Limited Edition Shirt SaleMay 24th - June 7th, 2020

Limited Edition Shirt Sale

We are super excited to share the details about this limited edition shirt sale with you!

We’ve partnered with Upstate Merch in Whitney Point to provide an online shop. They handle all the sales, printing, and shipping. The one catch is that you’ll only have until June 7th to place your order. Once that date passes, these designs will once again enter into retirement.

Proceeds from all sales will come back to Sky Lake to help sustain the ministry while summer camps are suspended. So shop early and shop often.

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 solely on the Campership Fund to make a week at Sky Lake possible.

Labor Day Family Weekend 2020September 4th - September 7th, 2020

Labor Day Family Weekend 2020

Labor Day Weekend traditionally signals the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Families, young, old, and in between, will enjoy this weekend retreat opportunity to relax, play, learn, and grow in faith. A variety of activities is combined with ample free time, so when you are not making a craft, enjoying the campfire 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.

Available Packages:

Campground (September 4-7)

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 (Friday-Monday): $70 per site
Campground—non-electric site, early arrival (Thursday): $15 per site
Campground—non-electric site, late departure (Tuesday): $15 per site

Campground—electric site (Friday-Monday): $90 per site
Campground—electric site, early arrival (Thursday): $21 per site
Campground—electric site, late departure (Tuesday): $21 per site

West Shore Cabins (September 4-7)

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 (Friday-Monday): $110 per cabin

Riley Lodge (September 5-7)

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 $525.00 (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 Lodge—adult, ages 18+ (Saturday-Monday): $175 per adult
Riley Lodge—youth, ages 12-17 (Saturday-Monday): $125 per youth
Riley Lodge—child, ages 4-12 (Saturday-Monday): $95 per child
Riley Lodge—toddler, ages 0-3 (Saturday-Monday): our treat!
Riley Lodge—Friday night option (including Saturday continental breakfast): $105 per immediate family

Ladies of the Lake 2020October 9th - October 11th, 2020

Ladies of the Lake 2020

9-11 October 2020
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. 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 food service team. 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 ($255*)

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.

Underwood Lodge ($280*)

Modern, motel-style retreat lodge nestled into the edge of the woods. Maximum of three women per room. Linen service included.

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

For women ages 18+

*SAVE $25 by registering by September 11th!
