Covid-19 Updates

Summer 2022

There is so much to do to get ready for our campers! We are working hard to provide a safe, nurturing environment that will allow campers to connect with each other, their counselors, God, and creation in Silver Lake's 60+ wooded acres.

We are following CDC guidance, which has been changing rapidly, so as we update policies based on state, national, and American Camp Association guidelines, we will update this page. 

Vaccine Requirement

Silver Lake requires all guests to our site to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. If your camper has a medical exemption, please be in touch with Silver Lake as soon as possible.

Email: slcrc@silverlakect.org; Phone: 860-364-5526

As a ministry of the Southern New England Conference, United Church of Christ (SNE UCC), Silver Lake adheres to all the policies put in place by the Conference. Read the SNE UCC Covid Policies for Guests and Vendors - updated March 8, 2022.

Adapting to Covid-19

Silver Lake will follow best practices for Covid mitigation, which may include testing, cohorting, and masking. Exact policies will be determined closer to the summer, when we have a better idea of the state of the pandemic. Please pay attention to email communication from Silver Lake in the months before camp and check the website regularly for updates. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us to get information on current policies.

To ensure the safest environment for everyone, please follow all CDC guidelines for travelers, as well as have your camper continue to wear masks, practice distancing, limit attendance to large gatherings, and monitor your health in the weeks before camp.

Campers who test positive after arriving at Silver Lake will need to be picked up within 6 hours (unless parents are notified after 6 p.m. and live 3 hours or further away, in which case the camper will be isolated overnight). Campers will be housed in a separate cabin until they are picked up by a parent or guardian.

We appreciate your patience as we work to bring you a safe, fun, and fulfilling summer camp experience.
