We, the Men of The Leadership Council, are excited and pleased to announced the selection of Camp Round Meadow in the Catoctin Mountain Park (in our Nation's National Park system) near Thurmont, Maryland as the setting of our 2015 Chesapeake Men's Gathering! We have confirmed reservations from the National Park Service for this beautiful campground.
Camp Round Meadow is a group camp featuring 4 dorms sleeping 30 men and youth each and a dining hall seating 120 people. Additional facilities include a gym with a basketball court and wooden floor, a small outdoor gazebo, a conference room, and other rooms for small groups.
We cordially invite men, and boys and youth with men, to join us at our Gathering the weekend of Friday through Sunday, September 18, 19, & 20, 2015.

We invite you to join us for the 25th Annual Chesapeake Men's Gathering. Established in 1990, this powerful weekend retreat has brought together thousands of men to share our dreams, discuss our challenges, and rediscover the fire that motivates us and drives our lives. Some may remember this as the Buffalo Gap Men's Gathering. Men of all ages and walks of life are welcome.
This retreat offers a time for men to come together in friendship and brotherhood, share our joys, discuss our challenges, and rediscover the fire that motivates us and drives our lives.
During the weekend we take time to deeply explore and celebrate what it means to be man. We ask important and tough questions, have fun, enjoy camaraderie and experience true and genuine connection to other men. This is an opportunity for deep personal growth and spiritual renewal. It is a place to celebrate all that it means to be a man.
This year's theme will be "Now that I‘ve come this far, where the hell am I." All too often we hide behind a self made fašade or mask. In a safe and special community of our peers we will offer the opportunity to discuss and share the good and beautiful qualities that make us what we really are and what gives us hope, motivation and renewal.
We ask only one thing....that you bring your passion, wisdom and most authentic self.
Our own Paul Scribner recently sat down to talk with you about his experiences at our Men's Gatherings!

If you are interested in being part of a community of powerful and authentic men seeking to become their best selves and make a difference in the world, then this is the place for you. We come together in friendship and for personal growth, connection, sharing of our gifts, all in a beautiful and natural setting. Boys ages 5 and older, in the guardianship of a man, are welcome.
"When my son was born I got to thinking, 'Where can I go where my son will have other supportive men to mentor him? I can't do this by myself!' I remembered hearing about the Men's Gathering and decided to take my son when he turned 5. He's now 13, and not only has he wanted to go back every year since, but I've found it's just as important to me! Nowhere else have we found such an amazing community of genuine, supportive men who really care."
