About Camp Shiloh

Camp Shiloh is a faith-based summer sleep-away camp 90 miles outside of New York City in Woodridge, NY that has been serving NYC area youth since 1951.

Serving at Camp Shiloh is life-giving, service-driven, transformative work.

We believe spending time in nature surrounded by Christian community is powerful, especially for youth with limited access to spaces beyond their neighborhood. We believe every kid deserves to be in nature and experience a barrier-free sleep-away camp, so we provide full scholarships to our campers from low-income neighborhoods, like the South Bronx. We celebrate the diverse setting created at camp as an incredible opportunity to open barriers, celebrate cultures and love more deeply.

Camp Shiloh's mission requires a team of capable young adults who are ready to teach every camper that they are capable, valued, and loved by God. After over 65 years we know that when a child leaves camp knowing that truth, their life is forever impacted, and the staff member that walked alongside them is never forgotten.

Camp Shiloh is 5 weeks, plus 2 weeks of training. You'll pick the activity you help teach-- like swimming, climbing tower, challenge course, nature, archery, sports, or arts and crafts.

You will care for children who need a space to be a kid and know what it means to be loved by God through building trustworthy relationships that impact self-esteem, grow lifelong friendships and break down the walls that separate kids from the world beyond New York.
