About Silver Lake Camp and Retreat Center
Silver Lake Camp & Retreat Center (SLCRC), established in 1957, is a year-round ministry of the Southern New England Conference of the United Church of Christ. Our 60-acre campus is situated in the rolling hills of Litchfield County and bordered by the peaceful shores of Mudge Pond in Sharon, Connecticut. Nestled among pines, cedars, and maples, five year-round retreat buildings and two seasonal cabin villages, all varying sizes, make it possible to welcome groups as small as 10 and as large as 150 people. Each of our retreat facilities is designed to promote community building, with a large central meeting space surrounded by bedrooms. In addition to comfortable lodging, Silver Lake offers indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, full food services, high and low ropes challenge courses, and more. During the summer months we host a weekly overnight summer camp program where campers get to explore their faith journey while playing, swimming, climbing and making new friends.
