For more than 40 years, we’ve been chasing the sun down to Florida every March Break! Join us for a camp week like no other!
The SouthBound trip is a large event sponsored by several chapters of Youth Unlimited/YFC, with participation by high school aged youth, volunteers and staff all across Southern Ontario.
SouthBound runs each March Break, and is open to high school aged youth. We drive 26 hours on air-conditioned highway coach buses and stay at Camp Gilead in Polk City, Florida. The camp facility is our home base for the week.
Throughout the week, we take advantage of the fantastic facilities at Camp Gilead, with its private lakefront, water tubing, beach volleyball, and gym facilities. We take amazing day trips to theme parks, MLB training games, shopping outlets, and of course the ocean! Each night, we have hilarious team challenges, a live DJ, and a speaker. Youth connect and engage in small groups, where they can ask questions and explore the gospel together with Youth Unlimited/YFC staff and volunteers. At the end of the six days we will board the buses and head home.
This trip is an incredible experience that connects us with youth and Youth Unlimited/YFC staff from all over the province, making memories that last a lifetime, the hope of Jesus in real life, and connections with young people and leaders that go far beyond our week in the sunny south!
