ABOUT SILVER BAY COUNCIL

Silver Bay YMCA Council is an auxiliary organization of Silver Bay YMCA Conference & Family Retreat Center. Its members are dedicated to restoring, enhancing, and preserving the Silver Bay campus while embodying the Silver Bay Spirit.

Silver Bay Council supports the needs of Silver Bay and its Board of Directors. Members find avenues for volunteering throughout the year, participate in fundraising activities to help meet organizational needs, and advise and provide input where and when needed to ensure that Silver Bay remains a vibrant retreat for all.

Silver Bay Council also hosts “Tidy Time” work weekends, a tradition that started in the late ’60s. Every spring and fall, members of the Silver Bay Council and Silver Bay staff get together to help “tidy up” and make improvements around campus. Families and individuals who are not on Council are more than welcome to participate and enjoy the fun, as well as the special weekend rate. A minimum of four (4) hours per day of work is required. Projects are split into four categories: Special Projects, Gardening, Trails, and Special Duty.
