We are sad to say that we are postponing the Pride Retreat, originally scheduled for Nov. 5-7 at Silver Lake.

The intention of this event is to give LGBTQ+ youth and allies an opportunity to feel a part of a wider community, and we are not able to offer that experience this year due to low enrollment.

“We are, of course, deeply disappointed but recognize that the ongoing impacts of the pandemic mean that this November is just not the right time yet,” wrote Pride Retreat Deans Skyler Keiter-Massefski, David Pletta, and Seth Hodge.

Silver Lake is committed to offering events that support and affirm LGBTQ+ youth, families, and allies. We will work to identify a future date for a high school retreat as well as to create other ways for our families to engage with each other around issues of identity and faith.

Please keep an eye out for information about a new event, either this spring or next fall, as well as other new programs.

This weekend retreat is a safe space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies to explore issues of identity and faith through a lens of progressive Christian values.
All are welcome, regardless of faith identity or belief.

Join a community of your peers for fun, laughter, connection, music, community, campfires, history, low ropes, arts and crafts, fashion shows, and discussion.

This retreat it open to youth in grades 9-12.
Weekend lodging is determined by age, not by gender.

Registration is available online; the cost is $140 per person; a complete health record and Covid-19 vaccination is required. 

Weekend leaders:
Seth Hodge, Skyler Keiter-Massefski, David Pletta

Vaccine Requirement Announcement
Beginning fall 2021, Silver Lake will require all guests to our site to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Those who are not able to be vaccinated due to a medical condition or due to age may show proof of a negative PCR test taken not more than 3 days before the event. Read the full announcement.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic all of our programs are being evaluated and possibly reimagined to incorporate safety procedures, such as smaller group sizes and physical distancing. Policies could include requiring full vaccination, proof of a negative PCR Covid test before arrival, masking, distancing, etc. More information will be sent to participants in advance of the program.
