“This is a must attend event for all men of God who need refreshing, renewing, or just a short get-a-way to fellowship with other men of God.” -2019 Pastor who attended

A popular parable is about the eager, young lumberjack who cut down 20 trees the first day on the job. The next day 15. The third, only 10. He was confused. He was working even harder and longer than on day one. Finally, an older, wiser lumberjack asked him the last time he sharpened his ax.

Life is demanding. Jobs, projects at home, father and husband duties, church responsibilities, and more all vie for attention. When’s the last time you took some time to sharpen your ax? At the Forged Man Camp, you will experience what it truly means to have iron sharpen iron. Join with other men in a weekend of adventure, fellowship, and spiritual growth. 

Not only will it have deep impact on you, but it will be a time of fun and refreshment as well. 

Recreation activities include air rifles, skeet shooting, tomahawk throwing, cornhole, archery, basketball, and much more. 

Fellowship over meals, competition, and during free time. 

Get away from the daily stresses and responsibilities to enjoy time with your Heavenly Father in a beautiful slice of His Creation. We will have messages and discussion times designed to challenge you to become the man He’s called you to be.
