RENT the Beautiful Cradle Beach Facilities


Cradle Beach opens its doors to many agencies with similar missions from September to June. We have a unique facility for those organizations that would like a change of pace from their usual surroundings. Organizations such as the Buffalo Public Schools, Canisius High School, Life Transition Services, Children's Hospital, and Youth Leadership Buffalo use our campus for youth retreats, so young people can immerse themselves in learning for several days at a time.

In addition, Cradle Beach can provide programming in youth leadership and outdoor education for groups of children and/or adults. Groups such as Frontier Middle School, Burgard High School, and Parents Against Substance Abuse enjoy the programs offered by our staff who are veterans to youth development.
