Advent Retreat - Dec. 4-6, 2020

The Advent Retreat offers families an opportunity to spend time together as a family celebrating the advent season for a weekend while enjoying Lutherlyn.

The weekend registration fee includes lodging*, meals, program, and the supplies for each activity. 

Due to covid-19, the 2020 Advent Retreat will be limited to 10 families. Each family will have their own cabin. If Dec. 4-6 fills with 10 families, we will add an additional retreat on Dec. 11-13. 

Registration deadline is Nov. 23. 

 

Covid Considerations:

  • We will do most activities outdoors. Each camper over the age of 2 should have a mask with them at all times. All outdoor activities will have families spread out but a mask will be needed when going inside bathrooms or if there were to be an emergency that required getting closer to others. 
  • Masks are requires in the dining hall. Each family will have an assigned table for meals. A mask must be worn when not seated at your families assigned table (when getting food/drinks, when entering and exiting the building).
  • Masks are required when indoors (except when in your own cabin or at your families assigned table for meals).
  • Each family will have their own private cabin. 
  • Each family is required to sign Lutherlyn's covid waiver and covid policies. The signature will be an electronic signature with online registration.
