Green Lake Conference Center

When reserving accommodations with GLCC, identify yourself with the Wisconsin Conference United Church of Christ Annual Meeting. Hotel rooms in Bauer Lodge, Kern Lodge, and Roger Williams Inn are within nearby walking distance of the dining room and meeting spaces. Rooms are air conditioned and have private baths. There are no televisions (except in common lounge rooms) and you should bring your own toiletries, including shampoo, etc.

Important: GLCC will release unsold rooms from our room block on April 28. To be sure of getting a room at GLCC, register by April 28!

Meals

Call GLCC at 920-294-3323

Those staying on the GLCC campus will be automatically charged for predetermined meal plans according to the number of night’s stay. If there are meals you plan on missing, ask to have them removed from your itinerary at the time of reservation.

Special dietary needs can be accommodated by Green Lake Conference Center. Fill out the form on their website or let the facility know when you make your reservation.

  • Main meal package: Friday lunch – Sunday breakfast. Includes 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners. No charge for ages 5 and under.
  • Commuters who wish to dine at GLCC must order in advance through GLCC at least 48 hours prior to your arrival.
  • You will need to pick up lunch tickets through GLCC at the main check-in counter in Kern Lodge. They are not available through the Wisconsin Conference UCC registration area. Plan ahead: before Friday lunch there is often a crowd at the GLCC registration desks.
  • All meals are served buffet-style with several choices of entree offered at each sitting. Vegetarian options are included. Children eat from a “child friendly” buffet. Special meals due to medical requirements can be ordered by contacting guest services by calling 920-294-3323 or by filling out this form on their website.
  • Meals and beverages are taxed. To avoid state sales tax, bring a copy of your tax exempt form with  ID number and a letter on letterhead from your church or non-profit organization stating that you are there on business for them.
  • Thursday dinner or Friday breakfast: If you will be at Green Lake Conference Center on Thursday and staying for the entire meeting, you must add Thursday dinner and/or Friday breakfast (if you wish them) to your meal package when you register. The same applies if you are staying for lunch on Sunday.
