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.

I came to the Life Enrichment Boot Camp feeling stressed, aimless and displaced in life. I was carrying a lot of guilt and lacking self worth. Because of the seminar I am confident and free to make positive steps and progress in my life.

The marriage workshop taught me how to really forgive with my heart and not just with words and to be able to love again.

The Boot Camp helped me to drop all the baggage from the past and learn to live. It has brought my marriage back on track and helped to develop a deeper and stronger relationship with my wife than ever before.

Bruce from McKinney, Texas

The Boot Camp broke down a wall of ?toughness? and pride that had hindered my ability to submit to those in any kind of authority. Also, I learned more about what my husband truly needs from me & how to actually change in order to give it.

Tina from Dallas

The Life Enrichment Boot Camp is like nothing I have ever experienced. This is an event that every person on the planet should take advantage of. I have been through years of therapy and have never gained such remarkable insight and changed in such a short period of time. This has been a life changing event for me and I am cannot get over how free it has left me feeling, thank God for Jim, David, Dana and Emmett and all the trainers.

Vanessa from Brooklyn, NY

The Boot Camp did two things for me. It brought me back to God and it brought me closer to my fianc̩. We have been given the tools to have a successful marriage. I can honestly say I am ready for marriage.

Crystal from Mabank

What an amazing few days! My husband and I attended the marriage boot camp to add some fun back into our relationship, being in our late 60s, we were kind of settled into a rut that wasn't much fun. We got so much more than we ever thought possible for someone our ages, lots of life and love to enjoy, laughter and intimacy reborn for us. We both are so grateful to the directors and trainers for this wonderful life uplifting experience. We made new friends of all ages and our bond is strong.

I just wanted to write you and thank you and everyone at the show for helping us. Especially Dr. Phil for sending us to the Marriage Boot Camp! It was obvious with 11 marriages that I had to work on something but Dr. Phil said something that hit me really hard. We both had unresolved issues from our past that would have killed our relationship. I will never as long as I live forget the moment when I forgave God and myself. Since I was a very little girl I have always missed "My Husband". That is how I explained it to people my whole life. That day with Jim and Elizabeth the churning stopped, the loneliness stopped, and I could hear God's answers more clearly.


Without a doubt a life changing experience for me and my wife. The tools we learned will make us better spouses, parents and friends. Watching how many lives were changed for the better in the four days I was there was as an absolutely unforgettable experience. David, Dana, Cliff and Jeani are amazing and we can't thank you enough.
