Important Notification!

Currently, there are no vacancies at the YMCA of the Rockies for rooms or cabins. But once you are approved to attend, it is worth calling the YMCA of the Rockies Central Registration at 888-613-9622 to see if there are any cancellations.  

Students who are coming to the Encampment and who have not booked a room can also post on the Worldwide Community Site in the discussion “2022 Encampment Shared Lodging, Travel, and/or Transportation Interest” (free account needed) for shared lodging. Otherwise, you can explore finding other lodging accommodations off-campus through camping, hotels, motels, Airbnb, Vrbo, and other online booking services. It is recommended that you find off-campus lodging prior to paying the tuition fee. Meals can be paid for at the Administration Building for shared dining in our private dining room on the YMCA campus.

The 2022 Encampment begins Thursday, October 20th, at 7:00 PM, and ends Monday, October 24th, at 12:00 PM Mountain Time near beautiful Estes Park, Colorado, USA – at the YMCA of the Rockies in the high altitudes of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Students of the New Message are invited to this immersion experience with the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers, his family, and students from around the world.

On retreat from everyday life, in the spectacular setting of the Rocky Mountains, you will have the chance to explore the greater direction and purpose of your life.

Together, we will delve into our relationship with Knowledge and build connections with others in the Worldwide Community of students who are responding to the New Message at this increasingly critical time in the world.

The Encampment is for people who have been impacted by the New Message and feel their journey in life may be connected to studying the New Message and supporting its mission in the world.

To be prepared for this high-level environment with the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers and to build a concentrated environment, please familiarize yourself with the prerequisites and the recommendations.
