Children’s Program

children's programWe love children and we do our best at East Silent Resort to make sure that they can have a safe and exciting vacation with lots of activities. The daily children’s program at East Silent Lake Resort is one of the many reasons families return year after year. While parents often choose to observe (and participate), our children’s program is designed to give parents time to enjoy our facilities without worrying about what the children are doing. And the kids will go home with many fun filled stories to tell about their vacation in beautiful Otter Tail Lakes Country.

During our summer season, scheduled children’s activities are offered each morning (Mon. – Fri.) for ages 4-12 (approximately). Activities are not held on Wednesday as many families head to the International Turtle Races in nearby Perham, MN. The children’s program is free and supervised by Margaret and Heather!
