A Marriage Retreat

Counselors claim that the Marriage Boot Camp is the Best Marriage Retreat available for modern day couples. Jim Carroll, the founder of the seminar, has more than 20 years specializing in healing relationships and changing lives. The Boot Camp’s record for saving marriages is why marriage counselors trust our one-of-a-kind marriage retreat. Married couples rave about the results of our intense Marriage Seminar. Most couples consider it one of the top five experiences of their lives.  Even Hollywood celebrities agree that the Boot Camp saves marriages.

Nothing compares to our Marriage Retreat. Even couples that have already filed divorce are finding love and respect for each other. If you are ready to put in the hard work, then our couples retreat is the perfect solution.

The Marriage Boot Camp is a 4-day marriage seminar designed to save relationships by using games, drills and exercises. Married couples learn more about themselves by participating in our life-revealing games, than years of counseling and therapy. We provide marriage help to break through impossible problems. Our exercises put couples through progressive drills. Each drill builds upon the next, combined to dramatically impact marriages.

Married couples are amazed how our intense marriage encounter has changed their lives. The Marriage Boot Camp helps couples make really tough decisions. We can’t promise to save every marriage, but we do make this promise: Whether couples stay together or not, there is a peaceful outcome because everyone is able to release bitterness and resentment during the seminar.

A Marriage Seminar

The Marriage Boot Camp is much more than a Marriage Seminar. We believe that you must change people before you can change a marriage. Spouses are challenged to work on their own baggage. We will work on your mate, while you work on yourself. The results are amazing. When two people grow and mature, then marriages follow along and are transformed.

Our success rate is phenomenal because this isn’t marriage counseling or a boring workshop. The Marriage Boot Camp is an experience that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

Strengthen Your Marriage

Your relationship does not have to be in trouble to attend a Marriage Boot Camp. Many happily married couples, engaged couples, or those seeking to work proactively on their relationship attend. We offer valuable conflict resolution and communication tools to strengthen relationships against future trials and turmoil.

Marriage Retreat Cost

What will be my Cost? Our seminar fee is remarkably low for four days of training. Your cost to attend is only $1200 per couple and many times we have partial scholarships. Our Seminar cost tab answers more questions regarding financial assistance.

Life Enrichment Boot Camp was one of the most amazing experiences of my life and one of the greatest gifts I have ever received, only topped my Salvation and my children! It has been a life altering event that I will forever cherish.

I learned to forgive and love myself and got rid of all the baggage I carried.

N. J. from Dallas

The Marriage Boot Camp freed me of the concern and worry of my parents and sister to supporting my marriage. The seminar allowed me to forgive these 3 people (something that's been needed badly for too long!)

Horace from Atlanta

Before I went to Bootcamp, I had no boundaries. I didn't know I could make boundaries and enforce them. But, going through the Bootcamp helped me realize I have the power to do just that. I don't have to acquiesce to the demands of others. I have my own desires and needs that are worthy of being met (not at the expense of others' feelings but in a healthy way). I feel so much healthier!

Brenda, Dallas, TX

Thank you, SO MUCH, Jim and Elizabeth! In watching the "The Aftermath" episode.... I saw Julian dyad. There was SO MUCH Drama this season, I only caught tidbits of proof that there was an underlying foundation given to my husband and I at our BootCamp. I am so happy to have been able to witness the changes in Jeff, Tasha, Sophia, & Shaun. My husband and I could physically see the pain and weight and freedom lifted from these four around the "forgiveness" episode... Often we'' laugh or get worried and say "OMG! David didn't let us get away with that crap!!!" I'm so glad we can say we're BootCamp survivors and can truly see the hard work working (not just what is necessary to assure the same "message" TV demands... Trust me.. If it wasn't for season 1.. I never would have found and attended bootcamp in Burbank when We needed you most).. god works miracles... Though I see peace in Gloria.. That woman needs to let others baggage be there's!!!

The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp has been so life changing for me. I have finally forgiven myelf of all my past mistakes and sins. I know how to love and how to be loved. I had such "walls" around my heart that I would only let people get within arms reach of me, this is including myself. I am FREE!! Free from fear, anxiety, other peoples dissatisfaction with me, rejection, the fear that I was unloveable.

Pamela from Atlanta, GA

The Marriage Boot Camp has changed my life! This is such a cliche, I know, but it's true!! It's amazing what can change in just a few days. On Wednesday my husband and I were getting divorced and by Saturday we are planning our re-committment ceremony! We got rid of all the baggage weighing us down and underneath it all we found we really did have the love we needed after all! Thanks for giving us the skills we need to continue on the right path to success in our marriage!

Patty from Odessa TX

Where to begin? My husband & I attended, KNOWING we only needed some "tweaking". I knew what he needed to do to make out marriage trust & communication better. I had dealt with MY past and was okay. OMGoodness! We trusted the process and allowed each other to work on ourselves (even though we each thought we didn't really need any personal work). We learned such useful skills and tools that we are both beaming and sharing with as many people as we can that this Marriage Boot Camp is the best thing you can do as a couple!

Robin, Hampton, VA

The Life Enrichment Boot Camp helped me to receive freedom from some things that had been vexing me from my past. I recommend it to everyone.

Arnella from Dallas, TX

This was the most incredible, life changing event I've ever experienced. I truly believe this Boot Camp should be a requirement for every marriage. This experience leaves you feeling not only enriched, but empowered. The Boot Camp is not easy in any sense of the word and is named appropriately! Just remember, anything in life that is of great value takes WORK. The outcome of this Boot Camp is a wonderful life altering experience that leaves you feeling a hundred pounds lighter with a true, sincere smile in your heart and the knowledge and tools to continue this feeling for life. The bonds formed with my new friends is something I will always treasure. Thank God, he led me to this empowering group. Thank you David, Jim, and Everyone!
