An annual event for men to renew their strength in Christ


BASECAMP is an annual event for men who want to know God better. Since 1997, men of all generations and from across denominations have taken time out together to hear God speak. Each year, men have encouraged each other to run the race with their eyes fixed on Jesus.

Choose the format that works for you: 

  • a six-hour recharge in Sydney;
  • an overnight weekend retreat in the Mountains; or
  • join us online from wherever you are!

Our 2023 Theme

‘Boys don’t cry.’

One of the many toxic and damaging principles of a past era.

A call to suppress our tears in fear of being labelled as a lesser man.

A truth producing men with unprocessed grief…until it finally explodes in anger or anxiety.

We feel ashamed of our sadness, so we channel it into madness, causing further damage to our relationships with God and one another.

At BASECAMP, we recognise that this culture needs to change.

Contemporary culture would have men think that ‘standing on their own two feet’ is the way to be man, whereas I find it incredibly powerful to see so many Christian men, by their mere presence at BASECAMP, stand and say that relying on Jesus is God’s way to be man.”
