The YMCA of the Rockies is a globally-known conference & family center that annually serves more than 200,000 guests. Our mission includes putting Christian principles into practice in a way that builds healthy spirit, mind and body for all. Our guest-centered focus is based on providing exceptional service to all who visit.
Our two unique centers offers amazing opportunities to experience the Rocky Mountains, sitting at over 8000 feet above sea level, and located on either side of the Continental Divide.
On the eastern side, just one hour from Boulder, CO, is the Estes Park Center (EPC), which is bordered by Rocky Mountain National Park on 3 sides and offers direct access to the park. EPC is a great place to live the mountain lifestyle with access to hiking, climbing and many other outdoor activities, as well as the cities of the Front Range.
Snow Mountain Ranch (SMR) is located on the western side, in a more remote area of Colorado known as the Fraser Valley, near Granby and Winter Park. In the winter, SMR is home to one of the largest Nordic ski areas in the country, with over 100 km of trails on the 5000-acre property. Winters at SMR can last up to eight months, but for winter enthusiasts, there is no place like it, with days and days of powder. In the summertime, SMR is surrounded by back-country forests and trails, with opportunities to get your boots or wheels in the dirt for many hours of fun.
YMCA of the Rockies puts Christian principles into practice through programs, staff and facilities in an environment that builds healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
We will accomplish this by serving conferences of a religious, educational, or recreational nature; providing unifying experiences for families; offering traditional summer camping experiences for boys and girls; and serving our staff with leadership opportunities and productive work experiences.
