We Are Open for Pre-Booked Activities from the 4th July

YMCA Lakeside Open from the 4th July 2020.

Our priorities are the health and safety and general well-being of our many visitors and loyal staff team. This has not changed since the launch of our centre some seventy years ago.

Following recent Government announcements regarding the types of businesses that may now re-open, we are slowly offering some accommodation offers and activities – with caution.

We will be following advice regarding social distancing and are opening safely with Covid-19 safety procedures in place. YMCA Lakeside will open to the public from the 4th July- for PRE-BOOKED ACTIVITIES ONLY. These will include accommodation only bookings, camping, Summer Day Camps, Canoe & kayak hire.

Numbers of guests and participants will of course be strictly controlled. Some activities will have very limited participants.

We will have extra measures in place including signage. All rooms, equipment and buildings will be sanitised between use. We will ask you to use the hand sanitiser provided and keep a distance of at least 1+ metre between you and other guests.

For details of the limited accommodation and activities on offer please go to the red “Book Here” tab on the top left of the homepage. We respectfully ask you not to turn up on the day without pre-booking as our limited team will not be able to manage additional guests.

We are excited at the prospect of re-opening – even in this limited fashion.

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

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 entire reopening of YMCA Lakeside and welcoming our next million guests. We believe that offering even limited opportunities for exploring the great ideas will provide us with an income we, as a charity, desperately need in order that we can protect our long term survival.

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.


With best regards

The Lakeside Team
