2012 National Conference

September 24-30: National Conference and Idaho Mountain Festival at City of Rocks

National Conference General Information: They are traditionally our highest attended events. At them, you will get to know Solid Rockers from across the country, receive teaching from the National Director and other guest speakers on evangelism, experience worship and devotionals and hang out & climb together.  We hold our "even" year National Conference in the Rocky Mountain Region.

Idaho Mountain Festival is the newest climbing festival to hit Idaho and will be September 27-30, 2012 at Castle Rock State Park and City of Rocks National Reserve. The IMF will be joining similar festivals, such as the International Climbers Festival, Red Rock Rendezvous, and New River Rendezvous, to offer a four-day event where climbers, as well as trail-runners, can gather to enjoy endless climbing, trail races, activities, giveaways, music, meals, and workshops. Visit www.IdahoMountainFest.com for complete details. SRCFC will be holding its National Conference in conjunction with the event and our outreach will include providing a meal and having an outreach table at the trade fair.
