Our Locations & Purpose
Camp Glory Farm @ Siloam
Located on the main campus of Siloam Missionary Homes, this farm is primarily for the missionaries living on campus. The purpose of this farm is to allow *MKs a safe place in which they can adjust from overseas living into the American culture through the interaction of 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 aid in the adjustment process. Families have the opportunity to learn how to care for these animals, build or maintain the community garden, or just enjoy God’s creation. After an introductory class, we offer the opportunity to our families to have their own time together at the farm and interact with the animals. This allows the family to spend time together at their own convenience.
Camp Glory Farm @ Watson’s Place
Watson’s Place is a beautiful 10 acre farm dedicated to education, interaction, and application. Our goal is to provide opportunities for students and adults alike to come and learn about caring for Dorper Sheep, Nigerian Dwarf and Pygmy Goats, and Alpacas. As this farm develops, we plan to increase our areas of hands-on learning in a safe and family friendly atmosphere. This farm is currently in the beginning stages of reconstruction. We are upcycling our diminished barns into a better barn. Volunteer groups have helped in these beginning process including: removing old metal, nails, and wood from the old barn and organizing the materials into useable and unusable materials. Other volunteer groups have helped in fixing broken roof trusses, cleaning, and adding ceiling supports to the feed room. We can’t wait to get this location up and running!
From our Farm to “Ewe”
Spring semester of 2022 was the first beginning of this new field trip idea. We found that several schools (private, homeschool groups, public schools, etc) would love the opportunity to experience a bit of the farm and learn about small ruminants; however, they do not have the transportation for their students or enough time to travel all the way to our location in Snow Camp, NC. So, in order to better help this situation, we started a program that I call “Farm to School.” Students will have the opportunity to learn and interact from their own school location. The animals we bring are normally miniature goats, sheep, and alpacas. Depending on the time of the year, we may even have lambs and kids as well. This opportunity will allow learning on a new level. It is my goal to work with the teachers to make this the best experience possible.
We would also love to bring our animals to events, nursing homes, church activities, vacation Bible school, and more…

Kendric began as a summer intern in 2017. As the summer ended, she felt the Lord leading her to remain a while longer. After serving as in intern for 2 1/2 years, Kendric felt this was the place the Lord had for her to serve Him. Her dedication and hard work showed her passion to be a part of Camp Glory Farm and so she was brought on staff in January 2020. Her experiences here at Siloam have allowed her the opportunity for personal as well as spiritual growth. One area in which she has grown is in her desire to help the families by making the farm more accessible.
