Thank you so much for you interest, we are so happy you are looking at Sandy Island for your Wedding Weekend! There is no better place to gather your family and friends to celebrate this event! A destination wedding on the lake will be filled with beautiful scenery, fun & adventure, as well as some logistical questions for you and your guests.
For nine weeks in the summer Sandy Island is a YMCA Family camp. Because of this, we are only able to accommodate wedding groups on weekends outside of our camp season. This will generally be May-June, and September after Labor Day thru October.
If you chose Sandy Island for your wedding, you will be renting the full 66 acre island for you and your guests! There are 43 cabins in a variety of sizes for your guests to stay in Friday night thru Sunday morning. The bride and Groom will assign their guests to cabins as they see fit. Camp capacity for cabins is about 200 people. Wedding guests will come on a 60 person ferry boat driven by Island staff. We will create a boat schedule with the bride and groom based around their needs for the weekend. Staff will deliver guests luggage to their assigned cabins so the worry free fun can start as soon as you step onto the boat!
Sandy Island offers the use of our on island Chef for your weekend away! We set up a rehearsal BBQ dinner Friday night, followed by a bon fire & S'mores. Saturday will be a buffet breakfast and lunch for everyone to enjoy, and a morning brunch on Sunday. The menu for these meals as well as your reception meal will be discussed and planned with the bride and groom.
