Christmas at YMCA of the Rockies

Good grief — Santa at the mall (starting in what, October?),  Santa at the neighborhood block party, Santa at the gas station….it just seems like Santa is EVERYWHERE this time of year. Let’s face it: kids aren’t stupid enough to believe that the guy on the corner spinning a sign for $10 off an oil change is the real deal, and it can be a tricky balancing act for us parents who Christmas at the YMCA of the Rockieskids are believers.
That’s why there’s a better option; Christmas at YMCA of the Rockies at Estes Park, CO — something where families can actually inspire magic in the kids’ eyes instead of making up paltry excuses about the obvious “rent-a-Santas.”
Here’s how it works: Families staying at the YMCA of the Rockies over the Christmas holiday can make an appointment to have Santa stop by their cabin or lodge and actually bring gifts and spend a few minutes having meaningful family interaction with Santa. The parents will drop off Santa’s haul in advance along with the specifics on the kids’ “naughty or nice” behavior for the year. Santa comes at the set time to surprise the kids in their cabins – a truly personalized, live and magical experience – deliver gifts and have insider knowledge about the kiddos. Now this is a true Christmas Eve Santa interaction that won’t leave the little ones wondering why Santa seems so….lame.
Nestled amid the snow-capped mountains adjacent Rocky Mountain National Park, the cabins and lodge rooms at the YMCA of the Rockies is Estes Park is the perfect place to spend the Christmas holiday, especially for this who want a snowy Christmas morning, a wood-burning fireplace and a more alpine feel to their Christmas (without the ski resort price tags).
There are many other Christmas and New Year’s activities too including:
  • S’mores by the fireplaces
  • Holiday film showings (family-friendly)
  • Gingerbread house-making
  • Snowshoeing
  • Holiday arts & crafts
  • A chapel for Christmas services
And much more….
