Throughout the year the Y offers Group Trips to explore the best the Pacific Northwest has to offer. The trips are another way to bring people together to build friendships and lasting memories. 

Each Y Group Trip starts with a social gathering at the Y, followed by a bus ride to the destination, lunch, and a memorable event. 

 

SUMMERTIME AOA POTLUCK

Join us SATURDAY JULY 13th for our SEVENTH ANNUAL SKAGIT VALLEY FAMILY YMCA ACTIVE OLDER ADULT & MEMBERSHIP SUMMERTIME AOA POTLUCK.

Join the fun as we all get together to share food, stories, laughter, and of course MUSIC, provided by the AURORA JAZZ SEXTET. If you attended the Holiday Potluck you’ll remember this JAZZ ENSEMBLE: consisting of a rhythm section (bass, piano, drums) and trombone, tenor & alto saxophone. They play a variety of styles ranging from the hard swing of Count Basie to the fast, toe-tapping melodies of Charlie Parker, and even the cool funk of Herbie Hancock. Please join us in this celebration of friendship, great food, amazing music, laughter, prizes and wonderful company!
IT’S SUMMERTIME AND THE LIVING IS EASY WITH THE YMCA AOA!

AOA DIABLO LAKE ADVENTURE

DIABLO LAKE TOUR + NORTH CASCADES INSTITUTE - THURSDAY JULY 18TH

Since the 1920’s, visitors have traveled to Upper Skagit River to surround themselves with the rugged beauty of the North Cascades. In 1918 Seattle City Light began construction of three monumental dams over a 50 year time span to provide hydroelectric power to the city of Seattle. Join us on a tour of the lake created by the construction of Diablo Dam; We’ll begin our adventure by traveling up the North Cascade Highway deep into the heart of the National Park Complex for a two hour guided tour of Diablo Reservoir aboard the Alice Ross III. Floating across the turquoise waters taking in the views of the surrounding peaks—Ruby & Pyramid Peaks & Sourdough Mountain—travel up the gorge to the foot of Ross Dam & tour the pumphouse. We disembark for a hearty lunch at the North Cascades Institute Environmental Learning Center—an award winning campus of buildings on the shore of the lake. We’ll make a brief stop at Cascadia Farms for Ice Cream before we return to the YMCA. Please join us on the quintessential Northwest Adventure!

REGISTRATION BEGINS WEDNESDAY MAY 22nd!
