YMCA of the Rockies: Colorado’s most family-friendly vacation

I’m a longtime fan of YMCA of the Rockies and we have been going there since Haddie was one. I mean, just look at these little cuties!

 If you’re not familiar with this family resort and conference center, it is the most affordable family and fun vacation you will have in Colorado. Period. As my friend Julie described it: “YMCA of the Rockies is like summer camp for the whole family.”

My family has stayed in lodges or cabins at their two locations–860-acre Estes Park Center borders Rocky Mountain National Park and Snow Mountain Ranch is a 5,100-acre family ranch located between Winter Park and Grand Lake. (Go here for info on each of their properties).

I was ecstatic when we were invited to Estes Park on a blogger retreat last week. The last time I was at that location was for a Johnson family reunion when Hadley was 3 and Bode was 1. My, how they’ve changed.
