A member of our camp community has recently come forward to share a very sad and troubling part of her SLMC experience.  This link (click here) leads to Ruth-Ann Klassen Shantz’s public statement and Silver Lake’s response.  Please be advised that graphic content is included and reading the statements may be distressing.

These statements have been made available to Mennonite Church Eastern Canada, Canadian Mennonite, Crieff Hills Community, and the Ontario Camping Association today, along with a list of Silver Lake constituents.

Please e-mail Karen Cornies ( or Pamela Fehr ( if you have any questions.
