Camp Siloam sits on 178 acres on the western edge of the Ozark Mountains. The main part of the camp has been developed along a valley that has been carved out by Little Beaver Creek. The valley is well shaded in the summertime by more than 150 walnut trees. The highlands of the camp are undeveloped and are typical of an Ozark forest with a diversity of young deciduous and evergreen trees. Trails are being developed throughout the camp for hiking, biking and exploring.
