Going Places

What's the best way to travel?

With friends.

Official YMCA Alumni Travel Club Information Center

The YMCA Alumni Travel Club invites you to join us on 2020 and 2021 adventures. The Travel Club is designed to provide members, their families and friends, the opportunity to enjoy travel experiences with past YMCA colleagues and friends at a reasonable cost, adding  value and extended benefits to your YMCA Alumni membership. Your Travel Club Committee, chaired by Patrick Murphy of the Schreiner Chapter, includes regional representatives and professional group travel planners. ​

Each Travel Club experience is hosted by YMCA Alumni members, experienced travelers, who have worked hand-in-hand with Go Travel to choose and refine their tour. They will be available to you before you leave and throughout your trip to provide help and advice. Tours are conducted by respected international tour and cruise companies or by local organizations.

Visit these pages often to learn about planned trips as they are announced. Watch for news in The Connection, our YMCA Alumni 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 before the trip sells out. It's always wise to purchase Trip Insurance when you register. Two 2020 trips are sold out as of December and taking waiting list only. Register for trips NOW.

Bon Voyage

Why book now when travel is uncertain during the coronavirus outbreak? Travel experts are certain that the pent-up demand for travel will result in sold out tours and cruises for 2021. GoTravel, our YMCA Alumni travel consultants, are monitoring all of our trips carefully for changing conditions, refund policies and incredible offers. You can book with confidence if you act now and don't wait.

About Us:

The YMCA Travel Club is managed by a committee authorized by the YMCA Board. All YMCA Alumni members are automatically members of the Travel Club and their families and friends may participate in any and all trips. Help us plan for future trips.
