Committed to Healthy Families

Recently, First Lady Michelle Obama announced a partnership with YMCA to work towards ending childhood obesity. YMCA of the Rockies fully supports an active, healthy lifestyle and offers vacationers numerous ways to stay fit and have fun while traveling. It’s hard to sit still at our 870-acre Estes Park Center and 5,100-acre Snow Mountain Ranch.  Between creative, staff-led programs such as family carnivals, games of broomball, and guided snowshoe hikes and a ton of recreational facilities including an archery range, roller skating rink, and disc golf course there’s no time to get bored.  Most of our accommodations are noticeably missing televisions, further encouraging guests to get out of the room and enjoy the outdoors.

Even during the snowy season, Snow Mountain Ranch helps everyone play outside with over 100km of Nordic trails, cross country ski and snowshoe lessons, an ice skating pond, and tubing hill.

In the summer months, Camp Chief Ouray, helps campers grow mentally, physically, and spiritually through traditional overnight camps, challenger programs, and wilderness adventure camps. Adults can get in on the action at Women’s Fitness, Active Older Adult, and Family Camp.

2012 is the year to commit to your health.  Why not start with planning an active vacation at YMCA of the Rockies?
