Base Camp 2019 will be Thursday, November 7th through Sunday, November 10th

The Book of Proverbs tells us “Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life (4:23).” But what does that mean? What exactly are we guarding? Most men don’t understand the depths and mysteries of their own heart; therefore they leave it totally unguarded. They are soon cut off from the wellspring, leaving only the question - isn’t there something more to life?

Each of us has a heart that contains all the desires and longings we have as men. If we could but understand that heart and the implications it has for our relationships with God and our loved ones, it could change everything.

Expedition of the Heart: BASE CAMP is a quest into the recovery of your masculine heart as outlined in John Eldredge’s book Wild at Heart. We believe that 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. This is not something that can be done amidst all the distractions of daily life - to truly explore these depths we must follow the example of Jesus and get away to spend time alone with the Father.

BASE CAMP is designed to prepare men to begin that journey. Through teaching sessions, film clips and guided periods of reflection and journaling, we will walk alongside you as we explore what God intended when he created our hearts. Our hope is that over this weekend you will get a glimpse of the Life that Christ promised and will leave with a hunger for more.

The adventure begins on Thursday, November 7th, 2019.



BASE CAMP is held at the Barbara Harris Conference Center in Greenfield, New Hampshire. All accommodations, meals and sessions are held at this beautiful facility.

Base Camp 2018 is now in the rear view mirror. With over 30 attenders, the new 'shorter format' seemed to work very well. Although our time was compressed, we still covered all the content and had time to connect with other attenders as well as get our time in alone to do the hard work associated with the material.

Thanks to all the presenters and to the attenders for making 2018 such a success!


It has been one week since we left Base Camp 2017. What a great experience! This year’s event was different than in years’ past: a smaller group (17), everyone was a repeat attender, and most men had been 4 or more times.

As a result, the content was more advanced and we were able to share in a more informal setting. Fewer movie clips, more discussion, deeper topics.

Can’t wait to see what God brings us next year!
