What is Roundup?
Men’s Roundup is a Christian men’s camping retreat and conference held in a forested mountaintop setting at Camp Tadmor in Lebanon, Oregon where men are encouraged to believe, obey, connect, and lead. Roundup features an inspiring primary speaker, well-known guest artists and musicians, biblical teachers leading action workshop breakout sessions, great food, and opportunities for guys to worship, learn, grow, and connect with other guys. Roundup is also a wonderful opportunity to appreciate God’s beautiful creation, hang out with friends, and break a sweat in the Roundup Race or other sports competitions and outdoor recreation activities.

- Yurts will also be available this year. They can accommodate 10 men each.
- Yurts will be included in the cabin drawing. If your church is assigned a yurt and your check was for 11 men, you will be reimbursed $125.00 as yurts accommodate one less man.

Please do not send individual registrations with the cabin drawing requests.
- Cabin reservation requests will be placed in a lottery drawing held June 15, 2016.
- Groups will be notified within a week with results of the drawing. Complete instructions will be mailed to churches that receive cabin assignments.
- Unreserved cabins available after June 17th will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
If your group did not meet the cabin drawing deadline, please contact us to find out if any cabins or yurts remain.
If you have questions regarding the cabin drawing, please feel free to call Shirley Radford, Men’s Roundup Registrar, at 503-669-1515 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Churches & Pastors:
We want to encourage men to come with other men from their churches when possible and think Roundup weekend is a great opportunity for pastors to connect with guys from their church and pray together. Pastors may attend Men's Roundup for free if 10 men from their church register (even if your church did not reserve a cabin or yurt).
Finding a Camping Space:
Tent and RV spaces are first-come, first-serve. You are welcome to come to Roundup one day early, on Thursday, to reserve an area for your group ($5 per head early arrival fee until 8:00pm and $5 per unoccupied spot saved with equipment). The earlier you arrive, the easier it will be to locate a camping space and set up your camp. Volunteers will be at the registration tent to direct you to possible camping spaces if you would like them to. Carpooling helps ensure there are great camping spaces for everyone.
RV Spaces & Electrical Outlets:
There are a few options for RVers at Roundup. To get a an RV spot, you will likely need to come on Thursday for the “land rush” that begins at noon.
• There are 8 full hookup (electricity, water, sewer) RV spaces at the newly constructed Meadow Ridge facility near the camping loop and high ropes course, but 1 may be reserved for staff.
• There are some RV spaces with water (and maybe electricity) past the giant swing, near the bottom of the camping loop where there is a bathroom.
• RVs can go other places that aren’t marked as reserved for other purposes, but there wouldn’t be electricity, water, or sewer.
• In the Meadow Ridge area there is a sewer dump near the access road for dumping dark water, etc.
There is something to do for everyone while staying on the mountain including:
- Team Roundup Race (a challenging obstacle course)
- Photography Contest (bring your camera)
- Tadmor Classic 5K

All participants and guests eat at Tadmor. The meals are fixed by a professional chef and are a true highlight of the weekend. No portion is too small and it must be experienced to be believed. Of course, many men choose to prepare their own meals and extend their times of fellowship. We encourage this, but the camp food is beyond belief.
Weather at Tadmor during the first part of September has historically been beautiful with temperatures ranging from 50s at night to the mid 90s during the day with no rain and low humidity. However, we have been wet in the past! It is best to plan ahead for anything. Long-range forecasts up to a week in advance are generally correct. It’s best to check.
Other Things To Know While at Camp:
- Meal Bands - You may purchase meal bands at the registration tent. Bands must be worn at all times while in the camp.
- First Aid Station - This is located at the Health Center, next to the Dining Hall.
- Seat Saving - We ask that you limit seat saving to you and one friend. Please do not save sections or rows. Your courtesy for others is appreciated.
- Camp Fires - Because of the normally high fire danger, Tadmor has a no camp fire policy. We thank you for not having camp fires.
- Smoking - While we discourage smoking at Tadmor, the area immediately in front of the Tadmor office (up the hill from the Forum) is reserved for those who feel the need to smoke. Please use the receptacles provided. Smoking in other locations will fall under the no camp fire policy.
- Drinking - Drinking of alcoholic beverages at Tadmor is prohibited. Thank you for considering others.
- Noise - Although we encourage men to stay up late with their friends at Roundup, we ask you to keep the noise down, including turning off generators, between 10pm and 6am as it is easy to hear noise from far away when tent camping. Thanks!

Additional seating for the venue is outside of the Forum on a hillside with decent viewing of the stage area.

• CPAP users in tents and RVs can also bring an electrical extension chord and connect to it in the Forum Field below the registration tent, above the forested area by the prayer chapel.
• There is a staffed nurses’ station near the Evergreen Dining area, but the nearest hospital is twenty miles away.
• If you have other medical concerns, you can contact us at
