Silver Lake Conference Center will hold an open house Sunday, May 20, from 1 to 5 p.m. In addition to tours of the camp and conference center, the newly built high ropes course will be staffed and open to those who would like to climb, and the new disc golf course will be available for those who want to test their skill with a flying disc.
“We are so excited to officially open the new high ropes course,” said Rev. Ryan Gackenheimer, Executive Director. “The new design more fully supports the teambuilding aspect of our program. Many of the new elements can only be completed with the help of friends on the ground.”
