Can I just work a few weeks?
We would prefer everyone to make the full commitment for the summer (10-11 weeks depending on position), but we realize that isn’t always possible. Because of this, we have some positions that are able to work less than the full summer. You will be asked on the application when you’re able to work.

Some universities allow you to get internship credit if your job matches with the internship requirements. Give us a call at 479-250-1865 and ask.
Who is eligible to apply?
If you’re applying to be a summer staffer, you must have graduated high school and be at least 18 years of age by the day you report to camp (May 22, 2023) to be considered for any staff position. Our preference is to have staff that have completed at least one year of college. We do make a few exceptions; if curious, call and ask. If you are still in high school – check out our S-Core program Here.
Do I get time off?
Yes. Each week you will have Friday around 4pm (sometimes earlier) to Sunday at 6pm off. Staff use this time to do laundry, sleep, go to church and hangout.
Do I have to pay for housing and food or is that included?
We pay for your meals and your housing except for meals during time off.
What is OBE Week?
OBE is a large guest group that programs their own week of the camp. We still need most of the staff to work this week because the group needs food, recreation, maintenance, lifeguards, housekeeping, audio-visual, concessions, and other specific positions to help them have a great week of camp. Ask if your position is needed for this week. This week is the 11th week of the summer.
Still have questions?
People have a desire to exercise their freedoms to dress and act expressing their individualism. At Camp Siloam we have a responsibility to lay our freedoms aside for the sake of campers that come to camp who might be distracted by those freedoms. There are going to be things we require of you so that the Gospel can be preached to all our guests without distraction. We desire to minister to the most people possible and we have established some guidelines that will provide a summer filled with fun and focus on Christ. All staff will follow Camp Siloam policies regarding appearance, curfew and vehicles. Staff will be prohibited from the use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, or any dangerous drugs for the period of their employment; whether camp is in or out of session.
It is our desire to avoid causing conflict between parents, leaders and their children. Therefore, we have chosen to take a conservative approach in our dress, appearance and behavior. We want to show people that we’re a positive and purposeful staff, which begins with our appearance. As a staff member, you set an example for the campers. Your attitude and appearance will go a long way for many youth pastors, volunteers and parents.
- Piercings: Female employees may wear earrings in their ears. Male employees who have earrings or any staff with ear plugs or body piercings should wear clear or flesh-colored plugs when on grounds.
- Tattoos: Camp Siloam encourages the covering of all tattoos when in contact with guests. We recognize that some tattoos are potentially more, or less, offensive than others. Since it is impossible to address the variety of tattoos, please ask a camp director if you are concerned about a tattoo you may have. Camp Siloam reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to ask any employee to cover up any tattoo, at any time.
- Dress code: We request that each staffer, whether a guy or a girl, be humble and modest in his/her
personal appearance during camp. No “short shorts. Shorts must extend to the
fingertips. No spaghetti strap shirts or deep-cut tank tops. No tights/leggings or bike
shorts. No bikinis or speedos (Tankini bathing suits are okay as long as the top overlaps
the bottom). You will be given staff shirts to be worn daily.
