YMCA Camp Silver Beach is located on the Chesapeake Bay on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, with 1200’ of pristine beachfront. Our 151 acres host a 55’ Alpine II Challenge Course /Climbing Tower/Giant Swing, environmental discovery program, swimming pools, sailing, kayaking, tennis courts, Wet Willie giant water slide, skate park, and optional ski school. Our well-trained summer staff is carefully selected from around the world to create a unique community here at camp. The counselors we hire are positive and enthusiastic role models and allow us to maintain a 4-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio. We also offer a Teen Adventure camp opportunity for rising freshmen, sophomores and juniors, as well as a Leadership Development program for rising juniors.
We believe that every child deserves a moment in the sun, a chance to learn, a special time to grow, and a special time to make friends and become a better person. Our many activities are the building blocks we use to accomplish greater things, shaping the best moments of childhood into unforgettable memories. Through the activities and guidance of our staff, campers build confidence, learn sportsmanship, find potential, grow friendships and develop a healthy independence from family. Lessons incorporating the five core values of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads – caring, honesty, respect, responsibility and faith – come packaged in water adventures, woodland walks and campfire sing-a-longs.
Camp Silver Beach strives to put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body while providing the camp experience of a lifetime. Nobody does it better than the YMCA and Camp Silver Beach.
