Every man needs an adventure to live. A battle to fight. A beauty to rescue.

The Band of Brothers Men's Ministry is excited to announce their first annual Men's Retreat!

But this retreat is not for the faint at heart... it's for the WILD AT HEART!

We will be Off-the-Grid camping together with no internet. No running water. No regular electricity. Just a Band of Brothers in the breathtaking beauty of God's creation.

June 2 – 5

Cloudland Canyon, Rising Fawn, GA

  • Arrive at North Boulevard East Campus at 12:00pm on Thursday, so we can ride out together. The trip will take about an hour and a half to get to the camp ground.
  • We will then hike in to the site and set-up. This will be followed by dinner and the evening session.
  • The retreat will conclude at 12:00 noon on Sunday and we will then break down camp for the trip back to the church.

$40.00 per man, due by May 25th.


Your registration fee covers the campsite fee and all of the teaching and materials by Wild at Heart for the duration of the weekend. It does not include travel arrangements to and from Cloudland Canyon.

The camp site does not have electricity. We will use a generator during the sessions to power the videos, however we will limit generator use as much as possible. Laptops, electronic notepads, and camera use ARE NOT permitted during the sessions as it is our desire to minimize all distractions. However, feel free to bring flashlights, lanterns, candles, etc. for additional lighting for the weekend.

Please Note: Cell phone access and internet access will not be available during the retreat. Phone access at BASIC will be for emergencies only. Please provide your family with the Emergency Phone Number BELOW and let them know that you will be unavailable until Sunday after the close of the retreat.

Food and water will not be provided. This will be a complete backcountry site we will be camping at. The site is by running water, so you can use camping filtration systems for drinking water. As the time gets closer, we will discuss food and water options for those who have not been off- grid camping.

BASIC attire is casual. Bring clothing layers, a waterproof jacket, hat, sunscreen, and comfortable shoes. Dress comfortably and prepare for a wide range of weather. This is still close enough for that “Tennessee weather”!

Although plenty of free time will be available, much of the time will be devoted to personal reflection on what God is revealing throughout the weekend. There are hiking trails nearby as well as bike trails.

BASIC is a video driven retreat, led by John Eldredge and the Wild at Heart Team. Brian and Caleb will be on site as facilitators.
