“I feel like every time I come to Man Camp there’s always a takeaway. Something I go home with.”

In the video above, Matt says, “I wanted something profound to happen in my life.” He tells about how he had strayed from his faith, but felt convicted to ground himself again. Maybe you can relate to Matt. Or maybe you’re more like Robert. Robert was very much grounded in his faith and was simply looking for “good messages, good people, and great food.”

Wherever you are spiritually, Man Camp is an opportunity. It’s an opportunity to separate yourself from the routine, to turn down the volume of the world, and speak authentically with other men. Of course there will be tons of fun stuff to do. But that’s not why we do this. The core reason we do this is to help you grow in your journey with Christ. That’s why Man Camp exists. That’s why this CPBC exists. That’s why we want you to join us. So please, journey up to McGregor, MN and give yourself this experience.

Standard Housing

Davis Lake Cabins

The multiple windows on the lakeside of the cabins offer a quaint and picturesque view. Just across from the cabins is a bathhouse. In their secluded location, these cabins are surrounded by gorgeous colors in the fall and near the cross country ski trails in the winter.

Round Lake Cabins

There are eight Round Lake Cabins scattered between Lakeside chapel and the Chapel at Inspiration Point that sleep 82 guests. The cabins have a centrally located bathhouse within a short walking distance. These rustic, heated cabins are a good place to stay year-round.



When we’re not worshipping and listening to great messages, we’ll be trap shooting, grilling, reading, playing cards, climbing, playing basketball, and eating lots of bacon and steak. Seriously, the food is great. Check out pictures from last year’s Men’s Retreat to get a better idea of what to expect!
