Kulaqua Retreat and conference center

At Kulaqua, we’ve learned a valuable lesson over the years. When you strip away the distractions, when you create an environment that allows people to focus—as individuals as well as groups—on a common goal or purpose, good things are bound to happen.
Kulaqua’s mission is to serve the constituents of the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists with a friendly and quality camping and retreat facility that sets an atmosphere allowing for the Holy Spirit to touch as many lives as possible.

Secondarily, to use Camp Kulaqua as an outreach to non-members who can abide by the policies of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and the principles of Christianity.

May all be to the honor and glory of God.

Kulaqua, situated among the natural beauty of northern Florida and adorned with a style that will create a lasting impression for you and your guests, is the preeminent destination for your next event.

Celebrating Over 60 Years Of Bringing People Together!

Take a trip down memory lane with Kulaqua – From 1950-1970

Are you looking for a way to increase productivity in your workplace? Do you feel like your team could be more cohesive and single of purpose? Have you tried other team-building exercises only to discover that the results weren’t what you expected?

Before you organize your next online webinar or favor your team with yet another “working lunch,” stop. Consider the results you’ve gotten from that approach in the past. Did any of that really help you build a stronger team? Did it net you the results you were looking for?

Now consider the depth and impact getting away from the cubicles and offices, ditching the phones and tablets, and really connecting as people driven by a common purpose can have on your team.

It’s through those kinds of experiences—when we get back to the bare essentials, get quiet, and clear our heads—that truly amazing things start to happen.

Getting Back to Basics


At Kulaqua, we’ve learned a valuable lesson over the years. When you strip away the distractions, when you create an environment that allows people to focus—as individuals as well as groups—on a common goal or purpose, good things are bound to happen.

This is why we think you should consider us for your next conference, retreat or team-building event. The benefits of everything we have to offer far exceed anything you’ll get booking a meeting or event in an office or commercial environment.

The Power of Nature


Experience the warmth of the sun beating down through the trees, its beams reflecting off placid waters, the sound of a gentle breeze through the trees—all of these things are a recipe for better focus, relaxation, and creativity.

We think you’ll come up with some of your best ideas here, and there is no shortage of inspiration. The beauty of nature surrounds you and inspires you at every turn at Kulaqua.

Services and Amenities


Make your group retreat as formal or informal as you wish. We offer spacious rooms for meetings and seminars that are ideal for any size group, as well as numerous opportunities to develop small group dynamics in a quiet, intimate setting, both indoors and out.

We understand that well rested and well fed is also well focused, which is why we offer an array of dining and lodging options to suit your group’s needs and desires. We offer a range of accommodations that span the spectrum between charming do-it-yourself rusticity and full- service luxury. 

Catering Services


Our catering services also run the gambit between lavish banquet events and informal cookouts. You can opt for shameless pampering or “rough it” a bit with a more traditional camping experience. The choice is yours.

We also provide a host of other organized and freestyle activities for when it’s time to abandon work for play. Take advantage of numerous seasonal activities, including swimming in our very own fresh water spring, enjoying our own water park, hiking, horseback riding, free fall, climbing wall, and even a zip line. At Kulaqua, you get it all: an incredible team-building atmosphere and the perfect setting to let loose and have fun.
