Welcome to Silver Lake Camp!

Celebrating 60 years

We're glad you're here! Silver Lake is a place where young people experience nature, make new friends, and explore their faith. With more than 60 acres of wooded land on lakeside shores, Silver Lake offers many opportunities for young people to take risks and try new things with the support of an intentional Christian community. 

Time and again we hear from our campers: "Silver Lake is where I can be the real me!" We invite you to take the plunge this summer and find your true self, new friends, and a closer connection to God.

We worship, learn, play, serve, and work together, respecting the right of private judgement. We seek to provide a safe environment of acceptance regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation, reflecting our unity in Christ and respecting the faith journeys of all of God’s children.

Silver Lake Lodge Furniture Fundraiser!

Online fundraising for Silver Lake Lodge Furniture

Be a part of history and make the Lodge at Silver Lake a welcoming and well furnished retreat space for you and others. With the support of generous donors Silver Lake Conference Center has been able to transform one of the oldest and most beloved buildings on site,  The Lodge has been redesigned and rebuilt.  It is now a Passive Energy house, which means we save 90% on heating an cooling costs, and 65% on total energy use. But we now need funds to furnish this space! Make your contribution today!
