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.

called to be sons—living under god our father v3

J.I. Packer once said, “Adoption is the highest privilege that the gospel offers”. If we have accepted the truth of the Gospel into our lives, we are now sons of God. He is the perfect parent: strong, kind and engaged. When we call God ‘Father’, we don’t have to wonder who we are, or navigate life on our own. God didn’t create us to go it alone; in fact, most of our problems arise when we try to go rogue and rely upon our own strength.

As God’s chosen sons, we have a Father who wants to guide us in His strength, and teach us what it truly means to be a man who is confident in his God-given identity and purpose. This year at BASECAMP, we’ll be challenging you to rise and meet your calling of Sonship.

What a joy it will be to be back together again in the city and mountains! Save the date and start planning your journey to BASECAMP. Here’s a reminder of some of our favourite moments from back in 2019:

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.”
