve maximum impact with each event.
Therefore, the Event lottery will not accept groups larger than 5.
Please do not simply divide a large group into groups of 5, as this is not the spirit of the strategy. We ask you to prayerfully evaluate your training strategy for your band of brothers, your church, and your region. Have only your top 2-5 key leaders enter the lottery.

Participation of John Eldredge
While it is our intent that John Eldredge will participate in the event, if for any reason he is unable to participate, the event will most likely continue without him.

If we do decide to cancel the event for any reason, we will refund your full registration fee to you.
