Dave Mason, Executive Director
I'm Dave and I'm the Executive Director at Silver Lake Wesleyan Camp. Thank you for visiting our camp's page here on OurKids. I was born in 1977 and raised in the Ottawa area. My family started coming to Silver Lake when I was very young in the early 80's. As far back as I can remember Silver Lake Wesleyan Camp was part of my life. This is the place I committed my life to Jesus and where I made the decision to attend Indiana Wesleyan University. I've been a camper, a counsellor, a volunteer, a camp speaker, program director and everything else in between. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Indiana Wesleyan University in 1999. When I graduated I split my time between teaching and working as a Junior High Youth Pastor in Marion, IN before becoming a full time Pastor. I moved to Saint John, NB to work further as a Youth Pastor at a church there before transitioning to Creative Arts Pastor where I was in charge of all audio, visual, web and print media of the ministries of that church. I spent a couple years as a carpenter after that before finding my way back to Ontario to take on the role of Executive Director here at Silver Lake Wesleyan Camp. It's been a long and winding road that led me back to this place but I am grateful for it. SLWC has always had a special place in my heart and I tried to get back to this place at least once every summer. Now my job is to share my love for this place with others. Our mission at the camp is to share the love of Jesus with as many as possible through camp ministry. It's my job to see that that happens. I would love to share with you all about Silver Lake Wesleyan Camp and how we can serve you. Please don't hesitate to write me with any questions you might have and I'll do my best to answer or point you in the right direction.
God is Love,
