PROGRAM: Day Trips


GTD's Day Trip Program is made up of half day and full day getaways that are designed to revitalize your spirit. Never underestimate the importance of play, fun, & recreation. Day Trips are a great way to involve new people, get some needed diversion, and have a whole lot of Christ centered fun!




A BRIEF NOTE ABOUT GTD'S PUBLIC DAY TRIPS
Throughout the year GTD provides various PUBLIC Day Trips that are open to the general public. PUBLIC Day Trips allow individuals or small groups (usually less than 15 people) to participate without needing a sponsoring organization to reserve a trip. It's a great ways to experience a God-awesome getaway at an affordable rate. Listed here are a few examples of public events provided through our Day Trip Program. You can find an exciting PUBLIC EVENT that fits your level of adventure by clicking onto our Calendar link. Enjoy! (For additional events that only last one day see our Team Synergy & Exertion Programs.)

ABOUT PRIVATE DAY TRIPS
GTD Day Trips can be reserved for groups of 15 participants or more. GTD will plan, prepare, and provide a custom made day trip getaway for your group! A REGULAR Day Trip lasts up to 4 hours and includes 1 activity, a devotion, and 1 meal. A MEGA Day Trip lasts up to 8 hours and includes 2 activities, a devotion, and 2 meals. (*PRIVATE Day Trips do not include transportation)



PEAK SEASON: Jan - Dec  (GTD's Day Trip Program takes place all year long.)

We offer Day Trips to a variety of places in central Florida such as city parks, national forests, scenic rivers, and hundreds of other potential public land locations.

TYPES OF GROUPS
GTD offers Day Trips to all types of groups such as church groups, youth groups (children, middle & high school ages), Sunday school groups, athletic groups, sport's teams, college groups, young adult groups, adult groups, retired groups, men's groups, women's groups, couples, families, leadership, businesses & more.




DAY TRIP ACTIVITIES TO CHOOSE FROM
Canoeing, mini adventure races, caving, day hiking, geocaching (scavenger hunt with GPS), inner tubing, snorkeling, team building, island games & cookout, team sports, group games, & service projects.


MOST POPULAR PRIVATE ADVENTURE TRIP
Our most popular Day Trip for private groups is a day of canoeing. With so many incredible waterways in Florida, it's a great way to experience the great outdoors!




ALSO POSSIBLE - GTD "NIGHT TRIPS"
GTD can also provide a night event 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!). Outdoor Movies can work as a Regualr Day Trip or it can be the 2nd part of a MEGA Day Trip. 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 to remove inappropriate language & sexual content.


TEAM GTD + DAY TRIPS = GOD AWESOME FUN!
For TEAM GTD assembling a Day Trip is more than just randomly setting up a few activities. We want to create a getaway that you love. We want to create a Day Trip that is exciting & fun. We want your first impression of your Day Trip to be, "Wow! Sweet! I love this activity! This place is awesome!" Those kind of responses are the kind of responses we get when we set up a Day Trip 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, physical renewal, outdoor dining, and fun times all 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!
