Calling All 6th Graders

Join us Wednesday thru Friday, October 7th-9th for 3 days of fun and learning at the Estes Park Center YMCA of the Rockies. Legacy Academy has reserved the Pattie Hyde Barclay Reunion cabin for our lodging. Students will attend classes designed to meet Colorado State education standards, and relax with activities of their choice such as the Center’s pool, our lodge, shooting some hoops, or creating crafts in the craft barn.

When students were asked on a surymcavey after last year’s trip, “What would you tell next year’s 6th graders about Outdoor Education,” students said: 

“Be ready for some fun!” ,“That this trip will be impacting you for life!”, “I would tell them that they are going to have an amazing time in Estes Park!”
