Near the end of their “Mediterranean Cruise”, Paul told everyone on board, “…not one of you will be lost; only the ship will be destroyed.” Yet when some sailors tried to escape the battered ship, Paul said, “Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved". On the surface, this seems to be a contradiction; but it is an example of what God means when he says, "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose".
So, it isn't a contradiction: it simply means that, while we are called by our Father to live for Jesus Christ because of what he did for us on the cross (and we truly are!), Jesus himself promises to be with us and to help us do this very thing every step of our way to his eternal kingdom, since he's the "author and perfecter of our faith" as well as of everything which flows from it. So, we can trust that he'll be with us in every detail of "the race he has marked out for us" and that he can be fully trusted to "complete the good work he has begun in us".
We hope you'll be here at Shiloh this summer as we talk about just what such a living relationship with Jesus Christ looks like and how he commits himself to guaranteeing it and its fruit in our lives forever.
Who we are... God has given us a beautiful place here in the White Mountains and a desire to share it and His Word with young people. Kids connect well here at Shiloh in a family-like setting. That’s really our niche both as a camp and retreat. May Christ continue to strengthen us as we point young people to His Truth and seek to serve them for His sake.
Sessions... We hold 4-6 weeks of camp depending on enrollment. Senior Camp (ages 13-18) run first then Junior camp (ages 9-12). Weeks of camp run from Sunday night to mid-day Saturday.
Housing... We have space for 32 campers at Camp Shiloh. Campers stay in the lodge, the ground floor of which is used as dinning area, meeting hall and game room. The second floor is divided into boys' and girls' dormitories. Counselor sleep in each bunkroom with the campers.
Program... Involves morning and evening devotions with the Campers and their counselors as well as two camp meetings characterized by singing, prayer, and a message from God's word. A wide range of texts and topics are dealt with by which the kids are challenged to give their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ through repentance and faith and to follow Him. Messages are fitted to the needs of both Christian and non-Christian young people. We endeavor to preach the whole counsel of God in an understandable and challenging way and try to meet the kids where they are.
Daily Schedule... We wake our campers at 7:30 AM. After Breakfast and a morning meeting, campers go on to their daily activities. Two afternoons a week the campers have chaperoned free time, the other afternoons are filled with outdoor games, a hike, swimming and rafting for senior campers. Dinner is served at 5:30pm followed by a camp meeting, then on to night games. For Junior camp lights out is at 10:00 PM. Seniors are allowed to stay up till 11:00 PM.
Meals... are all home-cooked, family style, all you can eat.
