Silver Lake Camp & Retreat Center is operated by a non-profit organization. The fees we charge for our programs and retreats do not cover our operating expenses. We rely on support from our churches, alumni, parents, and friends to provide our life-changing outdoor programming. Please consider a gift to support our ministry! There are many ways to give.
