GO·REC (Greilick Outdoor Recreation & Education Center) is 500 wooded, lakeside acres in the midst of the Great Lakes Basin and multiple outdoor destinations...and we achieve social good through outdoor education.
Here you can freely fish the lakes, watch wildlife, hike or mountain bike 6 miles of trails. You can rent campsites to pitch your tent, experience our tree tents and stay in our cottages or bunkhouses. And more than all that, you can learn something while having fun. We host events like hammock movie nights and workshops like orienteering (for when your phone dies!). We offer definitive training of the outdoor industry like paddlesports facilitation by the American Canoe Association.
We are a “remote” experience but only 10 miles from downtown Traverse City. We offer you a controlled environment where you can find space to grow, take off your training wheels to the backcountry and level up in the great outdoors.
Traverse City Rotary purchased this land in 1923 to benefit children and our community with "wood lore". The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) fulfilled this aim over the past 94 years. Today we continue that legacy through recreation opportunities and distinctive outdoor education.
