About the Course

This is a classic trail run/walk through the woods of Sky Lake. While the route is set on developed hiking trails (with a couple grassy portions thrown in), be prepared for: uneven terrain; lots of tree roots; some rocks; a couple hills; and yes, even a few muddy spots for good measure. Please wear appropriate footwear! The 5K race will be professionally timed.

Please note that in the event that conditions do not allow for our trail system to be used for the race, we will use an alternate lap course using the West Shore Field and Campground Road.

About the Campership Fund

Each summer hundreds of campers, volunteers, and paid staff enjoy classic camp programs designed for children, youth, families, and individuals with special needs. In addition to the funding available from local churches and organizations, almost 25% of our campers rely on the Campership Fund to make a week at Sky Lake possible.

This year’s Sky Lake 5K Trail Run & Walk brought to you in part by:

We invite individuals, families, churches, businesses, and organizations to consider co-sponsoring our 5K Trail Run & Walk. Sponsorship levels start at $50. Download our Sponsorship Flyer here and then contact us to add your name and/or logo here!

Spring Fling 2017May 26th - May 29th, 2017

Spring Fling 2017

Spring Fling at Sky Lake offers families of all ages, shapes, and sizes an excellent opportunity to get outside and enjoy time together relaxing, playing, learning, and growing in faith. A variety of activities are combined with ample free time, so when you aren’t making a craft, enjoying a sing-a-long, making ice cream, or going for a boat ride, you can sit back and toast a marshmallow, read a good book, or go for a hike. Your time is just that—yours!

Available Packages:

Campground (May 26-29)

Bring your own tent or camper and set up on one of twenty-five private campsites. Each campsite is located off the unpaved driveway that passes through the family campground. A handful of sites even come equipped with 110-Volt electricity hookups (hurry, these go quickly). Occupancy on each site is limited to six persons. An exception to this rule is granted for immediate families (parents and dependent children) comprised of more than six persons. Fire-rings and a picnic table are provided on each site, as campground guests cook their own food. Showering and toilet facilities are located in Caldwell Pavilion in the heart of the campground. The base fee includes a three-night stay and a small program fee. You may arrive any time on Friday and depart any time on Monday. Want to extend your weekend? Spend Thursday or Monday night for an additional fee.
Campground—non-electric site (5/26-29): $55 per site

West Shore Cabins (May 26-29)

The West Shore Cabins are the perfect choice for families looking for slightly more rustic accommodations than Riley Lodge, but aren’t too keen on spending a weekend in a tent. Each cabin has six bunk beds and one twin-size single bed. There are electric outlets and overhead lights in each cabin—so you don’t have to worry about fumbling around in the dark! Showering and toilet facilities are located in the West Shore Bathhouse, a short walk up the hill from the cabins. You may arrive any time after noon on Friday. Programming will end at noon on Monday.
West Shore Cabin (5/26-29): $100 per cabin

Riley Lodge (May 27-29)

Riley Lodge makes it simple for families to enjoy a weekend at Sky Lake without having to “rough it”! A series of two-, three-, four-, and five-person rooms are easily able to accommodate different sized families. We provide you with a bed and mattress, you bring the linens. Bathrooms are located just across the hall or within the room. Meals are included in the Riley Lodge option and will be taken in Founders’ Lodge. And good news for immediate families with more than three members—you’ll be charged a maximum of $450.00 (excluding Friday night option)! You may arrive any time after 11:00am on Saturday. Meal service will begin at noon that day. Programming will end at noon on Monday.

Ladies of the Lake 2017October 6th - October 8th, 2017

Ladies of the Lake 2017

Come away and rest awhile as you spend a weekend at Sky Lake free of the distractions of the outside world. Enjoy the company of fellow Christian women as you take advantage of the various activities that will be offered. Dine on healthy and delicious meals prepared by our kitchen staff. Read a book, knit, or even nap by the fireplace in Riley Lodge. Be inspired by your new prayer journal. Go home rejuvenated.

Mild and Wild

During each activity session, there will be a mild and a wild option from which to choose. Mild options will be more subdued, while the wild options will most likely increase your heartbeat! The cost of most activities is included in your registration fee, however some options will require a small additional fee at time of service. The fee will be for art supplies, floral supplies, jewelry, massage, etc. This “a la carte” fee is to keep the cost of registration down. You will receive a list of activities with any additional fees (payable to the instructor) prior to the retreat.

Available Packages:

Riley Lodge ($210*)

Simple, yet comfortable retreat lodge overlooking the lake. Be close to the center of evening activities. Two to five women per room. Linen service included (although you may want to bring a sleeping bag for the chick flick!)

Underwood Lodge ($250*)

Modern, motel-style retreat lodge nestled into the edge of the woods. Maximum of three women per room. Linen service included (although you may want to bring a sleeping bag for the chick flick!)

Overnight accommodations, meals, and most programming included in these packages.

For women ages 18+
