Group Retreats at Trail West

"Thank you, Young Life staff, for a transformative and empowering experience.  We were richly blessed, and only hope the Lord grants us the privilege of another opportunity someday to restore and renew in your wonderful facilities." ~ A couple on a retreat at Trail West Lodge

Young Life's Trail West Lodge in Buena Vista, Colorado is available for groups looking for an exceptional retreat venue during the summer shoulder months of April to early-May, and late-August through October.

With the exception of summer, Trail West's Red Deer Chalet is available for groups of 29 or less, who need a great place to stay, but plan on doing their own meals.

Trail West is not your ordinary retreat facility. That’s because we set the table for your group to have the best retreat experience possible, by removing all distractions you might face as the retreat planner. You’ll experience exceptional facilities and food, as well as plenty of available activities. You’ll be awed by the majestic surroundings. But most of all, you’ll discover a level of service unmatched by other properties who don’t connect with your mission or purpose. That’s because we resonate with your calling . . . and partner with you to accomplish your objectives while staying with us.

Positioned among the Collegiate Peaks of Colorado, Trail West's mountain views create an ambiance that truly impress upon your group they are retreating from the stresses back home.

Trail West Lodge is capable of meeting the needs of a variety of guest group sizes, from 100 to 250.*

* Is your group under 100 people? Are you looking for a venue to use between September and May. We may still have an option for you!

It's called Red Deer Chalet, and it's a beautiful, self-contained lodge. Red Deer can accommodate up to 29 people, has an area large enough to hold a small group meeting with a flat screen TV, and includes a full kitchen to prepare your own meals. Primarily, we wanted to offer smaller groups this option, because we don’t provide a meal plan for groups under 100 people. So, this gives groups like yours the chance to stay at a Young Life camp, and keep your cost down by preparing your own meals.
