So Much To See & Do

Silver Bay has something for everyone! If you prefer water activities, then you’ll love swimming and paddling on beautiful Lake George. When you’re done at the beach or Boathouse, try your aim at archery or hike one of our groomed trails and see Lake George from a different perspective! No matter your age – there’s sure to be something you’ll love.

As a YMCA, we believe in healthy living, which is fun to do at Silver Bay! Make Silver Bay your playground for the day, night, or week. Hike to Inspiration Point, canoe with your friends, take part in the clout shoot, or get competitive on the new micro-disc golf course. Silver Bay is where healthy living meets fun!
