YMCA Conference & Retreat Center at Silver Beach

Owned and operated by the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, YMCA Conference & Retreat Center at Silver Beach is located on 1,200 feet of pristine beachfront on the Eastern Shore's Chesapeake Bay. Nestled in 151 acres of woods and wetlands, we are the ultimate location for your escape!

"Silver Beach is an awesome place! As a Church Family at Cheriton Baptist Church, look forward to going each year. Before we can even get out of the driveway leaving the camp, the kids are already asking to come back—I would highly recommend Silver Beach to anyone for a retreat!"

In Christian Love,
Becky V. Harris
Coordinator of Chyms @ CBC
(Children/Youth Ministries of Cheriton Baptist Church)
