What is the “Millennial Weekend”?

This will be a weekend experience is specifically designed for the spiritual enrichment of the 20-40 year old age group. This will be a Co-Ed Event.


The weekend is not intended to be a conversion experience, but is for Christian growth by active, baptized members of a Christian congregation.

The weekend is NOT a retreat. It is an encounter with Christ experienced in community with other people.


Daily Worship experiences including celebration of Holy Communion

Talks presented by both Clergy & Laity each followed by small group discussion

Designated time to rest & reflect

Plenty of laughter, singing, band music, and other fun events

Opportunities for pastoral counseling if desired


Weekend activities are held at Camp Retreat Centers (like Lutherdale, in Elkhorn WI)

Arrangements for commuting, lodging or meals are not necessary

Because the weekends are held in camps, many people will be sleeping in the same area on an assigned bed. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and/or bedding.

The weekend schedule for eating and rest can be irregular, but some accommodations can be made if special needs exist and are made known.

Showers are provided daily

Husbands and wives are encouraged to attend together. Like many other things in marriage this, too, is best if experienced by both partners.

Attendees should plan on staying for the complete weekend.



Weekend fees are in the $120 – $150 range (based on location) including meals, lodging, and materials. (Scholarships are available)

Time commitment:

Weekend activities begin at 8AM on Friday and end on Sunday around 4PM. You can expect your sponsor to arrange to pick you up and bring you home.

Please Contact your Pastor or your church Parish Representative for additional information or a weekend application.
