Exciting Activities

Free Time

After morning sessions, enjoy engaging in a number of optional activities. Whether you would like to tour PCC’s campus and stop at the Common Grounds for an iced latte or take in area attractions like Fort Pickens, Pensacola and its surrounding area has something for everyone. The Enrichment Retreat’s free time allows you to fit in all of your favorite activities and even shop for a few souvenirs.

Optional On-Campus Activities


Browse the expanded Campus Store or have a snack at The Palms in the Commons. Access complimentary Wi-Fi in the coffee lounge or chat by the stone hearth as you watch the fire flicker. Experience the Common Grounds Café on the second floor of the Commons, where you can purchase specialty coffees and gourmet desserts like fresh pastries and gourmet cupcakes. This would also be a great place to visit with your students or those from your church/youth group/Christian school attending PCC.
