About: Camp Siloam was started in 1923 by the Arkansas Baptist State Convention under the name Arkansas Baptist Assembly. The camp was run by the Arkansas Baptist State Convention up until 2006 when it was given its own non-profit status. Arkansas Baptist Assembly was known throughout the state simply as "Siloam," so in 2011, for marketing purposes, the camp changed its name to Camp Siloam. Today the camp still benefits from support from the Cooperative Program of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention and continues to serve churches by providing an affordable camping opportunity for teens and children.
Services : Summer Camp: The camp hosts eight weeks of camp during which gifted evangelists share the Gospel of Jesus with thousands of campers. Many churches use the camp as a way to reach out to youth and build a relationship with them. Camp Siloam completely programs camp so that a youth/children pastor or volunteer leader can focus on his or her campers. We offer Blast Camps for campers who have completed 3rd-6th grade and Forge Camps for campers who have completed 6th-12th grade. Retreats and Events: During the fall, winter and spring, the camp staff hosts youth retreats and rents the camp to groups for retreats or conferences. We can help you plan affordable retreats or conferences. Camp Siloam serves churches from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee and Kansas. We will host retreats and rent the camp to other Christian denominations. Denominations which have used the camp include Methodist, Lutheran, Church of Christ, Presbyterian, Evangelical, Fellowship Bible, Seventh Day Adventist, Episcopal, Assembly of God, and Pentecostal. The staff is very intentional about creating an environment for spiritual growth and everything they do points to the scriptural theme for the summer. Worship, group time discussions, and recreation are all designed to help youth and children grow as individuals and grow closer together.
Volunteer opportunities: We always welcome those looking to serve through volunteer work. We have a variety of projects here at the camp ranging from all kinds of work. Whether you are an individual looking for a volunteer project for a couple hours one day, or a group wanting to volunteer long term, we always appreciate the help.
