It's called Lariat, and it's a beautiful, self-contained lodge. Lariat can accommodate up to 55 people, has an area large enough to hold group meetings with a small sound system and overhead video, and includes a full kitchen to prepare your own meals. Primarily, we wanted to offer smaller groups this option, because we don’t provide a meal plan for groups under 100 people. So, this gives groups like yours the chance to stay at a Young Life camp, and keep your cost down by preparing your own meals. For more information, download the Lariat flier
