Retreat Registration Fee:

  • On-site registration at the retreat - $25.00 / person
  • Get a DISCOUNT! Register early and ONLINE!
    Online advance registration, through June 10, 2018 is only $15.00 / person!

Advance registration fees are transferable, but non-refundable. So, if someone registers for the retreat, and is unable to attend, their registration fee is not refundable, but it is ok for someone else to attend in their place.

Register Yourself AND Others!

Our online registration offers the opportunity for you to register up to 35 guests at the same time that you do your own registration Help other members of your local unit to register online...especially those who may not have a computer!

Online Payment of Registration Fee

Our online reservations process uses ProPay and PayPal to securely process payment of the registration fee. Both are secure, widely used processors of online payments. If you choose the "Pay with Credit Card" option, you will be able to enter your credit card billing information right on our registration page, and your payment will be processed through our ProPay merchant account...very simple!  If you choose to use PayPal, you will be transferred over to the PayPal website in order to either use your own PayPal account, or have the option to process your credit card payment there as a guest. 

DO NOT mail Spiritual Growth Retreat registration fee money to Lake Junaluska. If you have questions about our online registration, or need assistance, call or email one of the contact persons shown at left.

Note: If after you register yourself (or yourself and other guests) you want to add additional guests, you will have to do that using a different email address from the one you used the first time. The system captures the email address as the unique identifier, and does not allow changes to an already processed registration.
