The best way to travel?
You are invited to join the YMCA Alumni Travel Club in 2021, 2022 and 2023 adventures. The Travel Club is designed to provide members, their families and friends, the opportunity to enjoy group travel experiences at a reasonable cost, adding value and extended benefits to your YMCA Alumni membership.
Travel Club experiences are generally hosted by YMCA Alumni members, experienced travelers, who have worked hand-in-hand with Go Travel, our professional consultants, to choose and refine their tour. Our programs are conducted by respected international tour and cruise companies or by carefully chosen local organizations.
All of our trips are guaranteed to depart regardless of the number of members and guests who register (except during times like we are currently experiencing with the pandemic).
Visit these pages often to learn about planned trips as they are announced. Watch for news in Going Places, our Travel Club newsletter, The Connection, our YMCA Alumni national newsletter, on our Facebook page and in your chapter newsletter.
Don't delay. Register as early as possible to obtain the best rates and to be sure you have space reserved before the trip sells out.
Welcome and Bon Voyage
It was the year time stood still...
"After months of canceled and delayed travel plans, a new year heralded by positive vaccine news has travelers eager to plan and book trips for 2021 and beyond.
It was the year that time stood still, when we put all our plans on hold. With 2020 (finally) behind us and an end to the pandemic seeming plausible now that vaccine inoculations have begun, many travelers can wait no more. The time to start planning and booking some trips has come." --Afar Travel Magazine
Objective: To provide YMCA Alumni members the opportunity to have travel experiences with past YMCA colleagues, families and friends at a reasonable cost. The Travel Club is managed by a committee authorized by the YMCA Alumni Board.
