What are the housing/sleeping arrangements?
All guests are welcome to stay the night on campus, lock-in style in the Laughlin Center. We will separate boys and girls and each group will have access to their own bathrooms and showers. If your group would prefer to stay in a hotel, you can do so at your own cost. LCU has a discount agreement with a couple hotels in town, so contact us for details. For those planning to stay on campus, bedding (sleeping bags or the like), pillows, toiletries, etc will be necessary.
Youth sponsors only: If staying in the dorms would be preferable because of a medical issue, please let us know and we’ll work to accommodate you.
