Although nuts and nut products are prohibited in all of our programs and facilities, we cannot guarantee that campers will not come in contact with traces of nut products while here at camp. Please refrain from bringing nut products to Silver Lake for the overall well-being of our campers.
We say it in a variety of ways, but when you get right down to it, the purpose of SLWC is simple: to help anyone of any age to know God and grow to become more like Him. Everyone who comes to camp will have the opportunity to explore, discover and decide in regard to faith issues.
Camps for almost everyone have been run here since 1958. Children and teens are our primary focus, but you will quickly see that we offer camping experiences for all ages. We love camping and we would love to be your choice for you and your family.
[Special Notice: This coming month, SLWC could benefit from program staff who are 18 or older. If you or someone you know fits this description, please consider joining our team this summer.]
If you are interested in serving and giving your time and energy to making a difference in a camper's life then we would like to hear from you. Please download, complete and then ground mail or scan and email the Ministry Team Application found here.
Keeping Campers Safe
At Silver Lake Wesleyan Camp, we strive to maintain a consistently healthy environment for our campers. As a community living in close quarters, head lice can spread quickly and be hard to eliminate. In an effort to prevent lice, we ask parents to check their child’s head before they come to camp. In order to assist parents and maintain a healthy camp we abide by the following policy:
Upon check-in on the first day of camp, each camper will be checked for head lice.
If any lice or nits are found at that time or at any time during the camping session, the camper will be asked to return home.
Once the camper is nit-free, parents can choose to bring their child back for another camp week of equal value. Alternatively, they can be refunded two-thirds of the camp fee (and/or use this refund towards a week of camp the following year.)
SLWC holds to a very strict drinking water treatment, monitoring and testing regimine which ensures a safe drining water supply for all our campers and guests. The following information and documents are available at the SLWC office for review by the public free of charge during normal business hours.
1. All test results
2. Annual Reports
3. Trained Person certificates
4. EER and Declaration of Professional Engineer
5. Copy of O. Reg. 170/3
Although we do our best to provide healthy and tasty meals it is impossible for us to meet all dietary requirements and preferences.
Please plan to bring supplementary supplies with you that help meet your specific needs.
Silver Lake is remote enough to be liberating, but still close enough to be accessible.
If you need directions, head on over to Google Maps on your desktop computer or download the app on your Android or iPhone device (but once you get here, be sure to leave your gadgets turned off!). There is a useful feature which allows you to input directions. We are located at 512 Wesleyan Camp Lane, Maberly, Ontario, just off of the Trans-Canada Highway.
