2021 Theme: You Are, I Am

It is one thing to be told who you are, and it is another to know who you are! There are voices constantly telling you who you are and how you fit into this world. It is on you to decipher what is true and what is misleading, and that is a heavy responsibility to handle on your own!

The main sessions of Rocky ‘21 will walk you through the life of Paul and show that Paul was following what he understood as his call or lot in life. However, when he was confronted by truth, he began to see a new way and new direction for his life. Acts 9 shows the process of Paul’s conversion and how he needed to take a new route in life, allow time for learning and trust to be built, and to walk alongside others on the same journey.

Promotional Materials TBD


Rocky Mountain High is an event held every three years. It is geared towards high school students (grades 9-12) and their adult leaders.

This event is held at the YMCA Camp of the Rockies in Estes Park, CO. It is nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, surrounded by nature and the sheer beauty of God.

Our goal is to provide a large group encounter with the transformational truth and love of Jesus for students and leaders.
