Impacting Lives for a Lifetime.

YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly is a retreat and conference destination located just outside of Asheville, North Carolina in the Black Mountains. For over a century, we have welcomed groups and families to come together and build relationships, learn from speakers, discover the beauty of our natural setting, enjoy healthy outdoor activities, and grow spiritually and mentally. In serving your group, we strive to adhere to both the values of the Y and the principles on which we were founded – respecting all those who come here, working diligently to provide for your needs, and serving you with integrity and kindness.

We want your group to join our community and learn what an inviting, majestic place Blue Ridge really is. We serve all – large conferences and small gatherings – youth camps, school trips, church retreats, family reunions, YMCA trainings, teambuilding retreats, and much more!

If Blue Ridge is a familiar place, we invite you to look at changes we’ve made and our plans for the future. If you’ve never been here before, we hope to provide enough information to show you our commitment to determining if our community is the right fit for you. So, settle in and get to know us – we hope you enjoy what you see!
