The YMCA of the Rockies
Estes Park Center

Breathtaking scenery, deer, elk, maybe a moose,
and glorious sunsets and sunrises
make bringing your camera a must!

The Estes Park Center is a year-round conference center with hotel-style rooms, full private baths, a telephone, and Internet access. All-you-can-eat buffet meals are included in the cost of your lodging.

To learn more about the YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park Center, and their recreational facilities, especially if you’re interested in bringing your family, visit http://www.YMCAROCKIES.ORG.

Important – If you are traveling a distance and especially if you are flying, we encourage you to begin your stay on Tuesday night, May 10. It’s also a good way to ease into the conference and become acclimated to the elevation.

through lunch the day of departure.

Non-participating spouses are welcome to come and to share your room. Unlike a typical hotel where an additional person can share your room for no charge,

Members of your family are welcome and encouraged to attend the morning and evening keynotes free of charge.
