Get Off The Concrete – Men’s Summer Gathering

Get Off The Concrete is an annual summer gathering for men already involved in men’s work. Hosted by Essentially Men each February it is a four-day land based event held at a remote forest site on the coast North of Auckland.


Secondary school aged boys and young men are welcome to attend with family members or friends.

This is not a gathering for men who are new to men’s work. A prerequisite is to have attended Essentially Men or some similar event that promotes trust and connection between men in a structured manner.

Recognising the need for men to also connect with each other during winter inspired our annual Heartbeat Midwinter Men’s Gathering.
