host your next group retreat here

​For more than 60 years, Young Life has set the standard by building state-of-the-art, comfortable, well-designed facilities that reflect God’s glorious creation. At Trail West we offer outstanding lodging accommodations, amenities, and personalized service at competitive and affordable rates for groups. We enjoy sharing our property with Young Life affiliated groups, as well as other groups looking to host retreats throughout the school year. To find out more about booking Trail West Lodge for your next event, contact us today.


During the summer, we are exclusively used by Young Life as the National Family Camp. For the remainder of the year, our purpose is to share these beautiful facilities at Trail West Lodge with other non-profit groups up to 200 guests to and serve your organization well.

The Trail West booking season is March through early May and mid- to late-August through early November.


We work hard to ensure that our prices match your budget! Pricing is based on your group's needs according to:

  • The number of people in your group
  • The number of nights you will spend at camp
  • Catered and dining room meals.
  • There will be a 1.9% lodging tax added per person, regardless of the organization's tax exempt status.

Additional Info

Do you have a smaller group? Are you looking for a venue to use between September and May? We may still have an option for you!

For smaller groups of less than 50, we have several housing options. ​ We don't provide a meal plan for groups of under 50 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. ​ The following accommodations have their own kitchens for food preparation: Red Deer Chalet, Shavano Chalet, Antero Chalet, The Elk Chalet, and Condos. ​ Please see their descriptions in the housing options below. ​
