Weekend Retreats

We offer a variety of housing and meeting accommodations to best serve the needs of your group. With more than 300 beds covering over 400 acres and meeting rooms for groups of all sizes, we are sure to have the facilities to accommodate you during our non-summer camp season.
 
YMCA Camp Hanes is happy to work with any church, civic, corporate, educational, or non-profit group whose event falls within the bounds of the YMCA mission of “Helping all people reach their God given potential in spirit, mind and body.” Please contact Jared Causby at j.causby@ymcanwnc.org or 336 983 3131 for details.

We offer 22 Cabins that sleep 14/16 people each in comfortable bunk beds with full restroom facilities in each sleeping quarter. 
 
Our Alphin Retreat Center sleeps 16 adults within four rooms that fit four people per bedroom. The configuration has two rooms on each side of the building that share a joining bathroom space. There is a communal living/meeting room space with a fridge and kitchenette, plus a separate half bathroom. There is a deck attached, facing the lake, with chairs for meeting or bonding around an electric fire pit. Our Alphin Retreat Center is the perfect space for a small group that wants an intimate environment.
 
The Downstairs Dining Hall offers two rooms that sleep 20 people (on bunks) per room with full restroom facilities for each room. There is an adjoining meeting space in the middle and the dining hall is steps away.

Meeting

The Reynolds Conference Center is capable of seating up to 300 people in the auditorium, or 150 people with tables. It has an excellent audio visual and sound system, large screen and LCD projector. It has a small kitchenette, break out room, and amazing views of our lake and mountain. 

The Baker Center Conference Room is capable of seating up to 300 people auditorium-style, or over 100 people seated at tables. The Conference Room is also divisible to give you two smaller meeting spaces if you would prefer to have one side around tables and one side auditorium style. The gymnasium and outdoor recreation space are right outside your meeting space for break time activities.
 
The Nature Room, Small Dining Hall, or the Rec Hall can be used as meeting or breakout spaces for groups. Gather around the original fireplaces from our Canteen for a fireside chat.
 
We offer a full range of audio visual equipment for your event, let us know your needs and we can help prepare your meeting room to meet your needs.
