While we do like to be modest, we are confident when we say Silver Lake is one of the best camps in Ontario.
Best Staff: All of our staff have graduated from our two year leadership program, CILTs. In addition, many of them grew up attending camp at Silver Lake and know first-hand the positive impact they can have on the lives of campers. We have extensive professional development experiences and training for all year-round and summer staff. Our on-site, camper to staff ratio is 2:1, all staff have Standard First Aid with CPR and nearly half are lifeguards (all swimming and waterfront activities are supervised by lifeguards). Bottom line: our staff are here because they love kids!
Best Food: Quality, homemade food is culturally significant to Mennonites, and campers will experience that first hand while at camp! Fresh bread, homemade mac and cheese, soups and sauces from scratch and other tasty foods are some of the things the cooks make during the weeks. Most of our food, including meats and produce, is sourced from local farmers. Yum Yum
Best Facilities: Over the past 5 years, we have invested over one million dollars in our facilities and property including a new dining hall, renovated commercial kitchen, five new camper cabins (soon to be seven), new washrooms and plenty of program equipment from a new archery range and an expanded low ropes course to a water trampoline and sailboats.
Best Program: We’re constantly visiting other camps, outdoor education centers, and taking in conferences all in an effort to provide exceptional programming. At Silver Lake we dedicate each week at camp to a different age range to ensure your camper is there with others of similar age (6-10 yrs, 7-12 yrs, 9-14 yrs, 13-16 yrs) . That also allows us to tailor the programming to their specific age range.
