Silver Lake is one of the Outdoor Ministry sites of the Southern New England Conference of the UCC. It was purchased in 1957 and has nurtured generations of Congregational and United Church of Christ children, families, and youth. It has also been the site for adult retreats and training events as well as for outside groups such as school system outdoor education events.


5 winterized buildings and many summer use buildings are on site, as well as a High Ropes and Low Ropes Course with trained facilitators. The crowning jewel is Silver Lake itself, Mudge Pond on State maps with our waterfront swimming and boating area.


Everyone is invited to play in God's Backyard at Silver Lake.


Summer residential "Conferences" will be 1-week sessions in 2022. The age range is from Grade 5 -12 based on the grade entering in the fall of 2022 with limited capacity this summer.

Scholarship from the Roxbury Church are available.- See Rev. Peters.
