– The SLC Mission

Board Leadership

 **Knowledgeable. Experienced. Forward-thinking. Dedicated.

The Board of Directors of Surprise Lake Camp — a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization — is responsible for the long-term fiscal health of the organization, for its strategic planning and policies, and for ensuring that its legacy is strong and vibrant.

We are fortunate to benefit from this Board’s deep expertise in many fields and passionate commitment to the mission, values, and community of this camp. Members include alumni and parents — a mix of business and community leaders — each one integral to, invested in, and actively involved with the success of SLC in achieving its mission. We are grateful that they are all so generous with their time, insight, and support for the work of SLC’s professional leadership.
