Reservation Policies

Lakeview Ministries’ Group Reservation Policies

Who may rent Lakeview’s facilities?
With regard to the renting of our facilities, Lakeview Ministries will not discriminate on the basis of Christian affiliation, race, color, sex, age, handicap, national origin, or socio-economic standing

Lakeview Ministries reserves the right to refuse admittance to any group which is openly opposed to Christian morals or beliefs.

When may I make a reservation?
Reservations may be made up to 12 months in advance.

Groups who have rented any of the camp’s facilities have exclusive rights to the same facilities on the corresponding dates in the following calendar year. These rights are forfeited if the group has not completed their reservation 10 months prior to next year’s retreat dates. “Corresponding dates” will be determined by the relation to the closest of the following major holidays: Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Day. (For example, the “second weekend after Labor Day”)

Are there dates when the facilities are NOT available?
The cabins, dining hall, and retreat complex buildings may not be rented from Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon during the summer camping season, which begins on the Sunday after Memorial Day and lasts for the next 11 weeks.

The Dining Hall and Village Lodge shall not be rented out for day events on Saturdays between the end of the summer camping season and Thanksgiving weekend. Single-day rentals of other facilities may be further restricted to maximize the overall use of the camp’s facilities.

Will we be the only group using camp?
Not necessarily. The camp may accept reservations from a variety of retreat groups over the same dates. Each group will be assigned lodging facilities apart from other groups and their own meeting / gathering area. We will do our best to assist in the coordination of the use of “activity areas” such as canoeing, horseback riding, and the athletic field, so that all groups can take advantage of these offerings.

How soon do we need to schedule camp activities that our group would like to do?
Any activities that require leadership by the camp staff must be scheduled at least 3 weeks in advance (e.g. ropes courses, horseback riding, archery, swimming, etc.). This allows the camp to schedule staff to these activities and coordinate schedules between all guest groups.
