Shiloh is open year-round to provide opportunities for events such as reunions, graduation parties, youth programs, church gatherings, weddings, retreats, etc.
We try to keep this opportunity as affordable as possible so
all are able to experience the peace of

Meet the Directors
Owen and Sabrina have been married 23 years and have five children - Elizabeth, Katherine, Abigail, James, and Emma - who are all graduated from high school and at the start of their own careers and college.
The Lord called Owen and Sabrina to Shiloh in the early summer of 2019 and they took over as directors later that fall. Prior to coming to Shiloh, Owen was a supervisor with Stickley Furniture in Manlius and Sabrina homeschooled their children all through graduation. Owen and Sabrina worship at the New Woodstock Community Church. Owen serves as an elder and Sabrina serves as a deaconess; she also helped in leading the worship team for many years.
Shiloh has been a part of their lives, going all the way back to the early 80's when Owen's grandmother brought him to what was at that time a private campground. He stayed in the three bedroom cottage. Years later, when looking for someplace inexpensive for the family to vacation, the Lord intervened through a friend who recommended Shiloh. Going there to preview the camp with his wife, Owen realized that this was where he came as a child - and his mother even found pictures of him there! Since then the Simiele family has spent almost every summer vacation at Shiloh!
Although unexpected, the opportunity to direct the campground is a welcome one! Owen and Sabrina's greatest hope during their time there, is that the Father be glorified, and the Name of Jesus Christ be lifted up and proclaimed!
