Food, Fun and Fellowship
We had our first CVO gathering in Colorado at SCwSG/CVO headquarters in May 2011. Rochelle Ray, cofounder of CVO and her family stopped in for a long weekend of good food, fun and fellowship. We've had yearly retreats since to gather all volunteers and CVO members for more of the same. During our retreats we enjoy the great outdoors during the beautiful warm summer days here in the mountains of Colorado. We share ideas on better ways to stay connected, increase awareness and work together to help as many people and animals as we can!

Did I forget anything? Or do you want to add something??
TRANSPORTATION: If you are flying in - Eagle is the best option because we can come pick you up (sometimes they go through Denver-it just depends on your airline and flight arrangements).
If you fly into Denver then you’ll need to rent a car - it is about a 2 1/2 - 3 hour drive from the airport to our house-depending on traffic, road conditions and weather. We are picking a summer date to try and avoid weather issues. Eagle airport is 12 minutes from our house.
I do not know about trains or other transportation as everyone is coming in from all over. A Greyhound bus does come to Vail Transportation Center. That is about 45 minutes from our house and they have shuttles & limo’s that can drop you at the house but the ones that come out here to Eagle cost $-there are free buses that will take you all over Vail and the Vail Village is a great place to visit, people watch, eat and shop.
*Most of our team are Christians so that is the stream running through all that we do. However, all backgrounds are welcome to come for this time of renewal.
