Silver Lake Camp & Retreat Center is a place where lives are changed and leaders are nurtured. Seeing that this happens is the responsibility of the Executive for Camps and Retreats,  who oversees the invitation to participate, the maintenance of a safe environment, the creation of a nurturing program, and the extravagant welcome offered by staff.

The Rev. Ryan Gackenheimer joined Silver Lake in 2016, coming from several years of ministry as Associate Pastor of the First Congregational Church UCC of Essex, Vermont. He has prior camp experience in Vermont and Idaho, and has served on the Board of the UCC's Outdoor Ministry Association. A graduate of DePauw University and Eden Theological Seminary, he and his wife, Abby, have a young son, Keadyn.
