Wilderness ReBoot


Details on May 1st cancellation decision deadline.

Our desire is to provide a tremendous transition retreat experience for MKs at Wilderness ReBoot. To accomplish this we need a minimum of 8 MKs in attendance as we place a high value on peer learning.

To encourage early registration we are offering a $100 registration discount for those who register on or before May 1st. To qualify for this discount we must receive a minimum registration payment of $300 but encourage participants to send in their Wilderness ReBoot application at the same time.

If by April 30th we have 8 registrants, we’ll run Wilderness ReBoot. If not, we’ll consider cancelling this program.

Once the decision has been made an announcement will be sent out on or before May 15th to all interested parties regarding whether we will be running Wilderness ReBoot.

Who is Blue Bronna, where are they and how do I get there?

Blue Bronna Wilderness Camp is a not-for-profit organization that desires to take you away from the busyness and distractions of life so that you can see the power and majesty of God and meet Jesus Christ in a personal way. BBWC runs two sites southwest of Calgary.  Wilderness ReBoot will take place at their Coat Creek site off Hwy 940 amid the beauty of the foothills of the Canadian Rockies mountain range. 

While each participant is responsible for their own transportation to and from Blue Bronna, if you are travelling from out of province and are arriving by air arrangements for pick-up and drop-off from Calgary airport can be made by contacting the Wilderness ReBoot Director, Ben Reed, as breed@outreach.ca.

Departure on July 4th will be 1pm after eating last lunch together.
