Staff Page

Many campers love Camp Shiloh so much that they come back as staff once they are no longer camper age. Volunteering as staff allows them to continue participating in the highlights of camp (growing spiritually, enjoying games, making friends, and more) while also ministering and investing in the lives of others.

For those desiring to volunteer as counselors, the camp provides qualifications and ideas to help make sure the counselors are best prepared to serve the young people. To maximize the effectiveness of staff at Camp Shiloh, all staff members need to read/watch the information. Many Christian camps have 1-2 weeks of staff training before camp begins. Since our format does not allow for a longer intensive training as a group, it is vital that the staff members take the time to go through the training materials found below.

Camp Covenant and Worker’s Application (The application must be signed and returned no later than arriving at camp.)

Camp Abuse Video

This video goes over some helpful ways to protect campers and staff at camp. In this day and age, it is important to be aware of the sad reality of child abuse and to be informed on how to stop abuse. This video’s information is vital for all camp staff to understand regardless of what position you will serve as a volunteer. The original video was by Church Mutual, but the video was unavailable this year. This is a slightly smaller portion of the same video.

Those who minister to children have a uniquely powerful influence. May this short video encourage you to keep up the great work. Although originally made for Sunday School teachers, those who minister at camp can also relate to the blessing of being used by God to make a difference.

An additional item for camp staff to be aware of is how to handle pictures of campers. Therefore, here is Camp Shiloh’s policy on posting pictures.

In upholding the wishes of parents to protect the privacy of their children, Camp Shiloh designates one or more camp photographers. The Dean of each week will approve the photographer(s).

Each approved camp photographer will have a list of which campers cannot be posted to Facebook. Camp staff members are not allowed to post pictures of campers on their private Facebook pages, but they may share pictures from the Camp Shiloh Facebook page because they have been approved by the photographers with the camper’s parental permission. If staff post pictures of campers without parent’s permission, that staff member and/or the camp could possibly face legal problems.

If you have a photo that you would like to have placed on the camp Facebook page, please contact the Camp Photographer or the Dean. They will verify whether or not the camper’s picture can be placed on the internet.

Thank you for your understanding in helping to keep campers safe and to support the desires of their parents.

(This is a goldmine of material to help you be greatly prepared for a great week of ministering and impacting.)
