Frost Valley YMCA is dedicated to service and the idea that to live a meaningful and healthy life one should give back to their community. The service trips at Frost Valley YMCA are focused on making an impact on the community while also teaching the importance of service to our youth. Currently, we offer two service oriented trips the Ulster County Habitat for Humanity and Friends of Acadia, Maine. Campers who participate in our service trips will receive a signed letter validating at least 35 hours of accredited service per trip.
