Great Wolf Lodge
The Great Wolf resort offers spacious suites, an indoor water park and video arcade, and adjoining 20k sqft. conference center, which Washington DeMolay transforms into a State Chapter Room complete with breakout session rooms, dining areas, and a Convention Office.
How to get there
Great Wolf Lodge is along I-5 at exit 88 (US Hwy 12) about an hour and a half drive south from Seattle and north from Portland.
20500 Old Highway 99 SW, Centralia WA 98531, USA
When you arrive on Thursday, proceed to the conference center at the North side of the resort. A single Advisor for each Chapter needs to check in with Convention Staff during registration from 12:00 – 12:30pm. Belongings may be placed in the Hang Out Room until rooms are available.
The following restrictions apply to all rooms:
Room occupants must be of the same gender.
Youth attendees under the age of 21 cannot be in the same room as adults 21 years or older.
Youth attendees must be within a three-year age difference (e.g., 12-14) at the time of Convention.
The cost of your registration may be adjusted based on the actual number of occupants assigned to your room. We strongly encourage you to indicate preferred roommates which meet our housing requirements to prevent any changes in your cost to attend. We will make every effort to accommodate your requests, but please keep in mind that room assignments are made at the sole discretion of Convention staff.
Full-time attendees are provided meals beginning with dinner on Thursday evening through the formal Grand Banquet dinner on Saturday evening. To reduce the overall cost of registration, some meals are in the form of a meal voucher to be used at one of these participating locations. These meals must be eaten off site to comply with hotel regulations.
Advisors must accompany youth attendees when traveling off-site. Old Highway 99 SW does not have a sidewalk; a vehicle must be used to travel to these locations (other than Burger Claim located within the same parking lot).
