Frost Valley YMCA

There are many ways to say “Thank you, Mom” on Mother’s Day, but only a few will become memories she’ll never forget. Flowers wilt, cards get lost, and chocolates are lucky if they last until Monday. So this year, why not give mom a truly unforgettable experience?

Make her smile with an entire weekend to do whatever her heart desires – this year, give her a chance to get away from it all. Take her to an all-inclusive, low-cost family camp and retreat center, such as Frost Valley YMCA, located in the beautiful Catskills.

Why Frost Valley? Because Mom stays FREE from May 8-10 when she comes with a full paying guest for this all-inclusive, low-cost weekend. Whether she’s always up for an adventure, in need of a quiet weekend, or likes a little bit of everything, there’s something for everyone at Frost Valley. Here are five ways to make this Mother’s Day one that’s filled with new traditions and lasting memories.


Discover Nature’s Beauty

If mom’s a nature girl at heart, she’ll love being surrounded by the splendor of the Catskill Mountains in the springtime. She’ll take in the sights of tall evergreens, colorful wildflowers, wooded trails, shimmering lakes, and more — all within Frost Valley’s 5,500 acres. Frost Valley even has its own waterfall, High Falls, which is a stunning visual treat along a guided forest hike.

Enjoy a Spa-like Experience

Breathe in; breathe out. Moms who would love a peaceful getaway can find their inner calm during a meditation or stretch class in Frost Valley’s new studio. She can enjoy a refreshing, natural facial and sip tea in her room at the Forstmann Castle or the hotel-inspired Lakeview Lodge, just two of many lodging options. Talk about queen for a day!


Get Crafty

Whether she’s a DIY fanatic or wants to try a new a craft, Mom will enjoy Frost Valley’s various arts and crafts programs. Candlemaking, recycled crafts, painting, and more are all within reach — and in a setting this inspiring, the creativity will be flowing.


Try a New Adventure

Some moms are thrill-seekers, and Frost Valley has something just for them, too. She can feel the wind in her hair as she soars down a zipline, tests her strength during rock climbing, feels her heart race as she crosses a cable bridge, or gets in touch with her inner warrior at Frost Valley’s archery range, among other exciting activities. You’re certainly welcome to try, too – but don’t be surprised if Mom outdoes you!


Celebrate as a Family

Of course, mom is welcome to treat the weekend as a solo getaway, but she can bring the whole crew along if she prefers — there’s something for everyone to enjoy (including a card-making station for those last-minute gifters). Enjoy five freshly prepared meals in the dining hall, which caters to a variety of dietary needs including gluten-free and vegetarian.
