Why Man Camp?
When and how do I check in?
Check-in at Riverbend Retreat Center begins at 4pm Friday afternoon. If you have registered for any pre-conference activities or events, simply show up at the designated time to those locations.
Once you arrive to Riverbend, simply follow the signs and allow the parking attendants to direct you. You’ll be looking for the Man Cave, a designated tent with snacks and drinks. There you’ll find registrations tables for those who have pre-registered, and those who are registering on site. You’ll be given a badge and lanyard. Please wear this throughout the retreat.
If you haven’t registered yet: If the retreat is not sold out, walk-in registration will be available at a higher rate. Simply arrive at Riverbend and visit a check-in station. The walk-in rate is $99.
Do I need to bring my registration confirmation with me to check in?
No, you do not. We’ll have a registrant list on-site.
If I’ve already completed my registration, but need to make changes or additions, what do I do?
Contact Casey.Oliver@StoneWaterChurch.com with enough detailed information to make the necessary revisions. Please allow 24-48hrs for changes to take affect.
What should I bring?
You should bring your Bible, a pen and clothing suitable for the weather. Although all of our sessions will be inside, we do have some great activities and events taking place outside. Also, recreational activities such as basketball and golf are available.
If you are staying overnight in a Riverbend Bunk house, you’ll need to bring bedding, linens and toiletries. (Don’t forget a pillow and a towel).
Are there any requirements for being a volunteer at Man Camp?
Be a man. Be at least 16yrs old. Be willing to serve. Show up on time. Complete the Man Camp Team application. We need you and we’d love to serve with you.
How can I promote the Man Camp to other men?
All you have to do is send this web link to a buddy (MANCAMP.StoneWaterChurch.com) and have them register. We routinely have leaders from other churches attend and we love it. We even have leaders take MAN CAMP back to their own members in order to equip the men of their community. For any additional information or questions, email Casey.Oliver@StoneWaterChurch.com.
What is your refund policy?
Registration is fully refundable through January 31. After that date, no refunds will be processed; however, all registrations are transferrable.
What should I wear?
Be comfortable. Wear whatever you want, just wear something. All teaching sessions will be indoors. Lunch on Saturday will be outside at food trucks. We’ll have outdoor activities both Friday evening and all throughout the day Saturday. Check the weather and plan accordingly.
Who can attend?
Men, ages 12 and older, may attend.
Are group rates available?
We apologize for the inconvenience but no. Each man will register as an individual.
I can’t attend all of Man Camp. Are there evening or day rates available?
Partial registrations are not available. You’re encouraged to register and attend the portions of the Man Camp your schedule allows.
When will I get my confirmation of my registration?
You should receive your registration confirmation as soon as you register. For any problems, please contact the Casey.Oliver@StoneWaterChurch.com for assistance.
Is there a way for my wife to be involved with Man Camp?
Yes, there is! There are a lot of volunteer opportunities for women at our Man Camp. Check out Man Camp Team registration for more details.
Also, we would love to minister to your wife while you are away. Our Man Camp Team has created a care package of encouragement we’d like to provide to your wife. See our Thank You Ladies section.
How long does each Man Camp session last?
Each session varies in time. The average session lasts between 40 mins to 1.5 hours.
Can I bring my children who are under 12 or bring my daughter(s)?
Due to topics of discussion and our desire to create a safe place for men, we ask that only men 12 years of age and older attend the retreat.
What if it rains?
Then we’ll probably get wet.
What if it snows?
Snow is a lot like rain, but colder.
Can I buy a block of tickets for my buddies?
What if I don’t know anybody?
Perfect! You’ll make friends in no time. We give great freedom for you to not talk to anyone if you don’t want to. But, we work very hard to create even better environments for you to get to know other men. There will be many men who attend who do not know others at camp. We’ve got your back.
