What airport do I fly into?
Boise, Idaho (BOI)
What time should I book my flights?
Your flight will need to arrive on Tuesday by 2:00 pm. You’ll be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in Eagle, ID, which is about 30 minutes from the Boise airport. There is shuttle service available, provided by the Hilton. You will need to call the Hilton when you arrive to schedule a shuttle pick up, or if you are getting in at the last minute, you may need to take a cab in order to make it. The Brave Bus will pick you up at the Hilton at 4:00 pm on Tuesday and take you to the Brave River Ranch. Camp ends at the Ranch late on Friday night, so you will be able to schedule your return flight at any time on Saturday. Checkout is noon, so take your time if you can and plan a relaxing morning at the Hotel with your new friends.
What kind of weather should I expect?
Idaho has four distinct seasons with everything from hot weather in the summer to snowy days in the winter. We will be in touch when your camp nears to let you know what to expect.
What should I bring with me?
We’ll be in contact with you when you register and we’ll provide you with a packing list. We make it easy to travel light—usually it’s just clothes and maybe a couple basic office supplies.
What about computers and phones?
We are 100% unplugged at Man Camp. We ask that you leave your laptops and iPads and such at home and turn OFF cell phones for the duration of camp. This is a very important part of what makes camp so special. Don’t worry — your loved ones will have an emergency contact number so that you can be reached if needed. You deserve this to be the best experience possible and unplugging is a critical part of that. (When was the last time you were in a room with a group of people where no one was texting or checking their messages?) You’ll be able to really focus on yourself and the incredible experiences you are having. Trust us – it’ll be okay.
Can you work around food allergies?
We can definitely feed you if you have food allergies or intolerances! Several men have come to Man Camp who are allergic to gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, nuts, and a plethora of other foods. If you need a special menu, just let us know and we’ll make sure that your meals are delicious and awesome so that you can have a stellar experience just like anyone else.
What is a typical day at Camp like?
A typical day at Man Camp starts off with having breakfast at the hotel with your fellow campers. We will then pick you up on our bus around 9:00am and drive you to Brave River Ranch where the morning begins with a lesson. We will feed you a wonderful lunch and delicious snacks in the afternoon. You will have time to journal, time to work on projects, time to take a walk along the river path, time to talk with other campers, time to play yard games, and time to do whatever else might be calling your name. At dinner time we gather inside and enjoy an incredible meal together, followed by a delectable dessert, of course. The evenings include more time to work on projects, share sessions around the campfire, music, laughter, and many surprises we can’t tell you about yet. At the end of the night, you will return back to the hotel for a restful night of sleep so you can do it all over again the next day!
With an experienced staff, your every need will be considered and attended to. We strive to make every detail memorable and special... nothing is overlooked.
Man Camp is the experience of a lifetime. Our goal is to make sure that you have the time of your life while making lifelong friendships, and especially that you go back to your life a stronger, more joyful man, feeling on-track and ready to be exactly who you are and to do exactly what is in your heart.
When and where is Camp held?
Man Camp is held in the small town of Star, Idaho on a beautiful piece of secluded property nestled right along the Boise River. We call it Brave River Ranch. We have spent year after year making it beautiful, a place where you will feel how important you are to us and a place where you can feel comfortable and peaceful. We love Idaho and want to share all of the reasons why, and the Ranch is the perfect place to do that.
