Sky Lake Open House 2019
UPDATE 5/16: Open House Has Moved!

We’ve done sun, snow, wind, and rain for open house over the years, but the forecast for thunderstorms all afternoon on Sunday (5/19) is a bit too much for us. So we’re erring on the side of safety and rescheduling our Sky Lake Open House for Sunday, June 2nd. Hope to see you then!

Join us from 1:30-5:00 on Sunday, June 2nd for our annual Open House!

If you have always wondered what summer camp is like at Sky Lake, come to our Open House and sample some of our favorite activities for yourself. In addition to boating, crafts, and guided tour, you’ll also be able to register for camp, go on a hayride, peek inside a couple cabins, and enjoy a delicious hot dog roast.

Open House 2019 will also feature our 5K Trail Run and Walk to benefit the Sky Lake Campership Fund. The race will begin at 3:30pm. Conditions permitting, the race will follow our standard 5K route through the woods. For more information and/or to register, visit: runsignup.com/Race/NY/Windsor/SkyLake5K

Hot Dog Roast

$5.00 pre-sale, $6.00 at the door. You can contact us to purchase tickets in advance.
(5K participants, please note that a meal ticket is included in your registration fee.)

Spring Fling 2019May 24th - May 27th, 2019

Spring Fling 2019

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 24-27)

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 (5/24-27): $65 per site
Campground—non-electric site, early arrival (5/23): $14 per site
Campground—non-electric site, late departure (5/28): $14 per site

Campground—electric site (May 24-27): $85 per site

West Shore Cabins (May 24-27)

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 (5/24-27): $110 per cabin

Riley Lodge (May 25-27)

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 $500.00 (excluding Friday night option)! You may arrive any time after 10:00am on Saturday. Meal service will begin at noon that day. Programming will end at noon on Monday.

Riley and Underwood Lodges

Come away and rest awhile as you spend a weekend at Sky Lake free of the distractions of the outside world.

Read a book, knit, or even nap by the fireplace in Riley Lodge. Go home inspired and 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 the 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 ($250*)

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.
