So, you're sure if you hear another word about manliness or
wood or arm wrestling you're gonna puke, right? Me too. For me, MAN CAMP didn’t start
any of that stuff. It had nothing to do with the Bro Code or Bare-knuckle fighting...
Look, I get it, church stuff can feel super weird - especially if
it’s not what you grew up with."Spend the weekend in the woods with a bunch of Jesus

Perfect! You’ll make friends in no time. Every man camper will be assigned a unit: a group of 9 other guys, led by a trip captain. You’ll do everything with your unit: get outfitted, bring food, set up camp, compete and generally solve problems. You are going to be good friends with your unit by the time this trip is over.
