July 4th Hostel's 40th Birthday

Posted June 14th, 2015

The weekend of July 4th, we turn FORTY, and America… turns WAY OLDER! Let’s celebrate how well we’ve all aged with songs by the campfire and doing yoga til we can’t downward dog any longer!

Starting on the night of Friday the 3rd, after you get cozy in your accommodation and fill your bellies with a wonderful vegetarian dinner, we’ll have the lovely songstress Danielle Hicks—with guitar wizard, Nate Saraceno, down from Savannah to serenade you fireside.

On Saturday morning, we’ll start the day of full of intention with a guided Yoga Nidra meditation, followed by a yoga practice led by an instructor (to be determined) in the Glass House. Spend the whole of the fourth in the magical woods and waters of the Forest… Sounds nice, doesn’t it? That night (the 4th) we’ll be rockin’ up some authentic southern BBQ, courtesy of our very talented kitchen manager, Mark (a man well versed in the art of food for the soul). And, of course…we will not disappoint our vegan and vegetarian friends! After dinner, as the sun casts its last rays upon the canopy, Orlando’s own, D.J. Jae Ortiz (Jaibiotic) will spin his magic from the cobb kitchen! Watch beauty form to the music as the much loved artists Veronika and Bridget transform surfaces into live works of art!

The following morning (Sunday), wrap up your weekend of celebration with a healing Yoga Nidra meditation and a guided yoga practice.

Check in before 7 p.m. Friday, July 3rd. Check out by 12 p.m. Sunday, July 5th.

A light brunch will be provided both Saturday and Sunday mornings. Lunches are up to you!

To protect our beloved Forest, no fireworks will be permitted during this event.

In addition to all of our beautiful treehouses, we’ll be offering campsites around the lake. Reservations can be made now! We’re asking a flat fee of $125 per person for all of what Friday, Saturday and Sunday have to offer.

May the Forest Be With You
