In order for a man to get his heart back, he’s got to take a journey. One that involves risk, danger, and a point of no return. The Mount Hermon Wild at Heart Boot Camp, is based upon the lifestyle described in the book Wild at Heart, by John Eldredge. The weekend is a quest into the recovery of the masculine soul. It is an honest, no holding back trek into the deep passions and desires of a man’s heart, into the healing of the wounds he’s taken in life, into the realm of fatherhood, sex, marriage and God—life as it was meant to be lived by a man.
Mount Hermon Wild at Heart Boot Camp is unlike any men’s event you have ever been to—it is an expedition of the heart. Through the transparent messages of presenters and attendees, the epic movie clips, the times of quiet reflection, and optional adventures, you will reconnect with the heart God gave you as a man. And your heart will come alive again. Those who come say it is one of the most transformational weekends of their life.
Bootcamp is a special program designed for you to attend EVERY part from start to finish. We stress the importance of being on time for the opening session Friday evening and staying through the closing session on Sunday. If this is not possible, we encourage you to register for the next Bootcamp that you could attend all sessions.

Come join other men seeking to be the man they were originally made to be. This is not a sports or physical endurance weekend. It is a weekend for your heart and soul. No matter what your current situation in life.
The schedule will include time for large and small group interaction, personal intimacy with God, and optional recreation.
"This is the most life-changing event I've ever attended!"
"It's like no other men's conference out there"
"My wife and kids noticed a real change, I came home a new man and a new dad"
"Phenomenal! The speakers were great, very encouraging and challenging – this impacted me so much."
Any physical/recreational activities at Mount Hermon are optional. Our core leaders for the weekend have attended Ransomed Heart events, however, Boot Camp Mount Hermon is not affiliated with nor sponsored by Ransomed Heart Ministries.

A fun and challenging nine-hole disc golf course that navigates through our indigenous ponderosa pines.
Our high ropes courses will push you higher and farther with these aerial challenges. Climb the tower, take a leap, traverse the wires and travel through the air on our new zip line!
Duck, dive, and shoot your way through bunkers, barrels, ditches, and the natural terrain of our paint ball course.
Hang at our HEATED pool, in the center of camp, and maybe even hit the high dive if you’re game. The pool is perfect for chilling, lap swims, or an exciting game of water basketball or water polo. The lights in the pool at night make the pool area a very popular hangout and activity.
Borrow a mountain bike from the Fieldhouse and explore the trails or join us on a guided ride.
Soar through the unique forest groves and experience the giant redwoods from 150 feet above the canyon floor and zipping through the trees.
