Help Replenish the Silver Lake Scholarship Fund

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to award over $33,000 in scholarships to campers this summer! Now we need your help to replenish the fund for future program attendees.

Silver Lake's Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to families who need it. Our goal is to ensure all who want to come to camp are able to. Make a gift to the Scholarship Fund here.
