Silver Bay offers free relaxation space for clergy and their families

Silver Bay YMCA is a beautiful 700-acre waterfront family retreat and conference center on the shores of Lake George where pastors and their families are invited to stay for free during most of the year.

The Brookside/Trinity Ministry at Silver Bay takes facilities that are used for conferences in the summer months and opens them to pastors and their families for respite and relaxation from immediately after Labor Day to mid-June free of charge. Lodging, services, and meals are included, also.

This ministry at Silver Bay also provides space for rest and renewal to lay persons involved in ministries, single parents in time of transition, and those in need of short-term emergency housing.

For more information about clergy staying at Silver Bay, see the attached brochure or contact Rev. Keith Tamlyn at New Hackensack Reformed Church, Wappingers Falls, NY.

Silver Bay also offers retreat facilities for retreats, space for family reunions, family vacations, weddings, and more. Check out their website at www.silverbay.org.
