Frost Valley YMCA's Women's Wellness WeekendThree days of relaxation, connection, and wellness in the Catskills!

Claryville, N.Y. — Frost Valley YMCA invites women to the beautiful Catskill Mountains from March 27-29, 2020 to rejuvenate their spirit, mind, and body. Women will gather from near and far to connect with old friends, make new ones, and enjoy a host of classes designed just for women to be mentally, physically, and spiritually rewarding. New classes and activities, including a wine tasting and education course presented by Bet The Farm Winery, will infuse excitement and energy into this time-honored weekend in addition to its popular wellness classes taught by beloved returning presenters. 

This weekend away in the scenic Catskill Mountains is offered for women who want to treat themselves to better overall wellness. Guests can relax their minds and bodies with massage and yoga. Classes like pottery, watercolor painting, creative writing, and glass etching will ignite the artist within, allowing guests to express themselves in new ways. They will also participate in invigorating dance classes, take nature hikes to scenic visitas, or soar down the zipline.

“It is a gift to see the scenery that surrounds this beautiful setting. But what makes Frost Valley YMCA truly unique is the people who invite you into their lives by giving you a sense of family and a genuine interest in making your stay enjoyable. The greetings from the staff are always accompanied by a smile; their (how can I help you) questions are always from the heart; and the workshops at the Women’s Wellness Weekend are always filled with learning and a refreshing perspective,” said Gracanne Ryan, a former Women’s Wellness Weekend participant.

During this all-inclusive getaway, delicious and nutritious wellness cuisine is prepared to accommodate a wide range of nutritional needs and restrictions. A variety of lodging is available from hotel-style lakefront accommodations to rustic cabins, to lodges perfect for large groups. Lodging options are subject to availability.  

Anyone interested in attending this retreat is encouraged to contact Frost Valley as soon as possible since spaces fill up quickly. For more information go to or call 845-985-2291 ext. 450 to make reservations.
