BRIEF CAMP DESCRIPTION: "Silver Lake is a place where I can be myself, and everyone accepts me." We hear this over and over again from the young people who come to a week of camp at Silver Lake.

Come and experience Christian community. "God's Backyard" is full of amazing nature and alive with life, acceptance, new friends, and lots of silly songs.

At Silver Lake, we tackle the high and low ropes courses, swim in our lake, play games on the ballfield, sing songs around the campfire, meet lifelong friends, and strengthen our relationship with God.

Registration for Summer 2015 opens Jan. 15, 2015, at Our Camp Website Link: www.silverlakect.org.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: To ensure your child has the best experience possible, the Director, Tim Hughes, and your dean (program leader) need to be aware in advance of any physical, emotional, or behavioral needs a child may have. While we are not equipped to handle every differently abled conferee, we will do our best to offer special support to as many children as we can. If you have questions about the camp's ability to support your child, please contact the Directors (timh[AT]ctucc.org) before registering. All information shared will be kept confidential. When registering, please include all relevant information.

CAMP INSTRUCTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED:
Musical Theater, Music/Band, Video/Filmmaking/Photography, Waterfront/Aquatics, Sailing, and more.

CAMP LOCATION: Nestled at the foot of the Berkshires in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut, Silver Lake Conference Center comprises more than 60 acres on a medium-sized pond.

CAMP FACILITIES: We have 13 summer cabins and 5 year-round retreat lodges, a large summer social hall and a smaller winter dining hall, outdoor basketball and volleyball courts, high and low ropes courses, swimming and boating on our pond, two outdoor chapels, a labyrinth, five outdoor fire pits, large ballfield.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Silver Lake Conference Center has been welcoming conferees (campers) for a week of life-changing, community-building adventure in God's Backyard since 1957. Summer camp is open to young people in grades 4 though 12. Our conferences cover a broad range of interests and activities, from musical theater to poetry to high-energy games to sailing and canoeing. See individual conference descriptions for more information. Our week-long conferences have offered "once-in-a-lifetime experiences, over and over" to several generations of youth, helping to shape future leaders and spirited community-builders everywhere.

Each week during the summer we host five conferences for different age groups with different themes. The theme of the conference helps to shape some of the activities for the week. For example, Silver Lake's Funniest Videos will spend some time writing, shooting, and editing short films. Biking North will go on biking adventures outside of Silver Lake.

While a lot of the group's activity will center on the conference's theme, all conferences are camp experiences first: You will live at camp, eat in the social hall with the other conferences, swim in the lake, check out the high and low ropes courses, dig around in the garden, or sit around a campfire. Also, each conference takes turns leading all-camp worship one night of the week.

Silver Lake has become a sacred place to so many people, young and old. We invite you to come away from the busyness of everyday life and find out what is so special about this ministry of God's love.

Silver Lake welcomes church groups, youth groups, schools, non-profits and businesses during the Fall, Winter, and Spring.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: We will offer a weekend Counselor-in-Training program in Spring 2015. Check Our Camp Website Link: www.silverlakect.org for dates and fees.
