The 10 Step Process

 
 
 
Going The Distance Adventure Ministry specializes in God-awesome mini retreats. Our aim is to supply a trip that is both exciting and spiritually powerful. We will plan, prepare, and provide a 1-4 day Christ centered getaway that will refresh your heart, revive your soul, and renew your spirit! Groups (15-60 people) love our events because GTD takes care of all the work. Just tell us what you want, reserve your spot, and show up with your group for your very own Private Retreat... It's that easy!! And individual participants can join us on one of our Public Events offered throughout the year.
 
 


ISLAND RETREATS


FOREST RETREATS

 
 
 
 
PEAK SEASON: Jan - Apr  &  Sep - Dec  |  SLOW SEASON: May - Aug
 GTD's Retreat Program usually takes place during the spring & fall.
 
 
 
 
During our Peak Season (Jan - Apr & Sep - Dec) we offer Retreats to the National Forests of central Florida.
  

  
 
 
 
Throughout the year GTD provides several PUBLIC Retreats. PUBLIC Retreats are a great way for individuals or small groups (groups less than 12 people) to experience a God-awesome retreat at an affordable rate. PUBLIC Retreats allow for individuals to participate without needing a sponsoring organization to reserve a trip. You can find an exciting PUBLIC event that fits your level of adventure by clicking onto our UPCOMING EVENTS link.

(*PRIVATE RETREATS DO NOT INCLUDE: Road Transportation)

MOST POPULAR PRIVATE ADVENTURE TRIP: Our most popular Retreat for private groups is a 2 night / 2 day trip (Fri night - Sun afternoon) with the following adventures: canoeing, adventure races (or team sports), & outdoor movies.
 
ALSO INCLUDED AT NO EXTRA CHARGE: GTD also provides the option for your group to watch an Outdoor Movie on the "big screen" (OK, actually it's a big bed sheet, but it works really good!). Imagine watching a great flick on a big screen while in the middle of the forest as you pop popcorn & make smores over the campfire! It's a great experience! And we are happy to say that we use movies that have been professionally edited by Clean Play DVD to remove inappropriate language & sexual content.
 

ABOUT OUR BASE CAMP
For TEAM GTD assembling a Base Camp is more than just randomly setting up a few tents, chairs and a mess hall. We want to create an environment that you love. We want to create a Base Camp that is inviting & fun. We want your first impression of your Base Camp to be, "Wow! Sweet! I love hammocks! Who wants to play volleyball! You've got cots, cool! This place is awesome!" Those kind of responses are the kind of responses we get when we set up a Base Camp The GTD Way. The GTD Way is deliberate, creative, functional and fun. As TEAM GTD our objective is to create a temporary playground that promotes spiritual growth, recreation, community, sound sleep, physical renewal, outdoor dining, fun times, adequate hygiene and warmth while preserving a feel of being in God's amazing creation (which reveals the evidence of God). We hope you love it as much as we do!
