Though we are not directly affiliated with the YMCA of the Rockies, we are fortunate to be able to use their Snow Mountain Ranch facilities in Fraser, Colorado for 6 out of 11 of our camps. A family vacation destination in itself, Snow Mountain Ranch is nestled on 5,100 acres in a beautiful wilderness setting just two hours west of Denver.
Most everything you would like in a Colorado mountain vacation package is right there, including hiking, fishing, canoeing, swimming, roller skating, volleyball, tennis, horseback riding, hayrides, and more!
Snow Mountain Ranch is located a few miles west of the ski resort, Winter Park, which has a full roster of summertime fun and activities. Snow Mountain is also just a few miles east of Granby and Grand Lake, Colorado, both of which boast many summer activities, including boating on large lakes (for Colorado). Forget that expensive skiing in Colorado –summer is the best and most beautiful time to be here!

Though we are not directly affiliated with the YMCA of the Rockies, we are fortunate to be able to use their Estes Park Center in Estes Park, Colorado for our Southeast Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage Camp! Like it’s sister location, Snow Mountain Ranch, the Estes Park Center is a family vacation destination in itself.
Estes Park Center means different things to different people. The adventurous come for action and excitement and to explore miles of trails in the Rocky Mountains. Others choose to take one of our arts and crafts classes, spend quiet time on the deck of our library or enjoy quality entertainment. With more activities than anywhere else, most included free in your stay, everyone in your family will find something to do.
