Trekker Trips take campers on exciting 2-week adventures filled with fun and discovery. These trips take campers out of Colorado to explore new areas of the country. Each trip offers unique perspectives on the area we visit and allows campers to make new friends. We also take this time to teach campers how to live in harmony with nature as we camp out in different areas.
The campers will be under the watchful eye of our counselors who are all 20 or older. Each staff member has a minimum of Wilderness First Aid, is background checked (fingerprinted, FBI/CBI, Trails, Sex Offender Search), receives 17 days of intensive training for working with different age groups and goes through child abuse prevention trainings through Darkness to Light, The Redwoods Group and Praesidium.
We strive to ensure that every Camp Chief Ouray camper has an impactful experience. We offer scholarships to help make the experience affordable for all families.
Mission: YMCA of the Rockies puts Christian principles into practice through programs, staff and facilities in an environment that builds a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Our goal is to offer challenging experiences to build leaders through life-long skill development in a safe, imaginative, natural setting. We instill confidence through independence and interpersonal skills. We challenge our campers to discover their true selves.
