After a successful inaugural season last year, Conestoga Ranch, a glamping resort overlooking Garden City’s Bear Lake, is introducing several new additions for 2016. Open this year from May 13 to October 2, groups and individual guests can enjoy a new yoga tent to relax, rejuvenate and kick off the day before setting out on the lake or surrounding trails. Special yoga and boot camp sessions and massages can be arranged upon request. Also, Conestoga Ranch has added more wagon circles so groups can create their own enclave and gather around a shared fire pit. An array of team-building activities, combined with transforming Campfire Grill restaurant into a meeting space, results in productive and fun company outings. Firewood and s’mores kits are included with lodging, which can accommodate up to 172 guests.
