Spend the weekend with hundreds of friends from the Diocese of Albany at Silver Bay, the beautiful YMCA Conference and Family Retreat Center on gorgeous Lake George. In addition to the official business of the diocese, enjoy workshops, worship, fellowship, music, recreation, entertainment, exhibits and more! Programming and fun for people of all ages!

The Convention weekend will offer workshops about becoming a more Joyful Lector, informational workshops on the Daughters of the King, several mission projects going on around the diocese and how your church can see mission in operation, both locally and globally; along with workshops on developing spirituality, and having or beginning discussions in your congregation on developing more awareness of race and racism and the legacy of slavery.

Since self-care is an integral part of healing, wholeness and wellness, there are several outdoor activities for your self-care on the Silver Bay complex. Equipment for shuffleboard, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis and more. Hiking trails and Disc Golf are available daily. The Silver Bay Boathouse and the Archery field are available on Saturday morning and afternoon. An outdoor labyrinth is also available. Feel free to take advantage of the beautiful Adirondack scenery for exercise and meditation!

In addition we have a youth rally for the teens and VBS for school aged children. This truly is an event for the whole family!
