If traveling by air

Because we’re starting our program at 4pm on Sunday, it will be difficult for a group to fly into Denver and arrive in time to register and attend our opening session.

We recommend groups consider flying in on Saturday and staying in a hotel in the area Saturday night.

The drive from Denver International Airport to Silver Cliff Ranch is about 3 hours.

If you are an individual planning to fly in we may be able to arrange for you to get transportation with one of the other groups flying in.

Whether group or individual, contact our Registrar, Chris Anderson, to discuss your options.

If traveling by car, van or bus

Please plan to arrive no later than 3pm on Sunday. Registration is from 2-3:30pm, and our opening session will start at 4pm.

See the Directions and Maps page for details on how to get to the Horn Creek Conference Center by car.

If you bring a car, van or bus to camp, there is a place to park your vehicle right at the Mountain Meadows facility where YXL is hosted.

Housing is available for your driver if someone comes with you just to drive. They will need to register as a “Staff Guest.” See the Costs page for details.
