Lodging Options

  • Camping at BMC – We hope to set aside an area of the back lawn for tent sites and a few non-electrical camper/RV in the parking lot. Email all requests to Jen.
  • Home Stays – We hope to have a small number of home stay options available. Email all requests to BMC at churchadmin@bouldermennonite.org.
  • Hotel Stays – To book hotel lodging, please arrange directly with hotel. There are a variety of options within 10 – 15 minutes of the church. A list of possibilities will be added.


Costs

We ask you to “Give if you can. Give what you can. Give more if you can” – it’s worked in the past and we expect we can cover our costs in the future.


Meals

Meals over the weekend will be on your own with the exception of Saturday lunch. We will have a special Hmong fundraiser lunch, donations paid at the meal.

If you have questions or would like help with registration, please call Jen Dudenhefer at 970-591-2384 or by email administrator@mountainstatesmc.org.
