ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Shiloh Youth Ranch is a Christian Summer Camp for children and youth ages 7-17 living in high risk situations. Shiloh Youth Ranch provides an opportunity for children and youth to experience a week-long, high impact relational summer camp. Many of these children and youth, without Shiloh, may never have the opportunity to receive hope, encouragement, acceptance, mentoring and unconditional love.

WHAT WE DO

Shiloh Youth Ranch offers horsemanship riding programs, archery, swimming, recreation activities, design classes, basketball, campfire times every evening with live bands, speakers, skits, games and mentoring sessions. With a focus on the old west our campers stay in covered wagons, eat together in our dining hall and build lifelong friendships and memories.

CONNECTIONS

Our Connections Mentorship Program is an important and exciting part of what we do at Shiloh! We love seeing the way our kids thrive in the context of camp. However, returning home can present some challenges as some return to old habits or get mixed in with the wrong crowds. That is why we have developed our Connections Program! We want our kids to be plugged into positive programming year-round. With parents' permission, our Connections staff would love the opportunity to meet with Shiloh kids for coffee, help them with homework, come to their sports games, and take them to youth group or church. Basically, we want to do life with them. We have seen the difference that positive influence can have on a young life and we are excited about the opportunity to help guide our Shiloh kids in the right direction!

Checking off the connections box on the application form means that if your kid lives in the Edmonton area, one of our Connections Staff will contact them at some point after camp and a positive relationship with these kids can begin. We are hoping these positive relationships will carry on for years to come.
