Enriching Women's Lives at Camp Experience™ in Colorado Springs

Enjoy a transformative weekend at Camp Experience in Colorado Springs.

Camp Experience in Colorado Springs

You knew when you registered for Camp Experience that it was a retreat, a chance to network with like-minded peers, female professionals, civic leaders, moms and volunteers. You knew it was held in a relaxing, natural setting. You hoped you might rejuvenate and even reconnect with your passions. But after you arrive, you'll find it to be so much more.


CampExperience™ in Colorado Springs takes place this September 18-20 was created for successful women interested in building their lives, careers and connections. It provides busy women a reprieve from their everyday lives, and an opportunity to reconnect with themselves and their peers. This very special retreat fosters education, personal growth and amazing experiences, in an environment of positive energy, creativity and playful fun. Our participants and speakers share their gifts and resources with important charities that benefit women

Between listening to life-changing talks by noted speakers, learning powerful educational tools and participating in creative discussions, you’ll have learned that this unique community of women doesn’t just come together once a year for a retreat. They stay connected and are part of an impassioned organization that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help homeless women and children.

Your personal transformation at Camp Experience may be profound, but the real inspiration lies in seeing so many other female professionals, entrepreneurs, volunteers, community leaders, moms and "momtrepreneurs" sharing their wisdom and strengthening their bonds. The relaxed program of lectures and workshops can help you redefine your life, your visions and your goals. The social gatherings, eating, drinking, and going to the spa at Cheyenne Mountain Resort may just connect you with new friends for life.

At Cheyenne Mountain Resort we look forward to welcoming all of our guests for CampExperience 2015 in Colorado Springs!

At Cheyenne Mountain Resort, pets are important to us and we invite our guests to join us at our pet-friendly property when enjoying the festival and taking in the wonderful sights of Colorado Springs.

In years past one of the main events of the festival has  been a 5k walk/run that is open to both humans and their four legged companions. The race offers a fun way to spend quality time with animals, while getting a healthy dose of exercise. You can expect treats for both man and animal, and those of legal drinking age can also enjoy a complimentary beer.

Apart from the race itself is a beer garden. You can expect additional activities such as a pet look-a-like contest and even an agility course for your pets. Pawtoberfest provides an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded souls who care about animal welfare. It also gives your canine friends a chance to frolic with their own kind in a safe environment.

During your visit to Colorodo Springs, reserve your stay at Cheyenne Mountain Resort. We are undoubtedly crazy about canines and 0ne of just a few pet friendly hotels in Colorado Springs!  In 2013, we even adopted our very own irresistible St. Bernard puppy from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. Her name is Cheyenne and she wins the hearts of our guests throughout our property.

In celebration of Cheyenne's adoption, Cheyenne Mountain Resort offers the Cheyenne's Bed & Biscuit Club.  Guests will receive information highlighting area pet services, including veterinarians, pet shops and groomers, as well as insider tips for dog walking routes, dog parks, dog-friendly cafes and much more when they check in with their favorite pooch.

The Manitou Cliff Dwellings are ancient homes built into the sandstone walls of the mountains by the region's native inhabitants, the Anasazi. Garden of the Gods is an area of Pikes Peak that is renowned for having some of the park's best views. Here, it is possible to see various sandstone formations, and the visitors’ center provides a thorough natural history of the region.

Challenging Pikes Peak Race Set for August

 This portion of the Triple Crown of Running series makes for a weekend of endurance.

Pike's Peak Race

Are you ready for America's ultimate challenge? It's time once again for the Pikes Peak Ascent & Marathon that will take place on August 15 and 16, 2015, and marks the 60th anniversary of this prestigious event.

If there's one word to describe this Pikes Peak race, it's unpredictable. Not only do you have to run incredible uphill distances, but also face potentially drastic weather changes of up to 50 degrees between the starting line and finish. Elevation gain of the race from start to summit is a challenging 7,815' (2,382m)!
 
The races are not for new runners! The half marathon takes place on the 15th, while Pikes Peak Marathon comes the following morning on August 16, with qualifiers needing to have completed either race in the past three years or have completed a half-marathon in under 2:25:00 or a marathon in under 5:45:00.

Part of the Triple Crown of Running series, runners can take on either Pikes Peak race as well as the Garden of the Gods 10M, and the Summer RoundUp Trail Run for the ultimate endurance accomplishment.  
 
Before and after these races, it's a good idea to get some rest, and there's nothing better than Cheyenne Mountain Resort for the ultimate in relaxing accommodations. Schedule a much deserved massage at our newly opened Alluvia Spa to refresh those race-weary muscles or take a dip in our heated outdoor pool then sit by our fire pits and enjoy the majestic view of the mountains you just conquered.  Visit our website for more information.
