Consider being part of the 2020 team!

Every summer a passionate, gifted and amazing staff is hired to make Silver Lake an inspiring place for children and youth to have fun, grow in faith, and to experience the best week of their summer! Throughout the summer, volunteers join the staff in counselling and site roles. Staff care for campers and act as role models through the adventures, games and faith formation of each day. Along the way, staff experience God, grow in leadership and often receive as much (or more) than they give.

Meet Our Leadership

Hi friends! My name is Janelle Taylor, but you might know me as Jan. I’m beyond thrilled to be serve as the Director of Silver Lake Camp this summer! This special place of SLC has been a rich ground of friendship, growth and adventure for me over the last decade. I can’t wait to be back on site, to jump off the diving dock with you, watch our funny skits, and see the beautiful view of the lake at Vespers Point. Join us for a week this summer, and you can trust it’s going to mean something unforgettable for you too. 
When I’m not at camp, I attend Tyndale Seminary and work with the Navigators in Hamilton doing campus ministry, mentoring young people in life and faith. It’s such a joy to find myself getting to work in this way during the summer months too!  As well, this spring I’ll be getting married to a fun guy named Steve, who loves sponge wars and dressing up in silly costumes! He comes from Ryerson Camp and is currently a director of Leadership Development Camp. We’re excited do ministry alongside each other and go on this summer’s adventure with you!
See you at Silver Lake Camp, for Summer 2020!
