Advent Retreat - Dec. 3-5, 2021

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. 

Registration deadline is Nov. 22. 


Covid Considerations:

  • We will do most activities outdoors. Each camper over the age of 2 should have a mask with them at all times. 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 is required to sign Lutherlyn's covid waiver and covid policies. The signature will be an electronic signature with online registration.
