The lodges have family oriented guest rooms; each with a private bath, a Queen or King bed and one or two bunk beds, some have a lake view. The lodges also have a large common area kitchen as well as dining area and great room for meetings.

For a clearer sense of what the lodges look like, CLICK HERE for an interactive map of the camp and hover your mouse over the different accommodations.

Gull Lake Ministries has comfortable and cozy cottages, each with two to six overnight rooms, that make great “homes away from home.” Free-standing and private, most cottages have kitchen facilities, living and dining areas, and full baths. They are ideal for a long weekend stay or a full week of rest and relaxation!

The costs for the weekend are broken down into two components: an accommodation fee (one per family), and an activities fee (one per person). This allows maximum flexibility based on the wide variety of family units attending the camp.

Accommodation Fee (includes six meals):

$399 – Lodge
$349 – Cottage with five or less people
$399 – Cottage with six or more people

Activities Fee:

$80 – Adults and children 11 and older
$40 – Children 3-10 (as of October 2018)
$0 – Children 0-2 (as of October 2018)

So, for example, a family of five would pay:

$349 for a cottage
$80 x 2 (parents)
$80 x 1 (children 11 and older)
$40 x 2 (children 3-10)

= $629, which covers accomodations for two nights, six meals (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Sunday breakfast and lunch), as well as all activities.


Our heart is for as many people as possible to attend this event. If finances are a challenge, please contact us! Financial aid is available and we’d love to help you come.

Send an email with your telephone number to Kate Hoffman,, and she will get back to you with the details.
