Most Baysiders will lodge in the Watson Retreat Center. A limited number of rooms are available in the new building that is currently under construction at Lutherdale. The new building features hotel-style rooms that sleep up to 3 people and that have a private bathroom. We must fill a minimum amount of rooms in the Watson Retreat Center before we can guarantee a room in the new building, unless you have a medical or accessibility exception.

Registration Fees

Below are the prices for each of the lodging options. Anyone with a medical or accessibility exception can reserve a room in the new building immediately. If you believe that you have a medical or accessibility exemption, please contact the Registrar at baysideuu@gmail.com. All other campers who wish to lodge in the new building will be put on a waitlist until our minimum quota at the Watson Retreat Center has been filled. Campers will then be assigned to the new building based on the order in which Bayside has received your registration.

If you wish to lodge in the new building, compute your registration fee based on the new building rate and mail us a check that reflects the new building rate. In the event that you are unable to lodge in the new building, Bayside will refund you the difference between the new building rate and the Watson Retreat Center rate.

Please note: The rates below are listed on a per person basis (not by room). So, for example, the rate for a person age 12 or older staying in Watson with up to 3 or 4 people in the room is $525 for that person.

To Register:

Luke Brooks-Shesler

Registrations are accepted in the order that they are received. Registrations are not guaranteed until the registrar receives a check for one-half the total camp fee. If possible, the registrar would appreciate full payment at the time of deposit. The total fee must be paid by June 1, 2021. We only have space for 60 campers and we expect the camp to fill. When camp fills, the registrar will create a waiting list in case some campers change their plans.

Refund Policy:

If your plans change the registrar will try very hard to return your money. However if attendance is unexpectably low we may only be able to refund 1/2 of your deposit. No refunds will be given after June 1st.
