Many young people in Oklahoma City need an opportunity to get away from the troubles and temptations of their lives. These “at risk” kids face daily pressures of school violence, gangs, crime, and fragmented homes. Many feel defeated before they ever get started in life. Unfortunately, many kids are unable to afford an escape. Shiloh offers year round programming for at-risk children and their families. Shiloh Camp targets our camping experience to disadvantaged kids who live in Oklahoma City and the surrounding area. We provide a great opportunity for young people to experience the love of God and discover His purpose for their lives. Shiloh Camp desires that each child know, without a doubt, that they are important, valued and loved.
