A Life-Changing Experience You’ll
Value for a Lifetime

The Marriage Boot Camp is an intense, interactive four-day marriage seminar. We’ve combined therapeutic practices from multiple fields to create the Marriage Boot Camp. We use a combination of mental games, drills, competitions and experiential exercises to raise your awareness and deepen your relationship on every level. Our program’s time and activities are structured in such a way that every moment is used productively to work on your relationship with yourself, your mate and others.

Learn practical skills to build a strong,
meaningful relationship

The Marriage Boot Camp doesn’t take sides or give you advice. By actively participating in each activity and using a series of topics and questions, couples will quickly identify the root cause of their issues then work together and individually to break down the walls of damage. Our Marriage Seminar covers many topics during the program such as communication, conflict resolution, rules for arguing, needs and wants, sexual intimacy and forgiveness to name a few.

Our activities are held in various settings such as big groups, small groups and dyads. By participating in a group setting, you not only learn from a particular game or drill, but you learn from other attendees in the room who may be struggling with similar issues you face today.

The activities promote couples to immediately open the line of communication between one another. All games and drills adhere to a strict timeline and are director facilitated. No note taking is necessary, THIS IS A BOOT CAMP, and every activity is hands on interactive, process oriented and precisely timed. We want you and your spouse to know how to use the Marriage Boot Camp tools upon graduation of the program.  This is hard work.  It’s much tougher than a Christian Marriage Conference or a Marriage Workshops, but the results are much better.

Meet the Directors

Several of the Marriage Boot Camp Directors have experienced the pain of divorce. Their own marital failures have bonded them for the purpose of helping people and reviving marriages. Their painful divorces inspired the creation of The Marriage Boot Camp. Our leadership teams of non-licensed marriage and relationship coaches have more than 60 years of combined experience in Seminar Leadership.
