About the Location

Callaway Gardens is a beautiful resort off the Appalachian Mountains in Pine Mountain Georgia offering a perfect setting for professional development and training. The plethora of activities from which to choose outside of training provides time for fun and relaxation for adults and families.

Participants coming for two to five days of training will have a variety of activities to engage in at Callaway Garden’s property. In fact, there’s so much to do that participants could turn this into a summer vacation after training hours.

Fun for Kiddos!

A summer camp is available for children ages 3- 17 from 9:00am-3:00pm. The range of activities varies on the age of the child and the cost is $75.00 per day. Participants can book one day or multiple days, but should book as soon as possible since there is limited space for the camp. Reservations must be made at time of hotel reservations.
