Bold & Gold

Be Yourself, Make New Friends, and Find Your Own Trail

Summer 2020 Update

As the COVID-19 situation continues to change across the country, each day we are actively assessing the latest research and data, reviewing CDC and local guidelines, and checking in with our communities to our determine how to safely run programming and how to best fulfill our mission. Some locations have made the difficult choice not to run programs this summer, some YMCA's are still unclear when and if they can operate, and some are running modified programs. Check out our location page to find out more.

“My son didn’t just have a “great time,” he came back with a better understanding of himself, a greater appreciation for the beauty and the challenge of the outdoors, and the experiential learning he took part in reminded him that there is nothing as powerful as building human connections and coming to know, rely on, and appreciate new people. And he had fun! Thank you!”
