Best Staff, Best Food, Best Facilities, Best Program!

Posted on: May 16th, 2016

While we do like to be modest, we are confident when we say Silver Lake is one of the best Outdoor Education Centres in Ontario.

Best Staff: All of our staff have extensive training and experience in outdoor education.  In addition, many of them grew up attending our summer camp program and graduated from our 2 year leadership training program and know first-hand the positive impact outdoor experiences can have on the lives of students. We have extensive professional development opportunities for all year-round and seasonal staff. All staff have Standard First Aid with CPR and nearly half are lifeguards (all swimming and waterfront activities are supervised by lifeguards).


Best Food: Quality, homemade food is culturally significant to Mennonites…………….students and teachers will experience that first-hand while at Silver Lake! Freshly baked bread, homemade pizza, soups and sauces from scratch and the list goes on. Most of our food, including meats and produce, is sourced from local farmers or from one of our two gardens.  Yum Yum!

Best Facilities: Over the past 6 years, we have invested over one million dollars in our facilities and property including a new dining hall, renovated commercial kitchen, five new camper cabins (soon to be seven), new washrooms and plenty of program equipment from a new archery range and an expanded low ropes course to a water trampoline and sailboats.

Best Program: We’re constantly visiting other outdoor education centers, networking with other professionals and taking in conferences all in an effort to provide exceptional programming. At Silver Lake we develop the program and schedule to your specific learning outcomes. The best part………………we only serve one overnight group at a time!
