Just add water. Enjoy a summer staycation at the Lake Norman YMCA.

Located on Lake Cornelius, the Lake Norman YMCA is one of a few YMCAs in the country located directly on a waterfront. This allows us to offer an experience like few other YMCAs. Not only does the lake offer one of the best summer camp experiences around, but all members have access to the waterfront every Saturday and Sunday during the summer.

Members can checkout canoes, kayaks and paddleboards or just hang out on the beach while their children swim and have a ball on the giant inflatable slide. Our floating trampoline and banana boat rides are available during our monthly family events posted on the events calendar and can be rented by requested. 

Other special programs include sailing lessons, open water swims and paddleboard classes.
