Unplugged Family Vacations at YMCA of the Rockies this Fall
Sick of booking vacations only to find your teenagers glued to their phones, earphones in, and ignoring you as soon as you get there? Tired of planning trips where you have to endure screaming fits when the television is turned off? Or how about when you go on vacation only to find the adults are glued to their laptop, text messaging and cell phones with constant work pings. At YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, dreams of a truly unplugged vacation become a reality.
Families can choose affordable accommodations including rustic private cabins or hotel-style lodge rooms, where the beauty of the surrounding 800+ acres bordering Rocky Mountain National Park takes precedence over electronics. Most lodge rooms and cabins at YMCA of the Rockies do not have TVs, and while wifi is available, screen time is definitely not at the top of the to-do list. With so many activities on-site, many included at no extra cost for overnight guests, families are easily encouraged to dive into the real world to make tie-dyed clothing together at the new Craft & Design Center, play a few rounds of miniature golf or try out archery for the first time. Families and groups can also take part in guided hikes, fly fishing lessons, horseback riding, swimming or go old-school with indoor roller skating.
So if you’re craving a chance to get away from a routine weekend of wifi wrangling, grocery shopping, soccer games and lawn work, make a reservation for a getaway at YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Fall is the ideal time to experience the elk season with multiple opportunities to see elk on the YMCA of the Rockies property and hear the call of the bull elk fill the valley during the early days of fall. To make the getaway even less stressful, YMCA of the Rockies offers optional dining plans that feature three meals a day (no cooking!) and guests who stay in lodge rooms receive two free breakfasts for each night booked.
