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 relationships, strengthen communities and nurture spirit, mind and body for all.

Our IMPACT

Because of Silver Bay YMCA, connections between people and family are stronger. People are more connected, respectful and caring. They have the confidence to develop to their full potential and to positively impact the communities in which they work and live. As a result, communities are more dynamic, inclusive and diverse. As stewards of Lake George, we inspire people to be stewards of the environment while they are visiting our magnificent campus and in their home communities.

DIG Statement

At Silver Bay, equity and inclusion are central to our mission and our impact. Welcoming people of diverse backgrounds, identities, and perspectives enriches our community, provides a safe space for bonds to grow, and inspires people to develop their potential. As our mission states, to foster relationships, strengthen communities and nurture spirit, mind and body for all. Silver Bay is a unique and special place that inspires us all to positively impact the communities where we live.

The Board of Trustees is committed to upholding and living by the values of our mission. This includes developing strategies and initiatives to foster an inclusive environment at Silver Bay that actively welcomes and engages people with diverse backgrounds, identities, and perspectives. Commitment to these principles must become woven into everything we do. Therefore, the Board commits to continually evaluating and improving upon the ways that we incorporate these values into our work. We invite all members of the Silver Bay community to join us in living out our mission, thereby ensuring that diversity, equity and inclusion remain as core values of Silver Bay.
