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.

At the Marriage Boot Camp I dug into 50 years of baggage and dumped it. Made a decision and acted upon it to forgive myself.

Robert from Los Angeles

The Marriage seminar helped me to open up and get rid of my hurt. It also helped me to see that I am important and worth loving.

Engaged, good marriage or desperate (like we were)this will be the best investment you can make! You will leave happier and more together than ever. Do NOT hesitate!!

Robbie, SD

My neighbor asked me to go with her to the boot camp and I went in rating my life quality at a 9 (scale 1-10; 10=excellent). I discovered some amazing truths about myself that will definately make a huge impact in my life and to those around me.

Erika, Rockwall, TX

I don't know if you realize how much you helped me! You gave me the warm smiles and acceptance which enabled me to share my innermost fears, pains, and guilt! You helped me do something that I've never done; to seriously forgive. I've never known what it really felt like. I thought that all I had to do was to say it and that was it....you helped me to get to the bottom of my soul and truly forgive and let go of some major issues. I will NEVER forget this past week. Somehow God softened my heart and helped me open it for a major SPRING cleaning! WOW do I feel Good...and guess what? I AM GOOD! My husband and I are good. My little family is good! NOT PERFECT, but good. Our daughter, keeps commenting about us. She teases us for kissing all the time now. She was hugely impressed when my husband and I got into a tiff last night and then actually appologized to each other and kissed (again!!). She smiled and said "So I guess they must have taught you guys how to say I'm sorry?" It really made my heart smile-for us and for her. You are some extremely amazing people and I am so blessed to have met you! God Bless each of you.

The marriage boot camp was miraculous. It transormed my life, saved my marriage and will forever change who I am as a person. I am more equipped to resolve conflict, show love, receive love and make a greater difference in my life and the lives of those around me. The relationships formed during the camp will forever enrich my life with such great support and love - these are my closest friends and I love them and treasure dearly.

David, Rogers AR

The Marriage Boot Camp taught me to be more patient. The workshops inspired me to keep growing.

Rick from Winnipeg

I was referred to the boot camp by a friend in 2004. I was sleeping in his spare room and in bad shape. I was hurting after getting out of a relationship and spiraling down into serious drug and alcohol abuse. My life was miserable, painful and meaningless. I had no expectations from the boot camp and only went so my friend wouldn't throw me out of his home. The only thing I cared about was my next high. After stalling for two months I decided to get clean enough to attend. What happened at the boot camp was a miracle! I realized that my broken heart and drug abuse were the symptoms, not the causes of my problems. I was pushed to look deep inside. When I did, I realized how much my past spiritual damage was holding me back. I was raised in very strict religious home that was very legalistic. I thought I left that behind when I moved out at 17. In reality, I was still carrying all the guilt, shame and rejection around from my childhood. The boot camp helped me process and get rid of that. I was able to open up to God and receive his healing and love in all areas of my life. I would have never believed my life could be as good as it is now. My life has changed direction and the boot camp was the intersection where I made that right turn.

Jon, Dallas, TX

Wow is all I can say. We are an engaged couple with a 5 year history of ups and downs. We decided to go to the Marriage Boot Camp hoping it would help us get past the issues we have and concentrate on growing the love we feel for each other. This retreat was life-changing, and has been the greatest gift for our relationship. We found we are not alone with our issues and learned valulble tools to help us communicate, forgive, love and cherish each other. Not only that, we met the best friends ever! We loved it so much we want to volunteer and sponsor everyone we know. It's incredible for couples and singles! Thank you for changing our lives! The wedding is now on and schedule for August 2008.
