2018 Open House: Sunday, May 20, 1-5 p.m.

Press Release:

SHARON — Silver Lake Conference Center will hold an open house Sunday, May 20, from 1 to 5 p.m. In addition to tours of the camp and conference center, the newly built high ropes course will be staffed and open to those who would like to climb, and the new disc golf course will be available for those who want to test their skill with a flying disc.

“We are so excited to officially open the new high ropes course,” said Rev. Ryan Gackenheimer, Executive Director. “The new design more fully supports the teambuilding aspect of our program. Many of the new elements can only be completed with the help of friends on the ground.”

Silver Lake Conference Center holds summer camp June through August for youth entering grades four through 12. Registration is now open for the summer program online at www.silverlakect.org. The conference center hosts retreat groups September through May, overnight or day groups, offering food services and challenge course programming.

The open house on May 20 will feature walking tours of the facilities, including the newly renovated passive house Lodge, a hayride to the waterfront on Mudge Pond, a campfire with marshmallows to roast, opportunities to climb the high ropes or play a hole or two of disc golf, cookies and juice, and giveaways of camp merchandise. There will be a ceremony to open the new high ropes and disc golf courses at 2 p.m. This free event is open to the public. RSVPs requested to slcc@ctucc.org.
