Upcoming Events

Join us for the inaugural Y Mess Fest!

At Y Mess Fest, we don’t want you to clean up your mess—we want you to make one! Our 2-mile obstacle course is packed with fun activities where you’ll walk or run through all kinds of nature-made and human-made messes like dirt, mud, goop, shaving cream, and even biodegradable glitter. Not only will you have a blast strengthening your body and clearing your mind, you’ll also be making collaborative art with your fellow racers as you have a blast getting gross and grimy. Join us at Camp DayCroix in Hudson, WI for this one-of-a-kind mess-a-palooza to shake off the winter blues.
