Your Estes Park YMCA lodging includes all your meals. It’s a hard deal to beat as off-site lodging in Estes Park can be expensive. As well, food establishments outside of the YMCA require additional time and travel.
To make your retreat experience easy and stress-free, we encourage you to stay on-site at the Estes Park YMCA.
All rooms in the YMCA’s Wind River Lodge are spacious, mountain rustic, hotel-style with two queen beds, a full bath and a private balcony with spectacular views. Watch this video to see what a typical room looks like at the Estes Park YMCA.

Samudra Shakti will emphasize our confluence (Samudra), our coming together to build a strong, passionate community of like-minded hearts. The conference has a lot of scheduled, “community time.” The connections built by staying on site, networking, mingling, creating relationships and co-participation, is the reason we are coming together. We strongly encourage you to arrange your lodging at the YMCA.
If you choose to stay off-site, you will be charged an additional $25 per day ($100 total) which is the YMCA required day-use fee.
We have been building momentum and excitement for the past year and have a large “Watch List.” Response rate and active interest has been awesome. This will be a fantastic gathering.
Yes, Samudra Shakti will sell out, so please register as soon as possible.
