School Kits from Missions Program donated to MCCO

Posted on: November 21st, 2011 by Silver Lake Mennonite Camp

On Friday November 18th, a group of 35 Silver Lakers delivered, donated and packed the approximately 500 school kits assembled during the summer Missions program. Mini campers right up to CILTs had a tour of the MCCO Material Resources Warehouse, packed school kits into shipping boxes and enjoyed a pizza lunch! Thanks to our friends at MCCO including Bob Lebold for a great service experience!

New Initiatives are being installed today!

Posted on: November 10th, 2011 by Silver Lake Mennonite Camp

As part of our 50th anniversary capital campaign, we are revitalizing the initiatives area (Family Camp area for old timers!) by adding 6 new team building elements. We have also opened up the circle area around the timber-frame shelter to create open space for co-operative games and other fun activities. The elements are being built into trees and telephone poles – check out the pictures of the installers transporting the poles from the camp office to initiatives (it took half a day to get them back there).

The windows are in, the siding is on and the drywall is up and has a few coats of mud. The addition looks great! Still aiming for a mid December occupancy date.
