Internship Program

Program Overview

Camp Glory Farm is a ministry of Siloam Missionary Homes.  Our goal is to provide a safe and therapeutic environment where families can come back together again.  With our focus in world missions, we desire to be an outreach for our community as well as helping third culture kids adjust and transition to US culture.

Camp Glory Farm’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 program 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, the workforce, or other ministry.

As an Intern, you will be 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.  As a support to Siloam, you will be involved in the day-to-day operations such as grounds maintenance, office work, farming, and group involvement. This allows you the opportunity to be exposed to several different sides of ministry.  You do not have to know how to do the different projects we have here on the farm and campus, only a willingness to learn.  Once trained, you will be responsible to assist in our farm demonstrations while helping to educate students about raising sheep from a Shepherd’s perspective.

Our internship, although rigorous and demanding, is an opportunity to give in service. This might be done through a variety of fulfilling tasks that range from easy to hard. These tasks could include pulling weeds, taking out the garbage, helping to shear sheep and alpacas, and a multitude of other jobs. Regardless of the task, this amazing opportunity can teach you life skills regardless of where you serve.  Due to the flexibility of our program, we are always accepting applications.  We hope that you will consider joining our team and apply for the internship program today!

Additional Information

Our internship program is an unpaid, full-time opportunity with a demanding schedule. Because we have a working farm, garden, clothing and food stores, grounds and home maintenance, interns and staff are asked to occasionally put in extra hours due to work teams, projects or special circumstances. Although this is an internship, we expect interns to be committed to seeing work completed in a timely manner.

As an intern, your housing and utilities are paid by Siloam Missionary Homes through tax-deductible donations given by individuals, churches, and others.  We ask that you actively help us in raising support in order to help towards the cost of housing and utilities. (Any personal items such as food, gas, insurance, etc, are the responsibility of the individual.)

It is our desire that you develop holistically. You will be expected to do physical labor, study and learn, and grow spiritually as an individual. You will be challenged to grow deeper in relationship with the Lord. This may be in the form of Bible studies, personal devotional time, journaling, weekly staff meetings, church, etc. Our goal is to equip and train you to serve local, but to reach global.

Siloam Missionary Homes offers Camp Glory Farm interns an opportunity to serve while gaining experience:

  1. Siloam maintains Camp Glory Farm. One purpose of our farm is for helping missionary children transition to living in the United States.  Other purposes are for teaching experiences, special events, financial stability and income, and food.
  2. Camp Glory Farm has yurts and a bathhouse that is set up for retreats, work teams, volunteers, camp, etc. This allows a cultural experience in a local setting.
  3. We give educational tours. Our tours are for all ages. Often we offer lunch as a part of the tour. This allows groups to see for themselves what we offer here at Camp Glory Farm and Siloam and gives them an opportunity to get involved.
  4. We are a non-profit ministry. Staff and interns work together to be the support team that is needed to carry out the mission that the Lord has placed on us. Siloam is supported by individuals, churches, tour groups, lunches and retreat groups.
  5. Siloam provides a Christian community experience. Interns have the opportunity to build relationships with missionary families from all over the world. We have missionary fellowships monthly as well as staff lunches twice each week. The responsibilities for these lunches may be rotated among interns and work time is allowed for these responsibilities. It is a great time to learn how to cook for a group, learn how to use items available on campus for cooking, as well as grow in experience.
  6. We also have a community garden. Our lasagna garden is primarily for those who live on the campus. (Currently unavailable)
