Start time for the retreat on October 12 is 6pm. The retreat location (YMCA of the Rockies - Estes Park) is about 2 hours from the Denver International Airport + extra weekend traffic so to be safe the flight would need to land by 1pm to make it in time.
End time on October 14 is noon. Departing flight would need to be 4pm or later to travel the 2 hours to Denver International Airport.
We can help arrange rides. If you need a ride, please let us know how we can help.

Arrival on Friday, October 12
Please plan on arriving to the Patti Hyde Barclay cabin at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park between 5-7 pm as we will begin retreat activities at 7 pm. Someone from Patriarch will arrive as early as 3 pm, so if you would like to come up early and get settled in, we should be there after 3 pm. You do not need to check-in at the registration building. We will check our group in all at once. Due to the variation in arrival times, there will be no retreat dinner on Friday night. Please plan on eating dinner before you arrive.
We are staying at the Patti Hyde Barclay Cabin at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park 2515 Tunnel Rd, Estes Park, CO 80511.
Please bring a Bible. You will not need to bring towels, blankets or pillows as these are provided by the retreat center. It's looking to be a bit more chilly than normal with high temperatures should be in the low 40s and low temperature should be in the teens, so please pack accordingly. There will be extended time on Saturday for outdoor recreation/hiking if you are interested. Frequently men play outdoor lawn games late into the evening, so bring warm clothes if you plan on being outside in the evening.
Meals will be provided all day Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast. We will be enlisting teams of men to help prepare meals, so please plan on helping prep/cook one meal. Please feel free to bring lawn games and indoor games for recreation times.
Departure on Sunday, October 14
Retreat activities will conclude no later than noon on Sunday morning to allow travel time for men returning to homes out of the state and to allow Colorado men time with families on Sunday afternoon/evening. We will be celebrating Mass on Sunday morning.
