DEPOSIT: Clay Play Stay Spring Camp Retreat 2024
Clay, Play, and Stay under the oaks in beautiful Keystone Heights, Florida.
4 nights, March 6-10, 2024.
Arrive after 3 on Wednesday, depart after breakfast on Sunday. If you have a later flight out, you will be welcome to relax at Kira's ranch for the day- just a 15 minute drive away. We also will provide a fun list of things to do in the area if you've got some time to kill.
ALL INCLUSIVE: Your stay, the retreat, classes, demos and supplies, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included. Just bring your pasta machine and your favorite tools and relax!
We will have two off-site dinner experiences - one at Kira's ranch, and the other to enjoy the local cuisine.
Full price will start at $850 when we announce all options- we need to know how many are coming and place the deposit to secure the camp, first.
DayTripper rate will include 9-5 access, classes, supplies, lunch, and a farewell dinner at Kira's on Saturday. $375, limited spaces so we can keep this retreat on the intimate side.
Payment plans will be available, and your space will become non-refundable but transferable to someone else as of Feb 1. Retreat must be paid in full by Feb 1, 2024.
Questionnaire will be coming soon - we want to know your food preferences, if you have a friend or two you prefer to bunk with, etc.
Our stay is "summer camp style" featuring bunkhouses with rustic shared bedrooms and bathrooms.
We do not have "singles" at the camp, but you may come with friends and secure your own bunkhouse.
We will NOT be putting more than 6 people in a "bunkhouse" so none of us have to climb up to top bunks, unless you want to relive your camp days and do so :)
There is an ADA Accessible cabin available if you have mobility issues, need a ramp, use a scooter or walker, etc.
We will have a discussion area available so you can make travel plans with friends who are attending beforehand.
You MAY bring a tent and camp out if you'd like to, and limited self-contained (no hookups) RV parking is also available if you prefer to travel that way.
The area is surrounded by lots of AirBnb's and a quaint Inn if you prefer to stay offsite or have more luxurious accommodations, a list will be provided and you will pay the DayTripper rate for the retreat.
Airports: JAX is about an hour and 15 minutes, GNV is about 35 minutes.
The camp is 87 acres of lakeside beauty, and the weather in March should be pleasant and not too hot. Our cabins have decks facing the lake. Keystone Heights will surprise you with it's forests, it's not typical tropical beach Florida.
We will have full use of the entire camp, including the very large light-filled dining hall for our clay space which means once we set up, we can clay all day and night 24/7. (We will use half of the hall for eating, and the other half for our clay-space)!
Three days of classes and demos are planned, and much more info will be provided once we finalize and photograph the projects:
Minimal Waste Kaleidoscope Caning with Jan Montarsi
Sculptural Jewelry with Suzanne Ivester, "The Polymer Chef"
Mixed-Media Mosaic with Kira Mccoy
