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.

Share the Adventure!

Silver Lake is building a new High Ropes Course, and we need your help! Join the Share the Adventure Campaign with your donation today! Learn more here.
