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 14. That way you won’t miss any of the outstanding Wednesday afternoon Early Bird Workshops or be rushed at check-in. It’s also a good way to ease into the conference and become acclimated to the elevation.

Cabins - The  YMCA also has family cabins available for rent. If this is an option you'd like to consider, it is wise to make a reservation ASAP. Go to http://www.ymcarockies.org/ and then the “make reservations” area. Be sure to note that you are coming to CCWC so that the conference will receive credit toward our room count. Meals are not included with cabin reservations but can be purchased separately. There is no charge for meals for children 0-5. Children 6-12: breakfast $6, lunch $7, dinner $9. Adults: breakfast $9, lunch $11, dinner $14. There is no YMCA $15 daily commuter fee for those staying in a YMCA cabin, but a daily conference facility use fee of $8 will be added to your bill.
