Wet Willie water slide at YMCA Camp Silver Beach

CSB: Dream Destination on Virginia's Eastern Shore
It may look like just plain fun, but there's a lot more going on at Camp Silver Beach. With loads of activities packed on 151 beautiful acres of forest, field and wetlands, and 1,200 feet of pristine Chesapeake Bay beachfront, we provide opportunities for campers to build confidence, learn sportsmanship, find potential, grow friendships and develop a healthy independence from family. Lessons about respect and honesty come packaged in water adventures, woodland walks, and campfire sing-a-longs. We maintain a 4-to-1 camper-to-staff ratio with counselors who are highly trained, positive, and enthusiastic role models.

While we don't spend much time inside, we're very proud of our facilities. Our covered outdoor pavilion, outdoor amphitheater, and lodges are perfect for skits, games and talent shows. Our dining hall boasts a panoramic view of the Chesapeake Bay with magnificent sunsets and is a great place for good conversations. Our 44 air-conditioned cottages accommodate 400 campers and staff. Each cottage has a minimum of two staff members, trained in First Aid and CPR. Additionally, our camp health care facility has 24-hour coverage by a licensed or certified health care professional. Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital, a full-service health facility is less than 12 miles from camp, and stands ready for emergencies.

The best thing about Camp Silver Beach is the friendships. Everyone at Camp Silver Beach is taught to care for and respect each other. Enduring friendships, formed in this unique setting, are what bring campers and counselors back year after year.
