Explore the options below to determine which accommodation will suit your family best.

Green Lake Conference Center

Located on the beautiful waters of Green Lake, GLCC is a Christian conference center that operates year round. Eight years ago, they formed a partnership with Northern Pines that was an answer to the prayers of both ministries. Now they share a common vision of reaching families and providing a fantastic "Vacation with a Purpose".

There are a variety of things to do at the conference center or nearby towns. Many people enjoy the beach, fishing, boat rides, biking, taking walks, golf, tennis, basketball, horseshoes, volleyball, horseback rides, or antiquing in Princeton, a nearby town. Some find the Troster Art Studio on the Green Lake campus a great place for ceramics, china decorating, jewelry making, and stained glass. Others find exploring some of the back roads and seeing what is around the bend relaxing. Around one of those bends is a delicious Mennonite bakery. Some have even ventured further to see a Milwaukee baseball game or a float trip on a river.

Green Lake Conference Center has a wonderful website, glcc.org. Go to "Things To Do and Explore". It has a number of tabs and links for you to click on and learn more. Further information can be found on the website travelwisconsin.com.

Campsite

There are numerous campsites in various locations around campus. Conferees choosing this accommodation option love the community found with their fellow campers. Group campfires and games are enjoyed throughout the week. There are a variety of sites ranging from rustic to fully equipped trailer sites with electricity, water, and sewer. Families staying in a campsite can also choose a lunch-dinner only meal plan and prepare their own breakfasts. Campsites accommodate up to 7 people.

Note: Due to the location of the campgrounds, CCA service will not be offered directly at a campsite. Conferees choosing to camp will need to drop off and pick up their children at a central location each evening. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions regarding this policy. 

Anderson Area

Cabin

We have several cabins available as another economical option for families. Cabins accommodate 4 to 8 people and include a living/dining room area with a rustic camping feel. They are not air conditioned, but are often shaded. Bedding is not provided, so conferees will need to bring sleeping bags or linens. Families staying in a cabin can also choose a lunch-dinner only meal plan and prepare their own breakfasts at the cabin.

Albert IV Cottage

Economy

Each year we work with Green Lake Conference Center to provide a limited number of rooms at economy pricing. The variety of these rooms changes from year to year, but can accommodate 1-4 people.

Bauer Lodge Suites

House

There are several houses available for conferees, although the selection varies every year. Houses have an occupancy we have to meet, so they are usually used by those wishing to stay with extended family or friends. You'll share common spaces like kitchens and bathrooms, but each home is fully capable of holding multiple families comfortably. Houses range from modern to historic, most with large living rooms which make great gathering places. They come equipped with linens, cooking, and dining equipment and all are air conditioned with the exception of Conwell House. Houses can accomodate 8 to 20 people. Some lakefront houses include a private pier that can be used to dock a boat as well. Rooms are serviced twice a week. Families staying in a house can also choose a lunch-dinner only meal option and prepare their own breakfasts at the house.
