Join the Order of Naucratius for the second annual Hog Camp hunting retreat! We will immerse ourselves in the care of creation by learning ethical methods to hunt, butcher, process, and cook wild game from God’s abundance.
Hog Camp is intentionally designed for a broad range of hunting skills. We turn the Brady Property into a Hunting Village where we eat great food, laugh, learn, pray, and hunt. We also welcome participants who chose NOT to hunt! Because of the number of participants and our varying skill levels, this will be a very controlled hunt (loner cowboys and rogue participants should find another trip.)
Participants will have the opportunity to hunt each day (like fishing… there are no guarantees and “success” does not mean “harvest”). We have professionals who will help teach us how to break down a wild hog and turn it into food. Friends and first-timers are welcome.
Accommodations will be rustic. This is a camping trip! You should expect to pack along a cot and/or a tent. We have a hay loft for sleeping, access to two bathrooms, a port-a-john, and one shower. All food is provided.
Participants must find their own transportation to and from our site. If you are flying in, we recommend flying into Baton Rouge.
All ages are welcome to participate. Participants under 18 must be accompanied and supervised by their responsible adult.
Space is limited and may fill before the deadline!

NOTE ON LICENSING All participating hunters must acquire a Pig License from the State of Louisiana prior to the retreat. This requires the applicant to prove they’ve completed a hunter’s safety certification. This can either be a pre-existing certificate from their home state or the hunter must complete the course prior to applying (and this takes time!). The cost to purchase the pig license is $65.
The cost to participate in Naucratius Hog Camp is $500/hunter and $350/non-hunter. This includes food but does not include airfare or hunting license.
The deadline to register is February 14th. Space is limited to 25 participants and may fill before the deadline!
