Mini Camp (July 3-5) Ages 6-10

As an introduction to Silver Lake this is the perfect camp! Mini Camp is 3 days and 2 nights  Counsellor to camper ratios are increased to ensure your child receives the attention needed to make the first camp experience amazing! Mini Camp includes a wide range of camp activities: time at the waterfront (morning dip, swimming, pond activities), nature, Quest (the faith formation program), crafts, and garden. In addition campers can choose activities like gaga ball, field games and tether ball before supper. Every morning there is time for reflection with Morning Watch and every evening there’s a campfire time (with an actual fire if there’s no fire ban or inclement weather) with fun skits, songs and reflection times. We make the effort to accommodate bunk-mate requests so bring a friend!  Tip: For first time campers Mini-Camp is recommended.

Note:  There is no stayover between Mini Camp and Junior Camp.  Campers wanting a longer camp experience for this age range can choose Junior Camp (3 nights) or Camp 1 (4 nights).
