A Fantastic School Retreat Location in Florida
Whether they are in elementary, middle, or high-school, students get excited at the prospect of a school trip. We are in contact with school administrators from all over the state that are looking to find a great location for their students to enjoy themselves, make memories, and learn to appreciate nature.
Orange Springs Retreat is a fantastic school group retreat location in Florida for your elementary, middle or high school’s next class trip. A serene 100-acre retreat center that also serves as a premier children’s summer camp. A serene location close to Gainesville and just outside the Ocala National Forest that sits on the pristine shores of our private spring-fed lake.
We offer many outdoor activities that school aged children would be ecstatic about trying.
Canoeing, paddle boating, or kayaking are a few of many possible outdoor activities that the school kids will love. We have wide open sports fields for team games as well as indoor/outdoor basketball courts and four tennis courts perfect for school group retreat activities. We can also arrange facilitation of our high and low ropes courses to meet your school group or school’s leadership development/team building needs.
Your school’s group will have exclusive access and will be the only group using the entire location during the event. All meals are provided by our retreat center staff.
School administrators are always trying to balance fun and education when approving trips. Bringing the class to Orange Springs Retreat can offer that great mix of education and fun that truly makes school something worthwhile for kids.
There are a number of meeting rooms of different sizes that can be used for lectures, break-out sessions, or even crafting. There is a theater and lecture room, equipped with an overhead projector for movies or presentations. All buildings are air conditioned.
