Each summer, Camp Siloam becomes home to 70+ college students. Although the camp welcomes thousands of campers over the course of the summer, the college students who call camp home in the summer are crucial to the ministry Camp Siloam does. Every year, during the last two weeks of May, the Home Team excitedly awaits the arrival of the college students who have graciously given up their summer to help this ministry further God’s kingdom.
From the first day of orientation to the night of the end of the summer staff banquet, through tears and laughter, long days and short weeks, the experience and bonds that these college students take with them after they leave the summer are something they will cherish forever.
Don’t believe me? Just ask Mallory Jones, a young lady who served on the 2015 and 2016 summer staff, as well as served at other camp events, such as Radiant and the Fall Retreat.
Not only do you get to do the greatest thing in the world by sharing the Gospel with others, but you also get real world experience.
“Working at Camp Siloam has prepared me for ministry on my campus, in my job and in my local church.”
Not to mention, the incredible friendships you will make and keep for the rest of your life.
“I think one of my favorite memories from being on camp staff is that I didn’t really know any of the other staff very well on the first day of training, but in a very short time we became a family. My friends from camp staff are now my dearest friends. The unity of Christ that is experienced in a community of faith striving to see lives transformed by the Gospel is so fulfilling.”
