Plans for Life After Boot Camp

Wear something comfortable and casual. If you are cold natured, then bring a light sweater or coat as the room tends to be cool. Also, please dress modestly as many couples struggle with jealousy.

The cost for Marriage Boot Camp is $2,000.00 per couple. Individuals/singles can come to the Life Enrichment Boot Camp for $300, $500 for couples. Bring a friend!

Registration fees cover your attendance to the event and all materials necessary during the event. The registration fee does not include travel, meals, or lodging.

The Boot Camp experience takes place in multiple configurations from one-on-one, to small groups, to big groups; all to get the most learning and healing from the exercise.

The Boot Camp seminar does not provide child care and does not allow children in the event.

The Boot Camp is an intense program that is designed to accelerate growth through a series of games. Each day is more advanced and builds upon the games and drills of the previous day. If you cannot attend an entire Boot Camp, then please wait to attend until you can.

RELATIONSHIP STATUS

Yes! Communication is the #1 issue in EVERY relationship so you’re not alone! We give you the best, time-tested tools and then we use our “drill & kill” technique to drive these healthy habits into your natural way of connecting by applying the new tools in many situations. You will grow from being a “disaster communicator” to a “master communicator”!


NO! The Boot Camp is for all couples whether you are dating, engaged, or married. The Life Enrichment night time program is for individuals both married and single

Yes! The Marriage Boot Camp does not discriminate against anyone for any reason.

The Marriage Boot Camp is for anyone wanting to make positive change in their lives and relationship. Many couples come as a continuing discipline of growth, while others come as a last ditch effort to save to save what they have.

We can absolutely help you. The Marriage Boot Camp has a success rate that is higher than traditional marriage counseling. We conducted a study following 62 divorcing couples who graduated the Boot Camp recommitted to thier marriages to see how they were doing 2 years later. 80% of these couples ranked themselves “happily married”!

First, you will have the opportunity to rediscover why you fell in love in the first place and can choose to build on this or decide that this was never enough. You will know without a doubt if this is a relationship worth investing in or if you are better off going your separate ways. Second, should you choose to go your separate ways, you will learn to communicate in a way that will make the separating process go more smoothly and most importantly, you will have a set of tools with which to co-parent your children. You will also have those same tools to make all of your continuing relationships happy and healthy.

A large percentage of couples who come to the Marriage Boot Camp are struggling with infidelity. This is an extremely complicated issue with many diverse causes. Those who attend the Boot Camp will have the opportunity to discover the root causes, resolve the underlying issues, heal, forgive, and grow back together…IF you are willing to put in the hard work. You can leave the Boot Camp with the tools and disciplines to sustain a sacred and beautiful relationship.

Many couples invest so much time into their children’s lives that they forget to invest time in themselves or their relationship. The Boot Camp will help you rediscover who you are together and from there, find ways to explore the rich joy of life together. Many couples say they feel closer and have a deeper new love than they ever knew was possible!

Marriage Boot Camp will make crystal clear that abusive behavior will never give you the life you’ve always wanted and we will give you the tools to express anger in a healthy way. We drill down into the root causes of toxic anger (often from childhood) and show you the path to freedom.

MARRIAGE COUNSELING

Addiction is a complex problem that requires several treatment approaches. The first is SOBRIETY. An addict must be sober before he can go on to the deeper healing work. The Boot Camp is designed to get at the deep wounds that are often the genesis of addiction. Remember, in addiction recovery sobriety is not the goal, connection is the goal.

Many counselors, therapists and coaches refer their clients to the Boot Camp seminar as it is a great way to begin or jump start the healing journey but it is NOT a replacement for the work that counselors do long term. Click on the CONTACT US window and we will work with you toward your therapeutic goals with your client. We can also provide financial assistance if needed.

Marriage Boot Camp does not provide one-on-one counseling. We are not licensed therapists or counselors. We will not give advice or make recommendations. Everything we do at the Marriage Boot Camp is done in a group setting with various dynamics depending upon the particular drill or game that is being conducted.

No, we do not offer private Marriage Boot Camp sessions. Everything we do at the Marriage Boot Camp is done in a group setting with various dynamics depending upon the particular drill or game that is being conducted.

We don’t give you any advice. You’ll find your own answers as you play the interactive games and drills. Unlike counseling, we have 40 hours over four short days to work with you. The program is intense enough to keep you in the moment so that you are ready and willing to address the issues as they come up. Most counselors that have attended the Boot Camp say that our four-day program is equivalent to a minimum of two years worth of therapy.

MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP & SPIRITUALITY

The Boot Camp is not a “religious” organization and we do not preach or manipulate. We do have a Christian underpinning of love and non-judgement. We do allow individuals to freely express how God relates to them, but we do not allow anyone to preach at others. We require that everyone be respectful of the different belief systems of the participants. Many people come to the Boot Camp with spiritual damage from religious people or organizations and we work very hard to help people heal and seek God in their own way.

The Marriage Boot Camp is an inclusive, respectful experience for everybody. In 20+ years we have not had a single complaint. Although we have Christian beliefs, we welcome everyone and hold strongly to the belief that we are not to judge another’s beliefs.

“Good psychology is good theology” ~ Elizabeth Carroll. We believe that all the good in the healing arts aligns perfectly with biblical truth and we work diligently to maintain that balance. There is nothing in the Boot Camp curriculum that would be considered controversial to the Judeo Christian culture. We are a therapeutic, healing ministry not an evangelical ministry.

MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP TV

We do not choose who appears on the Marriage Boot Camp TV shows. If you are only interested on being on TV you will need to contact the TV network directly.

NO! The TV version, while real, is far more dramatized for the sake of TV than what you will experience in person. Our standard boot camps are not filmed or recorded for TV.

No. The Boot Camp is in a private and confidential setting. If we conduct seminars in the future that are going to be filmed, we will designate those seminars as TV special events.
