Water Slide 

Wow – What began as a dream in the summer of 2012 finally arrived in 2016. The waterslide was dedicated in May 2016 and has been getting plenty of use since. It is a great attraction for kids and various age groups - a number of geezers have used it.  Our goal in purchasing this slide was to attract more people to the camp, recognizing that once they get here we continue to participate in making and shaping them into Disciples of Christ.  We thank the Lord for providing this tool to further His ministry here at Silver Lake!

Over the past six years, a total of $54,925.64 was donated towards the slide.  As the final cost of the slide was $80,713, we used funds out of the operational budget to complete the work.  Donations are still being directed towards the shortfall of $25,788.  We invite you to help us make up this shortfall and ask you to consider donating the cost of 1 inch ($58.00), 1 foot ($701) or another amount as you determine.  


General Operations

At SLWC we try very hard to manage our income streams so that we have the funds necessary to maintain the property, buildings, equipment and infrastructure and to pay the salary of the staff who direct the ministry. Our main income streams are Camper Registration, Retreat and Rental Bookings, Leaseholder Fees and Donations. Approximately 30% of our total income depends on generous people like you...thank you for giving!


Camper Sponsorship

Our passion is to make camping an accessible experience for every child. Some families cannot pay the regis- tration fee, especially if there are several children in the family. Your donation of all (tuition costs between $340-395 typically) or a portion of a camper's registration will make all the difference for some deserving camper.


Staff Sponsorship

It takes a lot of passionate and energetic staff to minister at camp each summer. Counsellors, activities leaders, office staff, life guards, etc. who give many hours of dedicated time with little pay. We provide a weekly stipend plus room and board and challenge them to raise additional support. Your contribution helps us honour their ministry efforts in the fulfillment of our mission to reach the lost and teach the found. Thank-you for your thoughtful generosity.


Cottage/Trailer Payment

 Note that despite the button saying "donate" - these are treated as payments for cottage/trailer lease fees.


AUTO DEBIT DONATION form (download version)

One of the simplest, most thoughtful and helpful means to support our camping ministry is through a regular auto debit donation. You determine the amount, the target to which you give,  and the frequency of your giving. Simply download, print, complete and sign the form. Email or mailing to the listed camp address and you are done. Thank you for your generosity!  Hint: Many of our SLWC Leaseholders care for their annual fees using this method.
