YXL West is going home to Horn Creek!

|

Due to cut­backs at Glo­ri­eta, the con­fer­ence cen­ter near Santa Fe, NM that has hosted YXL for the last 7 years, we are mov­ing to a new loca­tion for 2012.

Or per­haps I should say we’re mov­ing back to an old loca­tion — Horn Creek, Col­orado, in the Wet Moun­tain Val­ley near West­cliffe, Col­orado. We’ll be in the same San­gre de Cristo moun­tains as Glo­ri­eta, just about 5 hours fur­ther north.

YXL started at Horn Creek in 1977, back when we called it “National Pres­by­ter­ian and Reformed Youth Lead­er­ship Con­fer­ence.” We relo­cated to Glo­ri­eta for cost rea­sons, but we’re glad to say that it is once again afford­able for us to go back.

Horn Creek is a fan­tas­tic place. We’ll be at the Ranch facil­ity, which is a per­fect setup for a con­fer­ence like YXL. You can read more about it here: http://www.horncreek.org/

We will of course have to change the name of this website :-)

Can’t wait to see you all there!

YXL West is Moving!

|

You may have heard that Glo­ri­eta Con­fer­ence Cen­ter where YXL West has been meet­ing for the last 7 years has been going through some finan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties (the leaks in the roof may have been a hint). They have announced a major cut back in their oper­a­tions, and will only be host­ing the Cen­trifuge camps in the sum­mer. You can read more about it here: http://glorietaconferencecenter.org/statement

Glo­ri­eta has been a won­der­ful host to us, and we are deeply thank­ful for their ser­vice to the king­dom. Please join us in pray­ing that God would bless them and guide them through this time. We would all love to see Glo­ri­eta thriv­ing again.

So, we’re mov­ing to a new loca­tion in 2012, most likely in Col­orado. We’re final­iz­ing the agree­ment now and will announce the new loca­tion as soon as every­thing is confirmed.

YXL = $2,000 Scholarship to Covenant College

|

Another great rea­son to come to YXL Glo­ri­eta – Covenant Col­lege offers a $500 per year schol­ar­ship to any stu­dent who attends YXL at least one year. The schol­ar­ship grows the more years you come. 2 years of YXL = $1,000/year, 3 years of YXL = $1,500/year, 4 years = $2,000/year.

So if you’re even think­ing about going to Covenant Col­lege, com­ing to YXL is a no-brainer. It pays for itself if you only come once.

If you’ve gone to YXL before and are going to Covenant, email hid­den; JavaScript is required and she will pass your name along for the scholarship.

New YXL Glorieta Web Site!

|

Hey, we’ve got a new web site for YXL Glo­ri­eta! We’ve updated the look and made it eas­ier for us to keep the site fresh. We’ve posted lots of pho­tos and video from the con­fer­ence, and we’ll have record­ings of our speak­ers from 2008 up soon.

http://www.yxlglorieta.org

Our theme for YXL 2009 is “Called to Action.” Read about the theme.
Dates: June 20–27, 2009

Reg­is­tra­tion should be up by the end of Octo­ber. We’re final­iz­ing the price for raft­ing, since we’re hop­ing to do a full-day raft­ing trip.

Let us know what you think about the new site!
