Rocky Mountain High

Rocky Mountain High Update:

We will not be making any decisions on Rocky 2020 before May 15, 2020. A lot can and will happen before July 25, 2020. We will be in prayer and act wisely as we walk through the next couple of months.

At this time, the Y camp at Estes Park has closed to avoid any illnesses being brought in or spread in their facilities. They are closed through April 6 and will re-assess as the time draws nearer. This will assure that the camp will be free of contamination when they reopen once this crisis subsides.

Concerning registration fees: If, in the unfortunate circumstance, we do need to cancel Rocky 2020, we will return the registration fees minus the contract deposits and contract obligations we have agreed to at this point. Some of these include: Y camp deposit, talent contracts, rental deposits such as bleachers, inflatables, and recreation deposits.

Our prayer is that once we have endured the next three weeks, God will grant us some peace of mind and life will go on! He is in control!! We will come through this stronger with God’s leading.

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.
