We’ve talked about all sorts of big things that might stand between you and MAN CAMP, but I know there are all sorts of little “buts” that are probably bouncing around in your head as well...
My first instinct is to tell you to “Get your head out of your butt, man up and buy a ticket!” But, this is a church camp - and Jesus, while being a badass, is about grace as well as truth. (Thankfully!)
So, if you’re on the fence, or you’re mostly in but you still have a hand on the fence, consider these things...
I think I wanna go to MAN CAMP but...
Awesome! You’re gonna love it. It is way simpler than you think. Really all you need is a tent, sleeping bag, a chair, a cup and a plate. (You may even be able to bunk in with someone and not need a tent at all).
You can get gear tons of places. From super cheap to super expensive. And, like it says above, your Unit will help you make sure you’re covered. Lots of guys share/loan gear (just no sharing sleeping bags, because eww)
The macho stuff is just hype. We’re not neanderthals. This isn’t a book club but trust us, you’ll love it. Really, it's a bunch of dudes hanging out outside for a weekend. Pretty simple. More thoughts on that here.
Sleeping outside is just like sleeping inside, only on the ground. You’ll be fine!
Depending on what it is, you may be better off not coming. The land is unimproved. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance.
You’ll want to check out Woman Camp. MAN CAMP is for men only.
Your sobriety is super important and, ultimately, your responsibility. If you’re not sure being around a bunch of other dudes and a ton of beer is a good spot for you, don’t go.
Relax! You’ll get a Trip Captain who will guide you through the whole process.
You don’t need to be Cross-Fit maniac or an Ultra Runner, you’re just camping in a field for a couple nights, you’ll be fine.
Well, figure it out. We don’t do scholarships, discounts or freebies. If you can buy smokes or beers, you can find the money to go. If you can’t, maybe this isn’t the right time for you to go.
How much trouble can they get into in one weekend? Seriously though, spending a weekend becoming a better dad is worth the effort.
If your allergies are bad enough that ManCamp is an issue, you shouldn't be outside at all. Ever.
Buy a battery operated one or do without it for two nights. We don’t have electricity for you (or anyone). If that doesn’t work for you, MC may not be the right fit for you.
Camping refrigerators are called “coolers”.
So what? You won’t be forced to. (And maybe you’ll find out you love that.)
She’s a knucklehead. This experience will make you the best version of you. Likely the man she wants and needs. Have her read this.
Yes you can. Figure it out.
Ours too, at least when it's all breathy and weak. Get a load of BLOODBROTHER. Nothing weak there.
Come on! You can totally do this. You need this!
See you out there,
