Renew, refresh & inspire

Silver Bay YMCA is a conference and family retreat center located in the Adirondack State Park on the beautiful shores of Lake George in New York. Since 1902, we have excelled in providing programs and services that help all people to feel renewed, refreshed, and inspired. Everything you see on campus today was formed over the past 117 years by our caring staff, amazing guests and generous benefactors. It is their dedication, their hopes and dreams for this location and all their hard work that has shaped the Silver Bay of today.

See why guests keep coming back year after year!
