LYF Springs is located at 22564 NE Woodmen of the World Rd. in Hosford, Florida. It is a 40 acre plot of land located directly across from the Apalachicola National Forest and was developed with the intention of sharing wilderness experiences with youth throughout the United States and beyond. LYF Inc. continues to develop the property for existing and future activities that can be utilized for individuals with a range of abilities and interests. The campus was designed with two dormitories with bunks and communal bathrooms, a large lodge with commercial kitchen, pavilions, a multipurpose classroom, and several other useful structures. Along with amenities utilized by campers, the property also houses 17 RV plots with complete water, sewer and electrical hook-ups. While some areas are cleared for sporting activities, other more natural areas are surrounded by pine, oak, cypress, and magnolia trees, a perfect environment for enjoying Florida’s natural resources.
