 GARDEN OF THE GODS COLLECTION INTRODUCES NEW MEETING AND EVENT SPACE

The View at Kissing Camels Joins Resort & Private Club’s Existing Portfolio of Beautiful Indoor & Outdoor Spaces

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – October 26, 2017 – Garden of the Gods Collection, a legendary private club and luxury resort overlooking majestic Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods Park, boasts more than 10,000 sq. ft. of some of the state’s most beautiful meeting and event space. This year, a new event space has been introduced: The View at Kissing Camels.

Opening in November of this year, The View at Kissing Camels is located directly above Kissing Camels Grille and Golf Club, overlooking Garden of the Gods Collection’s 27-hole championship Kissing Camels Golf Course. The 2,887 sq. ft. space will feature floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase scenic views of Pikes Peak and the red rock formations of Garden of the Gods park. With space for up to 150 people, guests have the option to include a dance floor, bar and sweetheart table for wedding receptions. Perfect for golf tournaments, or business and corporate meetings, state-of-the-art A/V systems are available.

“We are excited to offer The View at Kissing Camels event space to our guests for their special gatherings,” said Miranda Johnson, director of catering and conference services. “This new venue, in addition to our existing 11 meeting rooms and three outdoor spaces, further complement the Collection, continuing to make it an upscale, luxury destination for meetings, weddings and special events.”

In addition to providing meeting space and state of the art amenities, including gourmet catering services, state-of-the-art AV equipment and ample parking, Garden of the Gods Collection also offers groups a variety of experiential and adventure-based packages designed to build leadership skills, spark creativity and foster team building and personal efficacy. A variety of group packages are available and can be customized to any group. Highlights include:

  • A beginner, four-hour rock climbing excursion in which groups experience Garden of the Gods and its towering red rock formations, led by Front Range Climbing Co.;
  • Olympic-themed challenge events held on the Collection’s property with games designed to fit all levels of complexity and activity;
  • A Space Mission Simulator that mimics space flight, complete with a Mission Control room designed after NASA Johnson Space Center and an orbiting space station modeled after the laboratory on the International Space Station at Colorado Springs’ Challenger Learning Center. Here, team members will work as scientists and engineers to solve real-world problems.

“We are so pleased with our continued additions to the property,” said Laura Neumann, managing director. “We offer some of the most unique programs for groups and corporation looking to promote teambuilding, growth and synergy.
