YMCA of the Rockies is happy to provide you a fun and safe experience.

YMCA of the Rockies is happy to provide you a safe experience full of the adventure, excitement and relaxation you expect when you visit as we move past the disruption and restrictions caused by COVID-19.

Guest Safety Guidelines and Practices

Consistent with Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment guidelines, YMCA of the Rockies is committed to protecting the health of our guests and our staff.

We ask that all guests and staff demonstrate the YMCA values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility toward each other as we all navigate these changes.


We are asking guests to follow the protocols below regarding face coverings while at YMCA of the Rockies:

  • All guests who are fully vaccinated, and/or those with medical conditions or disabilities preventing them from wearing a mask, may go without masks indoors and outdoors at YMCA of the Rockies.
  • Consistent with the YMCA of the Rockies core values, we will trust guests to be honest about vaccination status and will not ask you about your vaccination status.
  • Any guest who is not fully vaccinated is encouraged to wear a mask when indoors where members of a different household are present.
  • Day camp and residential campers are required to wear a mask as aligned with child care licensing requirements in the state of Colorado.
  • Please be respectful when visiting other businesses, as each business may have their own requirements regarding face coverings.

Cleaning Protocols

YMCA of the Rockies is also committed to enhanced cleaning and sanitation measures. These cleaning protocols are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and state and local public health officials.

All public areas of YMCA of the Rockies buildings are deeply sanitized on a regular basis using hospital-grade EPA-approved agents and virus eliminating chemicals. High-touch areas are sanitized multiple times per day with CDC-recommended cleaning materials.

Please note that there is currently no maid service available. Linens can be exchanged at the guest laundry facilities. For lodge room guests,  towels and supplies are available at the linen tables in lodge lobbies. Currently there is no self-serve coffee available in lodges. Please visit the dining hall or cafe for your morning coffee needs!
