Registration and fees

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

REGISTRATION
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION (by Aug 17)
   Base registration fee: $225
   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
   total registration cost is capped at $375 for a family

LATE REGISTRATION
   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
   total registration cost is capped at $425 for a family

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. 

LODGING
There are three options for lodging Friday and Saturday night. 

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) **LODGE ROOMS ARE ALL BOOKED** (updated Tuesday 9:30 pm)
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. 


Local Hotel ($110/night, two nights required)
There will be a block of rooms available to Synaxis families at Country Inn & Suits in Kenosha for families who want to stay with other Synaxis families. The cost will be $110/night (two nights required). These will be held through Tuesday, August 2. Please call (262) 857-3680 to make your reservations. There are other hotel options available (click here to see them), but we love the idea of Synaxis families staying together!
