YMCA Trout Lodge is the perfect family vacation destination with a huge 360-acre lake, all-inclusive rates and countless activities for all four seasons. Lodging fees also include three buffet-style meals per day and many activities (some carry an additional charge).
Spring Break themed weekends bring in the renewal that is spring while summer is about water activities and frolicking in the sun with sailboats, Zorb balls, banana boats, canoes, funyaks, lake swing and slide, water trampoline, pontoon tours and so much more. Fall ushers in the autumn splendor (talk about fall colors with an artist's palette of 5,200 wooded acres as your vacation backdrop) and with it the themes that are so popular — the Great Pumpkin Jamboree, the hugely anticipated Halloween weekend and Thanksgiving (with a turkey on every table and no clean up required!). Not to be outdone, winter carries in the holiday season, including Pioneer Christmas which brings back a village from the past complete with caroling, popcorn garlands, ornament-making, story-telling, blacksmithing, Dutch oven cooking and many other activities from "days gone by." Finally, the Trout Lodge's New Year's celebration tops off the year with its "ringing in the new year" festivities. These are just a few of the many themes held throughout the year.
There is so much to do at Trout Lodge, the only hard thing is deciding what to do first: traversing the paintball course, learning how to make balloon animals, creating a Trout Lodge masterpiece with dart art, taking a geology hike, bird watching, hat-shaping with the Triangle Y Ranch wranglers, or archery, tower climbs, zip lines, mini-golf, horseback/pony rides and hayrides, arts and crafts, riflery, pontoon rides, water activities, dozens of other awesome activities — and of course, the themed weeks and weekends. There is something for everyone at Trout Lodge! (Some activities are seasonal).
Trout Lodge is also home to family reunions (from a few to a few hundred or more), corporate retreats, team building, adult programs, women's programs and more.
