IGNITE FALL CAMPING RETREAT
GTD's Fall Retreat - IGNITE - is an exciting camping retreat located on a secluded group campsite in central Florida.
 
Every fire must first start with a spark and IGNITE will be that spark in your rekindled passion to follow Christ. Like a match being struck, IGNITE will inflame your heart with a renewed passion in your walk with God and fire you up in your daily devotions!
 
And if that wasn't hot enough, IGNITE will also incinerate your fears & burn up your burdens as we embark on adventurous activities and explore the majesty of God's creation. We will also explore the consuming fire of God's presence through daily devotions, worship, and nightly Impact Points around the camp fire.
 
In our time together you will grow closer to God, make new friends, and build new memories! Don't get burned out, get fired up by joining us on IGNITE and watch God do something "ablazing" in your life!

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. At 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!

OUR CANOES:
Mohawk has been building fiberglass canoes since 1964. Only the latest in construction techniques are used in building their up-to-date contemporary designs. GTD uses the Mohawk Blazer 16 which is an excellent general purpose canoe. The shallow-arched bottom offers good stability, yet a fine entry, and a little "V" gives it ample tracking ability. It is designed to accommodate the needs of the beginner, as well as the seasoned paddler. Ideal for cruising. camping or just recreational fun.
BLAZER 16 - Length: 16', Beam at gunwale: 36", Beam at 4" waterline: 33.5", Depth: at bow 18",
at center 12.75", at stern 18".approx. weight: 67lbs. Estimated capacity: 700 lbs.
