Join the Outdoor Sporting Program

The Frost Valley YMCA Outdoor Sporting Program provides nature enthusiasts access to 5,500 acres of forest, fields, lakeshore, riverbeds, and trails in which to experience the freedom of the outdoors. With enrollment, one can hike, camp, fish, hunt, and experience the wonders of Frost Valley in the heart of the “forever wild” Catskill Park. Dedicated to fostering the stewardship of the earth and our natural resources (water, wildlife, forest, and soil), this program invites participants to join us in enjoying and protecting the land in our care.
