TREK Gap Program -- August 13, 2018 - May 7, 2019


Posted by: YMCA of the Rockies

Posted date: 2018-Jan-29

Location: Granby

What is TREK?

TREK is a working Christian gap year program designed for 18 to 24 year olds seeking personal and spiritual growth while working in a seasonal job at Snow Mountain Ranch. The 2018-2019 TREK program at Snow Mountain Ranch will start August 13, 2018, and runs through May 7, 2019. During this 8 eight-month period participants will work full time at Snow Mountain Ranch—and earn pay, all meals, and lodging, while attending workshops, leading active lives, making friends from around the globe, and participating in group activities. Participants will experience faith development, character development, and greater self-awareness and understanding.

 

How Does It Work?

Participants will come together in small group meetings that encourage accountably, safe relationships, thoughtful reflection, honest conversation, and prayer, generally once per week. In addition, participants will meet weekly as a large group, guided by the chaplains. Participants are expected to study and reflect on the content of the material, and the Bible. Spiritual disciplines will also be learned and practiced. Retreats and special activities will also be part of their eight-month experience.

What Distinguishes the YMCA of the Rockies TREK program From Other Christian Gap Year Programs?

1) The Cost. Not only is the application fee ($50) lower than most, you actually have the opportunity to earn the fees back, and put money away in savings, because during your eight-month program you will be working 40 hours per week at Snow Mountain Ranch in a variety of secular jobs. As a result of your work you will receive room, board, and an hourly wage plus employee perks—like free skiing/snowboarding at many Colorado resorts. The program cost for the 2018-2019 program is $1200 (+$50 application fee).

2) The location. TREK program participants work at Snow Mountain Ranch, (SMR), our family retreat and conference center, located at 9,000 feet above sea level on 5,000 acres surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains. SMR is situated between the towns of Winter Park (20 min) and Grand Lake (30 minutes), which is the western entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.

The weather is usually sunny, as we’re located on a high, wide plain of rolling hills looking at the Continental Divide. In winter, it can be cold and windy, so bring warm layers as you’ll walk a bit from building to building.

3) The perks.

Participants are provided with on-site accomodations and all meals. The accomodations are staff dormitories, which you will share with 1-3 roommates. There is a private restroom (toilet & sink) in each room, with communal shower on each floor. Furniture and linens are provided, however you are welcome to bring your favorite blanket, pillow etc. from home. Each floor also has a common area with a TV, games and space to lounge.

Employees have access to all of our amenities on property, including: indoor pool, basketball gymnasium, indoor & outdoor rock climbing wall, horseback riding, library, craft shop, and over 100km of amazing trails for hiking, snowshoeing, skiing and mountain biking. For downhill ski enthusiasts, we run a daily shuttle to Winter Park Ski Resort once it opens for the season. SMR is also the home of a Sled Dog team—which our TREK staff help manage and mush!

Other employee perks and discounts, including:

  • Free Grand Passes for skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and golf (dependent on season and resort – limited number available, first come first served basis)
  • Free gear rentals for sports and outdoor activities
  • Employee programming, including free or discounted staff trips, provided by the Human Resources Office
  • Discounted nights at YMCA of the Rockies lodges (with some date restrictions based on season/occupancy)

What Can Participants Expect to Gain?

The development of a Biblical foundation for life and leadership, the development of a personal foundation for life, the development of a relational foundation for life, and the development of a practical foundation for life. You’ll develop a roadmap for your future, based on the values that guide you and skills you’ll enhance during your program. Participants will also have gainful employment for eight months, lifelong friendships with people from around the world, and mountain recreation.

COMPENSATION:

This is a seasonal, hourly (based on 40 hours/week) position, paying $220/week, with employee perks including:

  • Room (shared room in our staff dormitory with free wifi and no bills!)
  • Board (3 buffet-style meals per day, 7 days per week)
