Black Bear Camp Men's Retreat

Lodge amidst trees on a sunny day
10565 US Hwy 280 West
PO Box 210
Waverly, AL 36879


Dear friends and members,

Effective immediately, Black Bear Camp is closed. Members who have recently purchased a silver membership will be given a pro-rated refund upon request. Please send the request to since the Black Bear Camp domain may not remain up for long. Be sure to include your name and address and silver membership number from your membership card.

Although we had intended to remain open until the day after Labor Day, the personal stress of operating the camp is damaging my and Wade's relationship. And the large increase in the camp insurance premiums for 2015 was the straw that broke the camel's back.

We have enjoyed our sixteen year and three month run and will forever treasure the good friends and good times.

Sometime later this year the property will be put up for sale after we give somewhat of a face lift. We will try to find a buyer willing to re-open the camp. We will keep the yahoo group open so we can send out any updates on that front.

Of all the things I have done in my life, providing this resource for other gay men is one of the proudest.

But as a wise man said, everything which cannot last forever will end. For Black Bear Camp that time has come.

Good bye and good will,


John and Wade
