YMCA Trout Lodge is the perfect destination for adults. Complete with pre-scheduled activities*, lodging, meals, free time, off-site adventures and more, adults have many opportunities to enjoy fun, recreational, educational and creative programs. We offer a variety of programs and wide array of activities designed for adults of all activity levels from easy to very active.

Rates include lodging, meals and all scheduled activities*. (*Only a few of the programs we offer do have the opportunity for additional activities outside of the all-inclusive price, but are optional and in no way will minimize the quality of your amazing experience. You’ll be advised in advance in these few situations).

Check out the Trout Lodge Adult Programs (now on hiatus), Road Scholar Programs (now on hiatus) and Women’s Programs sections for more information about our many options to get out and play. Be adventurous in mind, body and spirit as you delight in being far away from the ordinary.

Take the time to laugh, play, have fun and even learn something new. Trout Lodge has educational, inspirational and motivational programs designed specifically for women. For those of you who do so much for everyone else, take this opportunity to do something for yourself. Relax and explore with our women’s programs. RATES INCLUDE LODGING, MEALS AND SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES!


Women’s Wellness Weekend (early Spring)

This event is extremely popular with the ladies, who come to Trout Lodge for classes, adventure, amazingly fun group activities, bonding and so much more. We also have vendors (yes, shopping!!) who spend the weekend during the Women’s Wellness, including jewelry, candles, soaps, self-defense, scents and so much more. During this all-inclusive weekend, women take over the Lodge and have so much fun just being themselves! And we have the pictures to prove it! 

Outdoor Women’s Wellness Weekend (in Fall)

This program is a perfect time for women to get away, spend time together laughing, learning and having fun just before all of the hoopla of the holidays begin. Spend time in the great outdoors doing a high adventure activity such as our climbing tower and zip line, relax with yoga, head over to our Arts & Crafts center and make a ceramic or jewelry (and more), learn how to do Dutch oven cooking, paintball, riflery, hiking and so much more. 


Scrapbooking Weekend

This weekend is for those who want to spend time away from the hustle and bustle enjoying time letting their creative side flow in a peaceful and serene environment. Finish a started project or begin something new, and even gain ideas from other enthusiasts.
