Tuesday, July 14, 2020 Leave a Comment

Camp Chief Ouray (CCO) has reserved permits for backpacking trips in multiple scenic locations offering families a personalized adventure, custom-tailored to ability levels.

Trips cater to various skill levels with 2-day excursions on the Snow Mountain Ranch (Granby) property, 4-day backpacking trips in Rocky Mountain National Park, or 7-day trips in the Wind River Range of Wyoming.

  • Each adventure is guided by one or two experienced staff members who will lead the group, facilitate fun games, cook food for the group, and ensure overall health and safety.
  • Each trip is intended for one household. If you would like to go on a trip with another household that you know, contact CCO. The cost will decrease by $250 per family if there are 2 or more families on a trip.
  • Each trip must have a legal guardian for participants under 18 years old.
  • All food and equipment will be provided. However, if you’d prefer to use your own, you are welcome to bring camping equipment.
  • Stay at Snow Mountain Ranch in Granby the night before and/or the night after your trip. Email Ian at iobrien@ymcarockies.org to arrange a discounted stay in a lodge room in addition to the cost of the trip.
