Rest is waiting

​For more than 60 years, Young Life has set the standard by building state-of-the-art, comfortable, well-designed facilities that reflect God’s glorious creation. At Windy Gap, we offer outstanding lodging, amenities and personalized service at competitive and affordable rates for groups of up to 450 guests. We enjoy sharing our property with Young Life and other non-profit groups throughout the school year.

Due to Young Life's summer camping season, Windy Gap is unable to book outside groups from mid-May through mid-August.

We are available for booking during the school year (mid-August through mid-May).

Note: because we are a 501(c)(3) organization, we are not available for weddings, family reunions, or corporate events. We welcome non-profit, church, or service groups of 250 or larger!
