What to Pack

What to Pack

1.      Your favorite board game for family game night during the “Meet and Greet” on Friday night;

2.      Beach towels and a modest bathing suit, if you plan to spend time at the beach;

3.      Sneakers and “play clothes” to enjoy recreational activities at GLCC during free time;

4.      Long sleeves and mosquito repellant for the Saturday evening bonfire;

5.      Church clothes for Sunday morning

6.      Snacks or specific foods you're family needs/wants to have on hand (the suites have refrigerators and every floor has a lounge with a small fridge).

The rooms are hotel-style, so pillows, bedding, bath towels and wash clothes will be provided.  See the Green Lake page for photos.
If you plan to arrive before 5:00 p.m., you may wish to enjoy dinner at GLCC.  You may purchase dinner tickets at Guest Services for $12.50 ages 12+, $9.00 ages 6-11, and free for children 5 and younger.  The buffet is open from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.  GLCC would appreciate knowing approximately how many people will come for dinner; so if you plan to eat there or have a special request, please let us know by e-mail.  Otherwise, please plan to stop for dinner or bring food with you, as dinner is not included with the retreat.

Hotel room check-in begins at 4:00 p.m. on Friday.  Check-in is located in the Kraft Center (across from Bauer Lodge).  The retreat will begin with a “Meet and Greet” in Bauer Lodge, Morehouse C at 7:00 p.m.  And retreat check-in will begin at 8:00 p.m. in the lobby of Bauer Lodge.  Retreat headquarters will be in the lobby of Bauer Lodge.  Some of you will be staying in rooms in Kern.  Kern and Bauer are adjacent to one another and there is an indoor walkway connecting the two buildings.

We'll be in-and-out of the chapel during the weekend.  If the ladies prefer to be in a skirt in church, please plan accordingly. Otherwise, aside from liturgy Sunday morning, the weekend is casual.

Finally, there are many recreational activities available during free time on Saturday and Sunday after lunch (click here to see all that GLCC has to offer).
