Conference Registration

The Conference will be held from 4pm Friday, May 26 until 12 noon Monday, May 29, 2017.  The Conference is held at the Mendocino Woodlands Camp, in Mendocino County.  This wonderful camp was built 80 years ago by down-and-out men of the WPA and the CCC during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. It is nestled in 700 acres of pristine redwood forest along the Little North Fork of the Big River, east of Fort Bragg.  The rustic camp with miles of hiking trails has provided local and national men’s groups with an inspiring setting since the 1980’s. (See  We are thrilled to have our conference at Camp Two, the site of profound men’s rituals for over thirty years.  All meals will be catered by Chef Oscar of the Phantom Café. Bring a friend, including young men, fifteen to twenty-five years old, who would benefit from this conference. We anticipate the need to scholarship some of these young men, so please consider a tax-deductible contribution toward the scholarship fund. A registration packet will be emailed to all participants about 10 days before the Conference.

STEP 1: Conference Registration

We will be sending you a packet of detailed information about what to bring, etc, via email. We will also be adding you to the Redwood Men's Center online group (it's a moderated Yahoo group - no spam - that is CLOSED to the general public) so you're kept up to date on Conference happenings and can optionally participate in discussion (or not) following the Conference. You can easily and quietly unsubscribe from that group at any time, but please do wait at least a couple of weeks after the Conference -- you'll be surprised at how valuable the group will be in holding on to the sense of community that comes out of the Conference.
In case we have a question.
