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.

The Marriage Boot Camp opened me up to my own personal hurts and problems and gave me strength to move forward in my relationships with my wife, family, friends and especially with God.

Garry from Dallas

I use to define myself as a stubborn, angry and empty person. After boot camp I now define myself as a happy, free, valuable, loving and forgiving person!!! I walked into the boot camp desperate to find out why I am so angry and empty. I found out why and so much more!!! I was able to forgive those that have hurt me, including myself. I am the old me again but, so much better!!! Friends say I glow and have a peace about me. For the first time in a very long time, I am looking forward to my life! Thank you to all of the Directors & Trainers for helping me get my life back! God Bless all of you!

The Marriage seminar helped me to deal with issues I was aware. It also helped me discover and resolve issues I didn?t know were holding me back from experiencing all that God had for me and my marriage. -

Walt from Dallas

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.

I learned to forgive and was able to receive God's forgiveness.

Diann from Dallas

For the first time in many years, I got to open myself up and look at what was in my heart. I got to put everyone else's opinions aside and look at what I want and need. Thanks Jim and David and the staff at the Marriage Retreat for bringing the life back to me.

Jeff from Vancouver

My husband and I would like to thank all the people who put so much into making the marriage boot camp a success. We have never been this close before and we are friends for the 1st time. We both can't believe how tired we are after the 4 days, but it is a good tired. I feel married for the 1st time in 6 years. My husband is a new man and he understands me more. We have opened up to a new level of respect and communication. We will continue to use the tools to make this a long term success. Thanks again Marriage Boot camp. You guys are God sent!

Omeka from Orlando,Florida

I attended the Marriage Seminar Boot Camp a couple of weeks ago. I will admit when I attended it I didn't believe I could get anything out of it that I hadn't already heard. What my wife and I found out is we don't treat each other very nice and we never saw it. This is a wonderful opportunity for any married couple wherever they are at in their marriage to build on the relationship and make it better. For marriages that are in trouble the Boot Camp can bring tremendous healing and a chance to save it.

Chris from Dallas, TX

I worked hard for years trying to achieve all the goals I had set for myself thinking they would make me happy. I couldn't figure out why I was still feeling sad, alone and afraid to let anyone really know the real me. Bootcamp really opened my eyes and my heart to what had been holding me back all that time. I found the person I had been trying to portray. It's not even a matter of trying anymore. I am the person I have always wanted to be.

Jamie, Houston, Tx

When I walked into Marriage Boot Camp I was expecting a load of crap. I was very angry and felt forced to be there. After learning about myself and finding Christ and his love for the first time, I would recommend this Boot Camp for anyone.
