Grown-Up Camp

Registration Deadline: 
August 15, 2022

Who says camp is just for kids?

Grown-Up Camp includes all of the fun and excitement of kid camp with some relaxation, fellowship, and extras for adults!  This grown-ups only retreat is the perfect opportunity to enjoy all the fun of kid camp but with some changes and additions specifically for grown-ups.  Anyone age 21 or older is invited to join in the fun!  

You'll be able to enjoy camp classics like campfires, hikes, crafts, ropes course, and sports.  All of the activities are optional to provide as much or as little time as you'd like to relax or explore Lutherlyn's beautiful grounds and trails.

The $150 fee for these fun filled days at camp includes all meals*, program, snacks, and lodging (cabins are equipped with full bathroom/showers and twin size beds).  Guests are responsible for bringing their own linens and toiletries.

Health/Wellness Considerations:

  • Please take the health and well-being of others, particularly those who may have compromised immune systems, into consideration when evaluating your own health prior to a retreat/event at Lutherlyn. While we certainly would love to have you here, we do not want others to get sick while attending a retreat. 
  • When sharing a cabin/sleeping space and meeting rooms with people from other households, it is important to consider multiple factors prior to arriving at Lutherlyn. If you have symptoms that indicate you could have a contagious illness (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, congestion, etc.) that could transmit to others, please cancel your reservation for a full refund. 
  • Lutherlyn will issue a full refund for ALL medical related cancellations. 
  • Anyone who tested positive for COVID-19 up to 7 days prior to the start of the retreat should cancel for a full refund. To come to a Lutherlyn retreat after having COVID you must be at least 1 full week past the positive test AND at least 24-hours symptom free. 
  • When possible, we recommend participants take a rapid COVID test prior to departing for Lutherlyn. For Lutherlyn retreats, when possible/available, we will provide rapid tests upon arrival. 
  • If symptoms develop while at Lutherlyn, please refrain from interacting with others, notify the retreat leader, and depart from Lutherlyn. A pro-rated refund will be issued.
  • COVID-19 Vaccine is required for those age 18 and older attending Lutherlyn sponsored residential retreats (Quilting/Crafting, Advent Retreat, Grown-Up Camp, Family Camp, etc.). Medical Exemptions require documentation from an MD and a negative COVID test upon arrival. This does not apply for day events, those under the age of 18, and rental groups (although rental groups can establish the same policy for their group).
