Pop-up glamping experiences also are a truly distinct option for groups.

Under Canvas, an outdoor destination hospitality experience with upscale, safari-style accommodations, is adding Under Canvas Bryce Canyon in southwest Utah to its collection of eight other locations in June 2022. Under Canvas currently operates in Yellowstone and Glacier in Montana; Moab, Zion and Lake Powell-Grand Staircase in Utah; Grand Canyon in Arizona; Mount Rushmore in South Dakota; Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee; and Acadia in Maine. 

Situated on 750 acres of secluded high mountain plains with expansive views of Mt. Dutton to the west and the Escalante Mountains to the east. Located 15 minutes from Bryce Canyon National Park, the solar-powered Under Canvas Bryce Canyon will be 7,600 feet in elevation and surround by forest and feature 50 canvas tents on elevated decks, each with a private en suite bathroom with hot shower, sink and flushing toilet. Far from rustic, tents are furnished with plush king-size beds, luxury linens, USB charging packs, bedside lanterns and a wood-burning stove. 

The new camp centers is designed around a lobby lounge tent and large outdoor patio and will feature locally infused food and beverage concepts along with fire pits and all the fixings for nightly s’mores. Complimentary camp and adventure programming is included. The inaugural season for the Bryce Canyon camp is June 2 - September 30, 2022. 

For groups, Under Canvas can build an original event venue for a corporate retreat or private event at a desired location with its pop-up glamping experiences. A front desk, housekeeping, turndown service, campfire tenders, upscale restroom and shower trailers can be part of the mix. A beauty bar, bar and lounge, meal space and lawn games also are on the menu of possibilities.

It’s that time of year when groups are readying plans for holiday events, and employers are looking at how to celebrate their teams. In the fall 2022 issue of Colorado Meetings + Events, we looked at the state of holiday gatherings and found that they indeed are on the rebound. Some gatherings are going big after two years of not getting together or generally scaling back, while others are opting for in-office parties, small dinners, or community service projects. 

 

Looking for something a little different to plug your group into and a venue they will be talking about long after a gathering concludes? Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the winter home and laboratory of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, might be the solution with its Sunsets and Sips and Wellness Series

 

Colorado has 58 mountain peaks exceeding 14,000 feet, known locally as “fourteeners” or “14ers.” This is more than any other state and includes the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak, where standing at the summit in 1893 inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem “America” that today is known as the song “America the Beautiful.”
