Our summer staff are the best of the best. We have a good mix of returners and new staff members. We look for adults who are enthusiastic about working with children in the outdoors, everything else we can train.
All of our staff (including kitchen and maintenance) are fingerprinted, background checked through FBI, CBI, and TRAILS, a check on the National Sex Offenders sites, have reference checks, plus go through multiple training on Child Abuse Prevention. We are licensed by Colorado Child Care following all laws, and we are accredited through the American Camp Association (ACA) and Praesidium.
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.
