The primary purpose of Camp Glory Farm is to allow missionary children a safe place in which they can adjust from overseas living into the American culture through the interaction with our animals. Due to the fast-changing pace in our country today, there can be various hardships that these families face when they return to the USA. The animals are therapeutic for these families and help aide in the adjustment process.
Camp Glory Farm also provides a place for volunteers to come and stay in RV’s, tents, and yurts. This will free up the Family Life Center so that the missionary families can continue to use it without the volunteer teams being in there.
The volunteers will give time to help with ongoing construction, upkeep and maintenance of Siloam Missionary Homes’ campus, as well as working in the gardens and with the farm animals.
Camp Glory Farm will also provide:
- Educational Tours for school children. Children can come and learn how to care for the different animals that we have and what goes into the process. This will provide an evangelistic outreach for SMH.
- Summer Camp Opportunities.
- Internship Programs.
- The greenhouse and garden will provide food for the missionaries living at Siloam. (Currently unavailable)
How YOU can help:
Adopt an animal
Would you be willing to help us with the costs associated with raising our Goats, Sheep, Alpacas, Ducks, Guineas, and Chickens? Although our animals are raised primarily on pasture, we supplement their feed during the last couple weeks of pregnancy and while they are nursing their young. By adopting an animal, you would be helping us with the costs necessary to care for them such as vet visits, medications, etc.
By giving financially, you can help us purchase Farm Supplies, help with upkeep, equipment, electricity, etc.
Come individually, as a couple or bring a group to come do a work project. This could include gardening, building, planting, raking, painting, etc. There is always something to be done.
Let us Share
We would love to come and share Camp Glory Farm and Siloam Missionary Homes with your church, youth group, and school. Please give us a call to set up a meeting.
Siloam’s Internship Program exists to assist high school graduates and older to prepare for serving not only locally, but also all over the world. This program has been put together to serve Siloam Missionary Homes as well as to teach hands on training in small-scale farming and agriculture. This amazing opportunity is not only for personal and professional development, but also an opportunity to search out opportunities to go into a similar field of ministry; whether it is missions or other ministry.
Interns are involved in an intense learning experience through active work assignments where learning might occur through hands-on activities as well as personal research, seminars, and other field events. Interns will be responsible for farm demonstrations and learn basic skills in various areas such as animal husbandry, lasagna gardening, involvement with volunteers and work teams, tours and lunches, ground maintenance and office work.
As a support to Siloam, the intern is involved in the day-to-day operations. This allows interns the opportunity to be exposed to several different sides of ministry. Interns have the availability to take advantage of all of the resources available on Siloam’s campus. Resources include the Library, Family Center, Recreation and Exercise Rooms, Missionaries, Dad’s Country Store and the Treasure Chest.
Our internship, although rigorous and demanding, is an opportunity to give in service. This might be a variety of fulfilling tasks that range from easy to hard. These tasks could include pulling weeds, taking out the garbage and multiple other jobs. Regardless of the task, this amazing opportunity can teach the intern life skills that can help them regardless of where they serve.

“Mmmm… I sure do love Lasagna!”
What Does This Mean?
A Lasagna Garden uses organic composting layering techniques for a healthier garden.
How Does It Work?
Learn how to grow a garden in difficult circumstances by using a gravity-powered ram pump, drip irrigation, spring fed resources and animals to help water and feed the soil for great plant growth. This will enable you to use this skill at home, locally, or even globally.
What Is The Purpose?
- To teach students, volunteers, and families how to use these skills regardless of where they live.
- To apply the skills local and global to help further the Great Commission.
- To link with other ministries globally.
- To help provide food for the families staying at Siloam Missionary Homes.
