Big Day at the Lake ~ July 24th 2021

Big Day at the Lake was founded 176 years ago by friends, neighbors and businesses who had a vision of sharing the lake with at-risk children who would not otherwise experience Lake Norman. 

Help us meet our three goals:
1. Provide a day of fun on the lake for children who would not otherwise have this experience
2. Recruit Bigs
3. Raise money for a worthy organization

It takes a village to run Big Day at the Lake, and we are grateful  for the hundreds of volunteers who donate their time and talents to serving at-risk children in Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Carolinas. 

Become A Boat Host!

Boat Hosts are needed to take the Bigs and Littles out on Lake Norman for a day of fun.  Fill out the form below to become a Boat Host today! Here are some of the rules and information on being a Boat Host:

    • No alcohol prior to or during the event on July 24, 2021.

    • Provide life vests for your Big Brother(s)/Big Sister(s) and the Little(s)

    • Please, no personal watercraft

    • The next formal communication with Boat Hosts will come 7-10 days before the event, providing contact information for the Big Brother/Big Sister and information about the “Little.”

    • The Big Brother/Big Sister—think ‘built-in chaperone’—will be emailed your contact info

    • The next step is for the Boat Host and Big(s) to get in touch with each other to discuss the location of the Boat Host’s place of departure and any other information that may be helpful to ensure a successful morning of fun.

    • We recommend that you get in touch with your Big Brother/Sister immediately after receiving the contact information, to introduce yourself and provide directions to your launch spot.
