Let The Adventure Begin

Sign Up For Boot Camp

Unless you're the type that likes to skip to the end of the book, it took a lot for you to make it to this page. The topics discussed on this site make for difficult reading. Yet they are vitally important.

This Man Up Project is not easy for us either. We typically spend a minimum of 40 hours per week just on research and training protocols. During Boot Camp it encompassess all waking hours. But we are on a mission. We don't do this for money, fame, or because its the best thing we could find to put our hands to. We do this because we have a passion to see manhood restored in our land, and to see fathers and sons doing manly things together once more. We plan only three Boot Camps per year because we need the research time, as well as time to develop video and blog resources for our graduates.

You are here on the signup page. You will not find any pressure sales. No teasers. No gimmicks. No photos of me standing next to TV celebrities. No free ebooks in exchange for your email address. In fact, we do no advertising at all. The truth is, we don't want the kind of men who make decisions and responds based on fleeting emotions. We want decisive men who wish to participate out of a heart-felt desire.

Our Boot Camp is for men only, preferably fathers and sons, limited to 8 only. Yes, we could do classes of 30 or so, but we want to give individual attention and ensure everyone leaves with a clear understanding of the problems, along with a plan to confront, combat and conquer them. We would rather see strong, rock-solid commitments from 8 convinced men than so-so commitments from a crowd of men.

Here are the details:

1. 2018 Boot Camp Dates:

  • June 2018 (specific days to be announced soon)
  • July 2018 (specific days to be announced soon)
  • August 2018 (specific days to be announced soon)
2. Duration:
The Boot Camp runs from Monday 0800 til Saturday 1200.

3. Transportation:
You are responsible for transportation. If you fly in, we will provide a free shuttle from the Gulfport/Biloxi International Airport to our facility.

4. Prerequisites:
Labwork with a minimum of the following tests:

  • LDL Cholesterol
  • HDL Cholestrol
  • Triglycerides
  • Fasting Blood Glucose

For your safety, there are minimum health requirements to participate in some of the physical activity as well as certain fitness assessment tests. You will be emailed a Health History Questionnaire and Lifestyle Questionnaire a month before camp begins. These questionnaires are important to help develop physical fitness programs. All information will be held in strict confidence and will NEVER be shared.

5. What's included:

  • Meals (healthy, home-cooked, nutritious)
  • Bunks (sheets and pillows provided)
  • Cabin rental and Kayak fee at Seminary Canoe Rental
  • All graduates receive access to transcripts of all sessions in the graduate blog
  • All graduates receive a kewl certificate and t-shirt
  • All graduates are eligible for advanced courses

6. What to bring:
Besides your normal attire for classroom or sleeping, bring swimwear and exercise clothing. Mississippi summers are very hot and humid. Bring your basic toiletries.

7. What's prohibited:
Cell phone/tablet usage during sessions. There will be alloted time for this. This is a strict policy so you are being told in advance.

8. Price:
The cost of the Boot Camp is $1200/person. However, if a father brings his son(s) [ages 12-25 only], the rate will be half for each son. You will spend that much for a week in Orlando at the Theme Parks. At least you will leave here with more to take home than just a photo with a mouse.

9. Refunds:
Payment is non-refundable unless your slot(s) can be be filled by an equal number on standby.
