The High Ropes Course at Silver Lake has provided countless people with the opportunity to be challenged while working with their teammates to reach unexpected heights. However, after fifteen years, the current course is nearing the end of its life cycle. We are going to allow the current site to return to its natural glory.
A committee of key Silver Lake staff and board members has worked with High Five, a challenge course design-build firm, for almost a year to identify a new site and select the elements to be included. We are happy to report construction has already started and we have launched the Share the Adventure Campaign – a fundraising campaign with a goal of $120,000 to fund the new course.
The new high ropes course will include multiple elements that can only be completed with the assistance of your team, allowing 15-20 participants to be actively engaged in the course as compared to the current design, which only allows for 3-4. In addition to retreat guests and campers using the new course, we believe that local community groups, schools, and businesses will also use the course, increasing Silver Lake’s relationships in the local community.
To ensure that the course will be ready for summer 2018, the Connecticut Conference has generously advanced Silver Lake the funds to complete the building phase. Your support is needed to ensure that funds are not diverted from other needs to cover this necessary improvement.
Please consider a gift to support the Share the Adventure Campaign - no gift is too small.
