Equipping young people with the tools that build hope.
Sirens ➤ Celebration
"I love everything about Celebration. After camp I sing the songs all year. It reminds me of God and being happy." NYC is loud. Conversations get interrupted by the sounds of sirens, trains, and construction. At Camp campers get to hear examples of God's love from the lives of staff members, and the lyrics of worship songs during Celebration, Camp Shiloh's time of praise and worship.
HighRise ➤ ClimbingTower
"I was afraid to climb to the top, but my counselor encouraged me to keep going. I learned to conquer my fears at camp." The skyline of trees and a climbing tower is a shift from the high rises that cover NYC's landscape. Camp Shiloh's climbing tower, zip line, and ropes courses give campers a place to learn to trust themselves to source their resilience.
WiFi ➤ Wilderness
"The activities were so fun at camp I didn't miss being inside playing video games." Camp Shiloh is 90 miles from NYC, but a huge change in scenery, and the first experience in nature for many of our campers. Hiking, picking wild blueberries, S'MORES over campfires and camp out night are a few of the ways campers interact in nature (internet free!).
Streetlights ➤ Stars
"Seeing the stars when we were camping out was a big moment for me. I saw God in a new way, and I was connected to God." In NYC there are too many lights to see a single star. At Camp Shiloh stargazing gives campers a glimpse of the expansive creation we are all a part of.
