Update From the Lake

August 26, 2020


Greetings from the Lake and THANK YOU!

We have received a record number of donations this year and we are so grateful for the incredible outpouring of support. Your gifts ensure that Silver Lake’s life-transforming ministry will continue for another 60 years – and beyond!

Though it’s been a quiet, strange summer here at camp, your year-round staff are working hard on what comes next. We are putting procedures and policies in place to allow us to safely welcome you back. 
Since July, we have been offering day visits for families/households to reserve a day to enjoy the site. We will continue to offer these visits at least through September. Sign up for your day here. 
Starting in September, we will offer overnight retreats for families/households. We are finalizing those details, but more information will be coming soon!   

This fall, we will also offer adventure programming to day groups. Youth groups, school groups, and others will be able to come to Silver Lake for a day of teambuilding activities, adapted to allow for social distancing while still meeting the group’s goals. Stay tuned for more details. 

Calendar Notes: 
  • Join us for the 14th Annual Silver Lake Golf Tournament.
    Tuesday, September 22, at the Country Club of Waterbury. 
    THE LAST DAY TO REGISTER is Tuesday, September 1. Details and registration here. 
    Not a golfer? Read this post about how to support the event as a sponsor.
  • The 2020 Silver Lake Award Celebration, originally scheduled for November, has been moved to April 2021. Date, time, and location are still being determined. Details will be announced closer to the date.  
  • The Silver Lake Pride Retreat (a weekend for LGBTQIAP+ identifying youth and their allies), originally scheduled for November 2020, has been cancelled. We are hopeful we will be able to offer this wonderful youth retreat opportunity in 2021.
