Do Not Bring
Handheld Gaming systems

No spaghetti strap shirts
No two-piece bathing suits or speedos. Tankinis are allowed but no midriff must show.
Can I use my cellphone at camp? Can I get ahold of my child at anytime?
Camp Siloam has a policy that during their stay, cell phones, media players, or gaming devices are to be left at home. There is so much noise in the world and going to camp allows children to focus on the big picture of camp, getting to know Jesus. If the use of cellphone is absolutely necessary, they may be used in the bunkhouses at night prior to lights out under the leader’s supervision.
We will take them up once and secure them until free time.
During the day, if you would like to see how your child is doing you can message or call a leader. We will give these numbers out during the meeting since this is a public website.
Where do Campers Sleep?
Church groups stay together (separated by gender) in a bunkhouse for the whole week. Each bunkhouse has 24 beds and a bathroom with 3 showers, 3 toilets, and 3 sinks. All of our bunkhouses are Air Conditioned.
Important things to know:
Competition and Points – Color Wars, Church of the Week, and Tournaments. They will assign us a color when we get there, and I will have some supplies for the team color. (It will be red or blue). This is a big deal and we are so excited!
