The Rocky Mountain Retreat for women is held the weekend after Memorial Day
at YMCA of the Rockies, Snow Mountain Ranch near Granby, Colorado. It
combines rest and recreation in a beautiful mountain setting with stimulating
speakers and discussions on scholarly, spiritual and cultural topics.
Rocky Mountain Retreaters share a love and respect for Mormon roots, whatever
their current affiliation. It is a place where we can all meet on common ground to
break bread together, sing together, learn together, pray together, sometimes weep
together and always laugh together; to bear one another’s burdens and share
The Retreat is not Sunday School, though we strive to discuss and understand
It’s not Time Out For Women, though it is a women’s time-out from daily routines
We are not an advocacy group, though many retreaters are passionate, eloquent
advocates for a variety of causes.
We are not an activist feminist group, though the Retreat is a place where women
comfortably share their perspectives and experiences with feminism.
We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope
to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good
report or praiseworthy, the Retreat is a place where we can seek after these things.
