Reservations can be made up to one year in advance; early reservations are recommended. Occasionally, however, a group can be taken on short notice. A contract detailing the group's arrangements (dates, services, costs and etc.) is sent to the group's representative and must be signed and returned to the Conference Coordinator. A deposit is required along with the contract to guarantee the reservation.

Group leaders are welcome to come tour the Taft Campus by making prior arrangements with the Conference Coordinator. All visitors must stop by the office to be escorted around the campus.


The cost of stays at Taft Campus are based on services provided. Factors affecting the price include length of stay, number of nights lodging, meals and snacks provided, age of participants, and other services required. Contact us for more specific information.


If an event is cancelled after the signed contract and deposit are submitted, a $50 processing fee will be retained. Should the event be canceled 0 - 60 days prior to the event, the deposit will be forfeited.

Northern Illinois University groups will be held to the following cancellation policy:
The Lorado Taft Field Campus reserves the right to charge the user group a service fee equal to 10% of the contracted amount should the event be canceled 31-60 days prior to the date of the event; 25% if canceled 11-30 days prior to the event; and 50% if canceled 0-10 days prior to the event. This charge will be made automatically through the University's internal accounting system.
