We will worship through song and God’s Word on Friday evening through Sunday morning. There is something unique and powerful worshipping in a room with students from across the state of Florida.


Camp Kulaqua offers some fun activities for us to enjoy: polar plunge, zoo, field games, and more. There are also a few local springs and state parks for you to enjoy during free time. Southland will also run a few friendly sports tournaments throughout the weekend. Groups can also reserve a campfire site for Saturday evening.


Through conversations on the ride up, church huddle time, to the late-night talks in your rooms, relationships will be forged and deepened throughout the weekend together. Rest assured your group will leave closer together than when they arrived.


One of the greatest parts about Southland is the friendships that are created between students, leaders, and churches. These bonds will carry out into their college experience, encouraging them to visit RUF, and enjoy life with.
