Everything You Need to Know about Retreat
—In order to enable as many people as possible to attend, Fusion provides a partial scholarship for early registrants. This “early-bird” rate is $120 per person, and that rate is open to those who register and pay by Sunday September 17. Registrations received between Monday September 18 and the final deadline of Sunday September 24 will owe the full price of $220 per person.
—Please note: in order to be good stewards of our finances, the early-bird rate and/or scholarship funds will only be available to Fusion regular attenders (and their families).
—You can register and pay online or in person. Pay online using your debit/credit card or bank account, or in person with cash, check, or money order. Checks/money orders should be made payable to The Moody Church, with “Fusion Retreat” in the memo. All money must be turned in by the September 24 deadline.
—The registration fee covers lodging for Friday and Saturday nights and meals from breakfast Saturday through Sunday lunch. Dinner will not be provided on Friday, although we’ll have snacks available as you arrive that evening. We encourage you to stop for dinner along the way, rather than driving straight to camp and then backtracking. Enjoy the trip and the fellowship!
—Children ages 3–10 are $95 with the early bird discount (or $195 full price); children 2 and under are free. Childcare is not provided.
—If you would like to order a retreat t-shirt, please be sure to complete that section of the form and include your shirt size. Shirts ($20 each) are not included in the retreat fee, although both fees can be paid together.
—If you cancel before the September 24 registration deadline you’ll receive a full refund. No refunds (of either registration or t-shirt fees) can be provided after September 24.
—Gull Lake is approximately 160 miles from Chicago, and the drive takes about three to four hours (in good traffic). When you register, please be sure to let us know if you’ll be driving, if you can take passengers, or if you need a ride.
—Since we don’t have a church vehicle, we will do our best to arrange carpools. While we will try to accommodate requests and preferences, please remember that we’re working to coordinate transportation for approximately 30 people, so we can’t guarantee that requests can be fulfilled.
—If there are any details that will help in the process—you can’t leave until 6:00pm Friday, or you can head out early, or you can take passengers but the back seat of your hatchback is tight—please let us know in the “comments or questions” section. That will help as we work to match everyone up.
—Please note that, although we will do our best, due to the limited number of vehicles, we cannot guarantee transportation for everyone.
—Check-in opens at 6:00pm Friday October 27 and will be open through the evening. Please do not arrive earlier than 6:00pm. As noted, dinner will not be provided, although light snacks will be available. (Remember, Michigan is in Eastern Time, so Gull Lake is an hour ahead of Chicago.)
—We will be staying in hotel-style rooms. Each room has one queen bed and two twin beds, and is fully furnished with its own bathroom and sheets/blankets/towels.
—You’re encouraged to request specific roommates, or we can assign you to a room. Each room will have 2–3 people, each with his/her own bed. Single rooms are not available. Married couples are automatically put together. We will do our best to respect all requests; however, the room list is contingent on the number of people coming and the space we have available, so please note that requests can’t be guaranteed.
—Meals are served cafeteria style in the dining room, and multiple options are provided.
—Gull Lake can accommodate those with special dietary needs as long as we give them advance notice. If you have dietary restrictions, please let us know when you register so that we can pass the info along.
