Your Guide to the Country’s Faith-Based Retreat Centers

By Kelly Russell, June 29, 2017

Retreat centers are a gift to teams, and gifts should be enjoyed freely. Even the healthiest teams can become stuck, lacking in creativity, feeling disconnected with each other or simply getting worn out after a grueling event season. One of the most effective ways to reinvigorate your team is to go away together to recharge. Consider these five retreat centers, which we’ve aligned with specific reconnecting goals.

For Connecting with Nature: Estes Park Center
Estes Park, Colorado

Surrounded on three sides by Rocky Mountain National Park, YMCA of the Rockies’ Estes Park Center encompasses more than 860 beautiful acres of majestic scenery and abundant wildlife. Open year-round, the center hosts a litany of activities to help guests be one with nature including fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, whitewater rafting and snowshoeing.

A range of lodging options includes two-, three- and four-bedroom cabins, plus nine lodges. Dining options include buffets for breakfast and lunch, and to-go meals from Rustic Cafe for dinner, and staff host cookouts during the summer months. EPC has a diverse combination of meeting space options including cabin living rooms for intimate meetings, an assembly hall that seats 1,300, an 800-seat auditorium and a gym that seats 2,500.

Interdenominational ministry Student Life held a retreat at EPC recently. The center is minutes from the town of Estes Park, Colorado— another bountiful place to connect with nature—and an hour and a half from Denver International Airport. $47-$195 per person/night
