What a remarkable month June has been. We held two camps both hosted at YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park Center. Both camps were father/son “Passage to Manhood” adventures. Both were uniquely beautiful and different.
I am continually amazed and gratified to watch how God orchestrates a given group of people, incredible natural beauty, outdoor activities and meaningful content into a one of a kind adventure.
These grand adventures would not be possible without our 20 volunteer staff, who’s planning and efforts combine to create this outstanding outdoor experience for all our guests.
Here are just some of the comments we received from the fathers and sons.
