In 2009, a group of 40 men were invited to Cabin 9 at Riverbend Retreat Center for a 24-hour experience that would change their lives. These men knew they were gathering to learn from pastors and church leaders on how to be the spiritual leaders of their family and warriors for the Kingdom. What they didn’t know, is this first Man Camp would be the catalyst for 14 more years of Man Camp events impacting over 4,000 men and counting.
Man Camp has been held at Riverbend Retreat Center and Glen Lake Camp & Retreat Center in Glen Rose, TX. Man Camp may have started with a small group at the first event, but today, over 700 men gather each year to be equipped and deployed to grow the Kingdom.
Through the years, numerous speakers, topics and crazy events have impacted the men of StoneWater Church and partner churches wanting to launch their own Man Camp event. You could expect anything from dodgeball, to skit characters, to launching eggs lit on fire and everything in between. Men laugh, develop lasting relationships, pull hamstrings and cover every topic you could imagine. Nothing is off limits when it comes to growing as men, and no one leaves without being challenged by both leaders, and Jesus. Man Camp is known for being a real and raw environment where men do business with the Lord and leave changed for the better.
