Silver Lake Resort is sending out an S.O.S. for Start of Summer Fun

Looking for a way to celebrate the beginning of summer fun? For a 10th consecutive year, Silver Lake Resort and Campground is hosting a party to celebrate the Start of Summer for their guests. This year’s event is June 8, 2019.

Silver Lake owner Don Tucker said this event draws families from all over who love to to attend, even if it overlaps with their family’s busy school-year schedules.

He said it is a fun time that marks the start of more relaxation and outdoor fun.

Trail Run and Kids Dash are a Big Hit… and so are the Prizes

Usually 300-400 campers attend the event. There is no special admission cost for the day’s events, as it is part of campers’ regular lodging fee for that day.

“Families commute in from Grand Rapids and sometimes do our events, then head back to Grand Rapids to finish out their activities still going on from the school year,” Don said.

Start the summer off on the right foot  at 10AM with a Trail Run for runners age 12 and older, followed by the S.O.S. Kids Dash for ages 2-11 at 11:15AM.

About 60 runners are expected for the Trail Run, and Don said the Kids Dash is always a big hit with lots of participation.

Top three finishers from the Trail Run get to choose prizes that have been donated by the event’s sponsors: Parrot’s Landing Jeep Tours, Mac Wood’s Dune Rides, Sierra Sands Family Lodge, and Craig’s Cruisers at Silver Lake.

 

Kids will Love the Scavenger Hunt, DJ Pool Party and Outdoor Movie

Don said the S.O.S. Scavenger Hunt, that begins at 1PM requires a sharp eye and quick brain, but he results will be worth it. All who complete the challenge will receive a sweet treat as a prize. The hunt takes place within the campground of 230 sites and does not require a vehicle as it has in past years. However, be prepared to work for your prize.

“We don’t make it easy!” Don said.

The Live DJ Pool Party is next at 5PM. The heated pool will be open and filled with fun inflatables while favorite summer hits play. Families can request music to dance and swim away the evening.

One last event of the day – Movie time! Join fellow campers on the Silver Lake pavillion to watch Ralph Breaks the Internet on the large projection screen with surround-sound speakers. And of course, fresh popcorn – all you can eat!

What a perfect way to kick off the Start of Summer – camping and making wonderful outdoor memories with your family.

Silver Lake Resort and Campground opens for the season May 1. You can book your campsite now – only one mile from the Silver Lake Dunes!
