Facilitating Outdoor Activities


Many of our outdoor offerings can be enjoyed by groups on their own; however, activities like the High and Low Ropes Courses, Tree Climbing, Canoeing and Kayaking require trained facilitation due to safety requirements and equipment logistics.

Contact DaySpring Reservations for details about facilitation by the DaySpring staff or one of our partners. Reserve a time for your group by calling DaySpring Reservations at (941) 776-1018.

Common Ground has had a strong partnership with DaySpring since 2000, both in managing their ropes course and providing programming for clients who visit the conference center. DaySpring provides a wonderful challenge and ropes course which offers quality adventure-based programming. It is a model that has been duplicated with other facilities throughout the state, and is a special place for Common Ground.
