Site Highlights

Surrounded by the Adirondack Mountains and Lake George, Silver Bay offers groups miles of hiking trails which reveal beautiful vistas.

Day hikes take students to Sunrise Mountain, Jabes Pond, Inspiration Point, and the Uncas Cliffs. These hikes lead to caves, streams, waterfalls, and fascinating glacial erratic boulders. 

After climbing to the summit of Inspiration Point, groups spend time taking in the beauty of the surrounding mountains and Lake George. This is a great opportunity for students to discuss the importance of this body of water during the Revolutionary War, while reflecting on how its use has evolved over time.

Housing and Facilities

With many options for housing, our Silver Bay facilities can accommodate groups of all sizes, up to 300. Most groups stay in the Bayview or Spangler buildings. These buildings have dormitory-style rooms, each with two beds, and either shared or private bathrooms.

Our recreational facilities include a large gymnasium, shuffle board courts, and playing fields.
