— Hello All You Witnesses —
WE HAVE SOME BIG (unexpected) NEWS
We are writing because THERE ARE SOME VERY BIG CHANGES TO THE AUGUST LEARNING RETREAT AND THEY AFFECT YOU!
WE HAVE HAD TO CHANGE THE VENUE and it is imperative you know all of the new information ASAP because it will potentially affect your travel plans.
THE ORIGINAL PLAN
We originally booked a Lodge at the YMCA of the Rockies, in Estes Park, Colorado to host our Learning Retreats. The lodge was one of the few places in the entire Rocky Mountain Region of the country had plenty of room for us all to stay, play, eat, and learn in the same cabin and was about two hours drive from the Denver International Airport.
THE CURVE BALL
Immediately after our March Learning Retreat (which was otherwise incredible), four different attendees came down with bedbug infestations. We did a little digging and discovered that other lodges on the YMCA property were also infested with bedbugs and that several buried online reviews had reported problems with bedbugs, as well. Needless to say, this has been horrifying and we have been so sad that the negligence of the YMCA affected our group in this way. We also refuse to put any future attendees at risk, and have spent the past weeks souring the country for any and all options for better, more trustworthy venues that fit our needs.
We have found a place that honestly feels like an All You Witness dream come true. We couldn’t have designed a place better suited to the needs and hopes we have. Rather than a giant, heavily trafficked YMCA church camp, we have found a privately owned sprawling Lodge Ranch Heaven, just for us. This private estate is situated right on the edge of the beautiful Green River in Southern Wyoming and has no shortage of nature’s delights. It also has plenty of well-appointed accommodations for our sleeping, playing, eating, learning and (SO PUMPED) swimming needs.
WHAT THAT MEANS FOR YOU
We have put so much heart and soul into creating All You Witness and have worked hard to make sure the place we move this beloved thing to is not just an upgrade in location and experience, but that it’s also easily accessible from a major international airport.
The Lodge Range is approximately 2 hours drive from the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Once again, your only job is to get yourself to the Lodge and we will take care of the rest. As we did with the March group, we are setting up a facebook group just for you fantastic August folks in order to coordinate airport ride shares, etc.
WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU NOW
It’s important to us that you feel cared for and that all of your questions get answered. Please check the boxes below and fill out appropriate info.
