How much does the weekend cost? The total cost for the weekend is dependent upon the number of people in your party as well as your preference in housing. There are a variety of housing options, ranging in price. Housing and meal prices are set by GPC. Meal prices are per person for the entire weekend (nine meals), which includes Friday dinner through Monday lunch. Facility and conference fees also apply. See below for the 2018 fee schedule.
In addition, some housing choices do not include linens (bed and bath). You are welcome to bring your own, or linens can be rented for an additional $10.50 per person for a twin bed, $15.75 for a double bed.
So, how much does the weekend cost? Below is a sample 2019 total cost breakdown for a family of four, choosing traditional meals. Accommodations are for three nights and nine meals per person.
Costs can be kept lower if the family brings their own linens, chooses another housing option, is new to the conference, or is eligible for a scholarship (see below).
For ease, payments are typically made in three installments.
Are scholarships available? Yes. There are a limited number of scholarships available. In addition, the LDWFC has a Newcomers Fund, which offers scholarships to new conference attendees. Contributions to either the Newcomers Fund or to the scholarship fund are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Can I register online? Yes you can! Fill out the registration form here. Registration is complete when payment is received.
How do I make payments? Payments are made in three installments. Upon registration, your weekend deposit is due. When you receive an invoice for the weekend deposit, payments can be made either online (see below) or by check payable to LDWFC. In both May and August, you will receive additional invoices for final payments.
How do I make an online payment? When your registration is received, an invoice for a weekend deposit and instructions for online payment will be sent via e-mail.
How safe is LDWFC for children? Very. Great care is taken to ensure the safety of all conference attendees, including the children. The community looks out for the children, and the children help each other as well. GPC has an on-call nurse, with a cell phone that is always on. The designated swim periods are always staffed by trained life guards.
How is the food? The meals are good camp-fare, with a salad bar at lunch and dinner. Dietary requests may be made directly with GPC and if you have dietary restrictions please indicate your food needs on the registration form.
