To be a servant leader requires a mental shift, a change in your attitudes. God is always more interested in why we do something than in what we do. Are you ready to put feet to your faith? Do you want to activate what you have learned and what others have shared with you? Do you need to get off the religious side lines and serve? Then come join us this summer in one of the most dynamic ministry experiences you will ever have, right here at Shiloh Camp!

One leader and one assistant/volunteer are responsible for a family group of campers; this group is divided into groups by age and gender. Counselors take their family groups to each activity; sit together during lunch, as well during time in the amphitheater, lead daily family group discussion. Counselors must be comfortable leading discussions and bible study within the group and be receptive to a camper’s spiritual needs. Family group time is the most important time of the day at Shiloh. The desire is to provide a safe, loving place for a camper to feel accepted and part of a family.
