What is the difference between ASPIRE and MASTERMIND?

TRANSPORTATION & LODGING
TRANSPORTATION ON YOUR OWN
We recommend renting a car and carpooling with colleagues.
Round Trip Shuttle from DIA to Estes Park (Plan ahead, book ahead). If arriving to DIA after 10:00am on Day 1, then you should carpool with colleagues or rent a car. 10:00am is the last best shuttle to Estes.
Can I get to Estes the night prior or stay an extra night? Yes! The cost is on you, but you can extend your stay. Ask about current lodging and meal rates and book directly with the YMCA Estes Park by calling 888-613-9622. General lodging information can be found at https://ymcarockies.org/Lodging. Important information about staying in the same room throughout your stay is shared in the confirmation email.
Can I bring a partner or kids to stay with me? Yes! The YMCA of the Rockies was recently named the #1 Family Resort in the Country by USA Today. There are many things for partners and kids to do onsite and in the area. While they won't see you much during Mastermind and are responsible for purchasing their own meals, they are welcome to come. Additional information about bringing guests is shared in the confirmation email.
