The International Gay Coaches Conference is held each year at Easton Mountain in Greenwich, NY.
Easton Mountain is a community, retreat center, and sanctuary created by gay menas a gift to the world. They host a year round program of workshops, programs and events that provide an oppportunity to celebrate, heal, transform, and integrate body, mind, and spirit.
It is truly a venue like no other and provides a welcoming and at the same time spectacular backdrop for our conference every year.
In 2020, Easton Mountain celebrated its 20th year as a retreat for gay men, with a mission to make the world a better place by helping people to thrive and to live their most authentic lives.
Sessions are centered around the main building which includes The Great Hall and all catering facilities.
All meals are provided as part of the conference price at no extra cost. A number of options are provided for each meal and special dietary requirements can be catered for.
Sessions are also delivered within The Temple, a separate building adjacent to the pond.
Accommodation is also provided within the cost of the conference. This is located at The Guest House, which offers two room options. These are quad rooms, which comprise two sets of bunk beds and are shared by up to four men. There is an option to upgrade to a semi-private room, which comprise two larger beds to be shared by up to two men.
All rooms have in recent years been refurbished to offer a very comfortable standard of accommodation with en-suite facilities.
Accommodation will be provided for the 2021 conference in line with the COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event. Easton Mountain takes the protection of guests and staff members very seriously and has been able to continue to host residential events during the pandemic with reduced capacity.
