GTD specializes in God-awesome overnight getaways we call retreats. Our aim is to supply a trip that is both exciting and spiritually powerful. We will plan, prepare, and provide a Christ centered outdoor "playcation" that will refresh your heart, revive your soul, and renew your spirit! Pastors & group leaders 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!!
A BRIEF NOTE ABOUT GTD'S PUBLIC RETREATS
Throughout the year GTD provides various PUBLIC Retreats that are open to the general public. PUBLIC Retreats 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 retreat at an affordable rate. Listed here are some examples of public events provided through our Retreat Program. You can find an exciting PUBLIC EVENT that fits your level of adventure by clicking onto our Calendar link. Enjoy!

MOST POPULAR PRIVATE RETREAT
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), & an outdoor movie.
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 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. 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!
