The Apostle Paul says, "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." (Galatians 5:6) This is his summary of Christian living. In our age of "easy believism" this has been shortened to "All that matters is faith." But against this notion James warns us: "You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder." (James 2:19) This is because true faith in Christ is always accompanied by a transformed life…a life of love, not perfectly, but purposefully; Christ loves sinners into being lovers themselves. And the Law of the Lord is the perfect expression of what love really is.
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.

We hope you'll join us here at Camp Shiloh this summer as we explore the realities of Christ's work on behalf of sinners and how his bringing them into a covenant relationship with himself really changes them…turns them into lovers like himself as they experience the reality of his love for them by faith.
