Reservation Policies

Members of the Green Lake Lutheran Ministries Corporation may book retreats one year in advance. 
Non-member groups and family groups may make reservations six months in advance, with the acception of St. Andrew Village Weekends during the summer months. They may be booked as soon as the summer schedule has been finalized the fall. 
Medayto Lodge may be reserved one year to the date in advance. Reservations may be made Monday through Friday 8:00 am - 3:30 pm with the GLLM Registrar. Reservations must be made by phone or in person.  If your date falls on a weekend or holiday, you may make your reservation the next business day. Priority is not given to previous renters.

Retreat Guidelines

  • Please be prepared to share such facilities as the dining hall, recreation areas, grounds, equipment, etc. with other retreat groups that may be at the camp when you are there. Often there is more than one group at camp at the same time.
  • When multiple retreat groups are sharing the facility, please respect a 10:30 p.m. – 7:00 a.m. quiet time within the building. Adult leaders will be expected to enforce this with their group.
  • Check out for Sleeping Units is 11 a.m. except during the summer months weekend groups will need to check out of sleeping units by 9:30 a.m. to allow for turnovers.
  • GLLM does not allow pets at any of our sites.
  • When no life-guard is provided, swimming will be at your own risk. We are not responsible for accidents.
  • Alcoholic beverages are allowed: however, we expect guests to practice discretion in their alcohol consumption, to not become intoxicated, and to be courteous to other guests and residents of the camp.  GLLM reserves the right to deny alcohol privileges to any group for any reason, and to expel groups that abuse the privilege.
  • Our standard meal times are: Breakfast 8:30 AM, Lunch 12:00 PM, and Supper 5:30 PM. Alternative meal times and food requests or special diets must be negotiated with our cook at least 2 weeks in advance.

Medayto Lodge Guidelines

In addition to the Retreat Guidelines the following applies to Medayto Lodge:
  • In respect for our neighbors and other retreaters, we ask that campers not leave the camp grounds without permission from the group’s Retreat Leader and that all outside activities cease by 11 PM.
  • State law does not allow pets at camp.
  • The first full week of June through the last week of August Medayto must be rented by the week. You may check in at 1 p.m. on Monday and check out by 1 p.m. on Sunday. The remainder of the year can be reserved on a day to day basis with customized arrival and departure times.

Retreat Cancellation Policy

If you must cancel or reschedule your retreat for any reason other than a storm, the following will apply:
  • 60 or more days prior to the retreat—half of your deposit will be forfeited.
  • 59 days or less, prior to the retreat—your entire deposit will be forfeited.
