Registration and Lodging info

This year's registration fees are structured differently than in the past. Here's how it will break down:

Base registration fee: $275
This fee covers the oldest two members of your family (i.e. the couple, or one adult and one child).
Children ages 12+: $50 each
Children ages 3-11: $25 each
Children under 3: free

When you register (here), you will let us know who is attending and their ages. From this information, we will generate an invoice for you, which you'll receive via email within a few days. You may pay this with any credit card online, or by printing it out and sending a check to St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Des Plaines. Please make the check payable to "St John the Baptist Church" with "Family Synaxis Labor Day" in the memo. Payments should be received within 10 days of beginning the registration process, and no later than August 17 (or August 24 if you are registering late).

* If this retreat is cost-prohibitive to your family, please contact Fr. John Rallis at (847) 827-5510 to discuss financial aid options. 

There are three options for lodging Friday and Saturday night. 
*UPDATE* As of 10:00 am Wed. July 15, the Main Lodge is entirely booked! You may still register for the retreat and choose to stay at either the cottages or an area hotel. 

You'll indicate your preference during the registration process, and we will fill the Lodge and Cottages on a first-come-first-served basis. We will invoice the Main Lodge and Cabins along with the registration fees.

Main Lodge ($99/night, two nights required)
The main lodge consists of hotel-style rooms with private bathrooms. These rooms sleep up to six guests. You can see photos of the main lodge rooms here. There are only 24 rooms available for families to reserve.

Cottages ($75/family/night, two nights required)
There are two cottages that have 32 beds (bunks) each. One will be for men; one for women. There are locker-room type showers and bathrooms. These are ideal for families whose children are over the age of 5.
