The Our Kids review of Silver Lake Mennonite Camp
Unforgettable camp experiences are what sets Silver Lake Mennonite Camp apart from the rest. Personal growth is on the docket, along with new friendships, and lifelong memories. Welcoming is just one adjective that describes the feel of this camp, as campers of all backgrounds enjoy their time here. The staff are graduates of a two-year leadership program, and most have first-hand experience as campers themselves. The fresh, local, and homemade food made by the Mennonites could be the top reason campers come back year after year. There’s no writing home to mom about bad food here! The facilities are new or newly renovated, so campers feel quite at home. The programming is said to be exceptional, with activities tailored to each age group. The great outdoors is a prime focus, with water activities, campfires, field games, climbing, low ropes, and gardening (and more). Older campers can take a specialized camp—either boating or music—to learn skills and enjoy activities outside of the general programs. Silver Lake Mennonite Camp is an inclusive community for everyone, and is proud of their program that helps children with developmental needs attend the regular program. Financial assistance is also available. This camp is truly for everyone.
