We Are Now Closed

YMCA Lakeside is Now Unfortunately Closed.

Our priorities are the health and safety and general wellbeing of our many visitors and loyal staff team. This has not changed since the launch of our centre some seventy years ago. Over this time, we have welcomed over a million guests – many of them young people from deprived backgrounds. Those most in need have reaped the benefits of a life enhancing experience in the great outdoors.

Whilst enjoyment of our abundant natural resources is important more than ever in challenging and changing times, we are following the advice of Public Health England, The World Health Organisation and Government Guidance regarding coronavirus (Covid-19.)

In the interests of following advice regarding social distancing, YMCA Lakeside will close to the public with immediate effect.

This is an announcement we make with a heavy heart and we welcome the messages of support already coming in from so many of our repeat visitors, supporters, alumni and general friends of YMCA Lakeside.

We do not at this time have a re-openingdate,but the situation will be under constant review.

We urge anyone with specific concerns and questions to contact us by email at the following address lakesideenq@fyldecoastymca.org

We understand that these are uncertain times and that for some groups it may be preferable to move your booking to a future date. Should this be the best possible solution for you and your group then we will reschedule your booking. In this instance your booking deposit will move forward to the future date.

We will continue to update customers on a regular basis with important information as we receive it. We will continue to communicate with you by email but please do regularly check our website.

This is a temporary closure. We are committed to continuing in the good work that we do and in the YMCA ethos of making a transformative impact on young lives.

We very much look forward to announcing the reopening of YMCA Lakeside and welcoming our next million guests.

You can continue to support us by making future bookings and by helping to create a YMCA experience for a young person in need by sponsoring a bed.


Together we can get through this.
