Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has had to be postponed. It will be rescheduled for the fall. Apologies to all for any inconvenience.
Join us for the first ever Wekiwa Wilderness Retreat, from Friday February 2nd to Sunday, February 4th. This retreat is a unique opportunity to learn more about the Wekiva basin, its wildlife and the environment and immerse yourself in it for three days of learning and fun!
Location and Accomodations
The retreat is being held at the Youth Camp in Wekiwa Springs State Park among some of the most pristine Sandhill habitat to be found anywhere in the Southeastern U.S.
Participants have the choice to camp out in their own tents, stay in cabins with bunk beds or leader cabins that have their own facilities. All meals are provided from the meet and greet dinner on Friday night to the farewell lunch in Sunday.
Lots of Fun and Educational Activities
A varied and full program has been arranged with several of the activities repeated during the retreat so that everyone should be able to participate in all of them. However, you don’t have to participate in them all if you don’t want and you can just enjoy the trails, the spring, Wekiva river and spectacular sceneries.
Activities include yoga and tai chi, guided birding and wildflower hikes, guided canoe trips, night hikes, basic survival techniques, edible Florida, presentations about Florida’s critters, campfire singalongs and much more. There will also be some very special not to be missed
