2024's IN-PERSON REUNION WILL BE IN COLORADO

Estes Park - YMCA of the Rockies

June 14 - 17, 2024

Check out the Red Button Links!

 

Our Theme? "FROM THE HIMALAYAS TO THE ROCKIES"

YMCA of the Rockies is huge with LOTS of activities available at Estes Park Center!  This will be a low-key, and nicely-planned Reunion and Program since there is so much to do at the Center itself with immense beauty all around us. The YMCA of the Rockies is surrounded on three sides by Rocky Mountain National Park.  

  • 860 Acres of Ponderosa Pines and Spectacular Vistas
  • 214 Private Cabins
  • 9 Reunion Cabins
  • 9 Hotel Style Lodges
  • There are lots of cabins at Estes Park Center, but first priority for cabin reservations goes to YMCA members and donors and opens to everyone else April 3, 2024.   
  • Camping and Yurts within YMCA of the Rockies are available but only at Snow Mountain in Winter Park, Colorado and open April 3, 2024.
  • If you are headed to Rocky Mountain National Park even if you are not hiking, as of early May 2024, Timed Entry Permits are required.  Click Here for that information and what to do.  This link is also in the red button about Rocky Mountain National Park.  

 

Looking for other campgrounds? Click Here to see the red button link about camping areas outside of YMCA of the Rockies. East Portal Campground, just outside the Y's East Portal entrance, is Alumni-recommended, accommodates tents and RVs, and has full restroom and shower facilities. 

   

Like our system for Arizona 2023, you will book your own lodging. The Reunion is at Estes Park Center and NOT Snow Mountain Center in Winter Park, Colorado.  

Reservations for Lodge hotel-style rooms ARE OPEN NOW.  You will register directly with YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park Center.
