The Silver Lake Award recognizes someone whose life has been visibly shaped by the core values of Silver Lake Camp & Retreat Center and who, in turn, live their life and faith in a way that reflects the formative experiences they have had at Silver Lake.
This person truly takes Silver Lake home with them beyond Low Road.
