Join Us This Summer

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 throughout past 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!

Our MISSION

To foster a lifelong sense of belonging, strengthen relationships, and nurture spirit, mind, and body for all.

Our IMPACT

Because of Silver Bay YMCA, personal and family bonds are stronger. People are more connected, respectful, and caring; have the confidence to develop to their fullest potential; and impact the communities in which they live. Inspired by the beauty of the landscape at Silver Bay, they become better stewards of the environment. 

DIG Statement

2020 has proven to be a turbulent time in many ways. A heightened awareness of inequities across a broad spectrum of communities has compelled us to re-evaluate our perspective and viewpoint on these issues. This is true both individually and collectively.  Through this re-evaluation process, the Silver Bay Board of Trustees has embraced the opportunity for Silver Bay to evolve, to become a stronger organization, and to focus on our stated mission, which is, “To foster a lifelong sense of belonging, strengthen relationships, and nurture spirit, mind, and body for all.”

As part of this process, the Trustees of Silver Bay have taken steps to listen and learn, engaging in a series of discussions and training sessions facilitated by the Y-USA relating to diversity and inclusion. We also had the opportunity to participate in a Virtual Town Hall, hosted by the YMCA African American CEOs, on Unlearning Systemic Racism.

As a board, we are committed to upholding and living by the values of our mission, with a specific focus on diversity and inclusion.  With this in mind, the board has established a Diversity, Inclusion, and Global Engagement Task Force to oversee our continuing efforts in this area. This task force has a stated goal of identifying clear next actions, both for the immediate future and in the long-term. We invite all members of the Silver Bay community to join us in living out our mission, thereby ensuring that diversity and inclusion remain as core values of Silver Bay.
