Estes Park, Colorado, USA
The Encampment takes place in the fall of 2018 from Sunday, October 14, through Friday, October 19, 2018, in the beautiful high altitudes of Estes Park Center – YMCA of the Rockies’ in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, USA.
On retreat from your everyday life, in the spectacular setting of the Rocky Mountains, you will have the chance to experience the greater direction and purpose of your life.
Together we will delve into our relationship with Knowledge and build connections with others in the Worldwide Community of students who are responding to the New Message at this increasingly critical time in history.
To be prepared for this level of engagement with the Messenger, Marshall Vian Summers, and to build a concentrated environment, please familiarize yourself with the Prerequisites and Recommendations.
We are also asking students who are coming to Encampment, if possible, to book their flights through a service we use at dev14.newmessage.org/shop. This service donates a small percentage of the cost of the items purchased through it to The Society and New Message. This is a simple way to help contribute to the financial stability of the New Message.

“Walking with the messenger, hearing the revelations, free time to be with other students (it’s when friends were made!)” H.A. (UK)
“To meet the Messenger and other students. As for the program: I really liked the groups time we had to share and talk about the questions you asked us. And Marshall’s interventions were so very deep and welcome.” D.L. (France)
“Very deep and meaningful and I found the group work very revealing and helpful for me. I have taken this away from encampment and I am continuing to consider what was raised in these groups. Particularly, the questions about what obstacles are you facing in your life and how will you navigate these? What must you be doing and not doing in your life? The personal time in the afternoon was very useful as so much information is being given in the program, it is beneficial to have some time to integrate it, before the next session commences.” R.B. (UK)
“After attending the Encampment, I felt a lot clearer inside, like I had been cleared out. I found that things that had been bothering me prior to the Encampment didn’t have such a hold on my mind anymore.” – Dominic, UK
“The Encampment deepens my studenthood and builds my relationship pillar. I always leave with a greater sense of what I need to do. It’s almost as if some ‘gates’ have been unlocked within me. I feel more committed and determined to play my part.” – Student
“I am starting to experience relationships of a kind I’ve not before: a deep, abiding love, with no baggage. Just purpose, recognition, connection. Thank you for this treasured experience.” – Jeffrey, Georgia, USA
“The impact is incredible, finding the New Message is big, getting to know Marshall, his family and The Society made it all even bigger. It gave me more energy to participate, to be more disciplined with my practices and to become more and more a person of the New Message.” – Diego, Oregon, USA
“At some point while flying home a profound shift silently took place. There was no great celebration for this news, there was no marching band or choir singing, just this incredible peace that had settled into my heart – this absolute knowing – that I had crossed the threshold of doubting and had entered into absolute wonderment that, yes, I had indeed met the Messenger. He is in the world. He is real. And I am going to do what part I can, to help The Society and the New Message from God.” – Ana, USA
“It became very clear to me the value and the gift of it, to others and also me. I feel empowered in a way I have never felt in my life. I feel like I was activated in some way… the Mystery. I feel much more capable and stronger in my role at home and within my studenthood. This was growing in me slowly, but it’s as if a switch was turned on. I feel so deeply blessed. Thank you!” – Student
