taylor jordan camp directorHey Y’all!

Welcome to YMCA Camp Santa Maria! I’m Taylor, camp director. This will be my fourth summer with YMCA Camp Santa Maria. I hail from Chattanooga, TN, where I grew up and graduated from the University of Tennessee – Chattanooga with a B.S. in outdoor recreation with a focus on outdoor leadership. I would consider myself a Y-lifer. I began working at YMCA day camp straight out of high school and have spent every summer since working for the Y at a variety of residential and day camps, with the exception of one summer spent as a bike mechanic, instructor and trip leader. I discovered my love for camp and desire to be a part of the camp world at a young age, and I can’t wait to share that experience and knowledge with campers and staff.

In my free time, I love to hike with my dog, mountain bike, rock climb and read. I strive to spend as much time as possible outside to feel more connected to the natural world around us.

Looking forward to another great summer at Camp Santa Maria!

My question/comment is in regards to:

Care packages and letters are welcome and a good way to make your campers feel loved while they are away from home. However, because we do not want to attract animals to cabin areas, food items are discouraged. In order for campers to get the most from the camp experience, we ask that letters stay positive and upbeat and avoid topics that cause campers stress or anxiety. Mailing a letter or package before the start of your camper’s session will ensure they receive it while are at camp.

You can also drop off letters at check in, with a note specifiying which days you want the letters delivered to your camper. Other options include the following:

Regular U.S. Mail

Directions from Denver/Boulder: Take CO-285 off of 470 E heading towards Fairplay. When exiting 470 E, please obey the speed limit signs. There is a small turn-off just after the exit and it is a common place for the police to set a speed trap.

Follow CO-285 to Bailey, which should take about 40 minutes. Be aware that the SPEED LIMIT through Bailey is 40 mph. Camp is about 10 miles west of Bailey. You will see a small green road sign for Santa Maria shortly before you get to the camp entrance. The entrance is on the right-hand side of the road.

When you come down the driveway, please park to the left of the office building and then check in at the main office.
