We have a new venue for our annual HCC Labor Day Getaway! Not that we didn’t love The Omni, but sometimes it’s good to shake things up a bit.

Through Grande Lakes, we have our very own reservation site. This will make things less complicated. The link is https://bit.ly/2N6xtph however if you would rather call them for your reservation here is their phone number, 1-800-266-9432 (tell them you are with Heritage Community Church).

On-site adventure activities include mountain biking, fishing excursions, a guided kayak ecotour and an early morning nature outing billed as a sunrise safari.
The recently completed Hidden Lake bike trail with a two-mile track to ride on new Scott bicycles over boardwalks and trails through wooded areas. You can ride it by yourself or join a guided ride
There is a two-hour ecotour of Shingle Creek, led by a Certified Florida Master Naturalist. Participants paddle their own canoe or kayak in groups of no more than 15. It's a chance to learn about the history of Shingle Creek
Those who'd rather ride than paddle can opt instead for a sunrise safari, also led by a Florida Master Naturalist.
There are plenty of guided options to fish for Florida largemouth bass on one of Grande Lakes Orlando's 11 private, stocked and managed lakes and ponds.
There’s really no reason to leave the resort, for the entire weekend. There is over a dozen restaurants on site.
