Venue: Our conference is being held at Frost Valley YMCA Camp,  a gorgeous, 5,000-acre setting nestled in the Catskill Mountains about 2-½ hours from New York City. Early October should be near peak Autumn colors with delightful daytime temperatures in the low to mid 60s and crisp evenings in the low 50s to upper 40s. Enjoy paddle-boarding or canoes on the lake, or short hike to a 30-foot on-site waterfall. There are numerous hiking and walking trails on the grounds.

Program Summary: We have a great program of speakers, workshops, how-to sessions, live entertainment, peace award presentations, Peace Pole installation, and more. A highlight will be the presentation by Chief Vincent Mann of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation on the struggles indigenous peoples still face, and what non-tribals can do to help. There will be plenty of time for getting to know one another and share stories over a beverage (BYO). Each lodging facility has a fire pit with firewood so we can enjoy crisp Fall evenings around a campfire. 

Accommodations: We have reserved a range of lodging options including yurts, cabins, and lodge rooms. For the yurts and cabins we are using bottom bunks only, so you can store your stuff on the top bunk (or vice versa). The lodge rooms have two bunkbeds per room. For these rooms we offer the option of 1 or 2 people per bunk. Prices shown on the registration form are for two nights and include bedding, linens, and towels. For more information about these rooms see the LODGING webpage.

Frost Valley also has motel-style rooms at Lakeside Lodge, and charming B&B style rooms at "the Castle". These accommodations are quite expensive ($190 per night) and must be booked separately (call 845-985-2291 ext. 450 or email 

Local Hosting: There are very few Servas members near the venue, and the ones that are nearby have reserved hosting for international attendees. 

NYC Hosting: Hosting may be available before and after the conference, for those wishing to extend their visit. This is being coordinated by the local Servas group.  See the registration form or email

Meals: Six meals plus refreshments are included with registration beginning with dinner Friday and ending with a box lunch on Sunday. Vegan options will be included with each meal.

Registration: Early-bird pricing of $149 per attendee is available until August 31st, after which the fee increases to $199. One-day, Saturday attendance (two meals) is $99. Registration closes on Sunday, September 24th at 12:00 AM EDT.
