What are the health & safety practices in regards to COVID-19 at Lutherhill in La Grange?
Our cleaning staff thoroughly cleans with CDC approved chemicals between each group’s stay; this includes sleeping spaces, gathering spaces, restrooms and all frequently touched surfaces. To limit exposure, Lutherhill’s cleaning staff will not re-enter your designated facilities once your group has arrived. We can provide CDC approved chemicals for adult group leaders to sanitize intermittently during your stay.
We encourage guests to follow CDC guidelines and physically distance from people outside of their household. Group leaders are encouraged to manage group dynamics in light of these guidelines. When interacting with Lutherhill staff, we ask that you wear a face covering and physically distance in order to protect safeguard others.
What are you offering at Lutherhill in Fall 2020?
We typically host multiple Lutherhill retreats for youth, families and adults. In order to keep everyone healthy, we have decided not to host youth retreats this fall (Converge and Advent Retreat). We will offer a Fall Family Retreat, October 16-18, 2020.
COVID has encouraged us to re-imagine how we do camp. This fall we will be offering day events called… BEST.DAY.EVER. These Saturday events pack all the joy of camp into a day o’ fun. All ages are welcome, October 3, November 14 and December 5, 2020.
If I book space at Lutherhill, how will food services work?
We have a variety of options for food service.
1.) Your group can provide their own food. Lutherhill has facilities with kitchens and kitchenettes, everything you need to host meals for your own group.
2.) Lutherhill can provide food for your group in outdoor settings – a cookout at Out Camp, a picnic under the oak trees, a breakfast basket delivered to cabin.
3.) Lutherhill can provide food for your group in our dining hall. Similar to protocols in restaurants, we operate on a limited capacity with adequate space between each table for physical distancing. Face coverings are required within the dining hall, until seated at your table.
How can I invest in the future of Lutherhill?
This public health crisis continues to a significant financial impact on Lutherhill Ministries. Retreat operations have been suspended since mid-March, creating a sizeable loss of revenue. Cancellation of summer camp created even more lost revenue. Every camper comes to camp at a reduced rate because our ministry leaders are committed to never let finances keep children from experiencing camp. In order to continue this legacy of generosity, we need your help. We welcome your generous support to help us invest in the future of Lutherhill.
