ABOUT THE BOOT CAMPS
The Boot Camp program is an intense, interactive, 4-day healing experience equivalent to 2 years of individual psychotherapy.
The Marriage & Life Enrichment Boot Camp combine to create the perfect blend of relationship and individual work to give you a transformative experience like no other. Most consider the Boot Camp one of the top ten experiences of their lives!
Our success rate with couples is phenomenal! Research proves it! In a longitudinal study of 62 couples on the brink of divorce who left the Boot Camp together, here's what we found - 80% of these couples were still together and rated themselves "happily married" after two years!

THE MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP IS UNIQUE
The Marriage Boot Camp is a unique blend of proven tools that is active, deep and fast-paced. You will never be bored!

YOU will be an active participant in your healing journey and will come away with the tools to create the life you've always wanted!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
You will learn to communicate effectively, to resolve conflict in a productive way, to put the past in the past and forgive. We show you how to co-parent in a way that is best for the children and we bring you the latest and greatest research on how to improve your sex life. Most importantly, you will discover WHO YOU ARE and have a ton of fun in the process.
THERE IS HOPE FOR YOUR BROKEN MARRIAGE!
Get rid of your baggage!
Heal Your Broken Marriage!
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp is designed for individuals to work on themselves, but you can come as a couple if you want to do this together. We expect everyone to give 100% and If you do, you will come away transformed!
Get the Personal Attention You Need!
On average, we have available one facilitator for every six attendees so you will get plenty of personal attention.
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp is the night time portion of the Marriage Boot Camp. Marriage Boot Camp couples are mixed together with the night time individuals for maximum benefit.
We know that you don't do life one-on-one in front of a therapist so the Boot Camp is designed to create the most realistic community experience possible.
THIS is the best way to grow and heal!
