Sponsored: The BEST Way to Enjoy Memorial Day Weekend!

Frost Valley YMCA

If you’re considering a Memorial Day Weekend getaway, now’s the time to think about where you want to go and what you want to do. Should you make it a family experience, or an escape for two? Have an adventure, or just kick back and relax?

Many consider Memorial Day Weekend to be the unofficial start of summer, and while thousands will be crowding the coast, fighting for a sandy space to soak up some sun, we have a better idea — why not experience quality time with loved ones in the beautiful Catskill Mountains? Frost Valley YMCA in Claryville, NY — a gorgeous, 5,500-acre retreat center and summer camp — is offering an all-inclusive Memorial Day Weekend event with activities to suit your needs, no matter what sort of getaway you choose to have.

And by “all-inclusive,” we mean from check-in to check-out, all you need to do is enjoy yourself. Welcome the warmer weather by having an adventure that includes ziplining, canoeing, archery, climbing, and guided hikes (check out High Falls, Frost Valley’s stunning waterfall, or challenge yourself with a half-day hike to scenic Giant’s Ledge.)

If you just need a little me-time, Frost Valley can help you slow down. Nourish your spirit, mind, and body with stretch and meditation classes, natural facials, crafts, and stargazing at a mountaintop observatory. Or, just breathe in the clean mountain air during a stroll around glistening Lake Cole.

Programs for kids abound, too, and young ones will love Frost Valley’s arts and crafts room, outdoor activities, and the annual Family Field Day, a fun-filled program that’s become such a family favorite that it’s known as the “signature event” for Memorial Day Weekend.

Frost Valley accommodations range from cozy cabins and earthy Mongolian yurts, to the hotel-style Lakeview Lodge, and even include a historic mansion, known as Forstmann Castle. Hearty and healthy meals are served daily in their spacious, modern-rustic dining hall, with options to satisfy dietary restrictions including gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. (And their delicious Fair Trade-certified coffee flows all day.)
