Jason McClanahan was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. He graduated from Meridian High in the early 90’s. He accepted the LORD early in life and enjoyed the privilege of growing up in a strong Christian home. As a kid, he attended Shiloh Bible Camp several years.
In 1994, God brought Julie to Boise State University and into Jason’s life. They were married three years later. Julie, also, attended Shiloh Bible Camp and looked forward to attending camp all year long. She served as a summer missionary at camp over the summers of her college years.
They have two kids, Kylie and Ty. When the kids were old enough to attend summer camp, Jason and Julie introduced them to Shiloh and started helping at camp again. Over the past years, they have helped in several different roles, including Cabin Leader, Cook, Night Watchman and Jason has been a member of the Executive Board at Shiloh. Now, they are talking the next step by Jason stepping in as the Office Manager.

Eric & Lexi Kreider
Eric and Lexi Kreider are thrilled to be serving in the role of Facilities Director at Shiloh Bible Camp as of February 2019. Born and raised in Indiana, both Eric and Lexi accepted the gift of salvation at a young age and have been walking through their own sanctification by the Father’s guidance since. Eric was homeschooled until 8th grade when he began public school and enjoyed playing football all during his high school years. He developed a love for nature and camping as his parents took him and his two sisters on adventures across the US. His dad spent many, many days teaching him the necessity of resourcefulness and the skills needed to be fix things when they broke or make things better when it was possible. Lexi grew up being constantly introduced to new ways to serve others; first, by her mom and then through service organizations as she continued through school. They both attended Trine University for college where they met on a campus ministry mission trip. Eric’s love for camp grew as he served time counseling at Springhill Camps. They each fell in love with the other’s heart for the Lord and passion for His people. Married in May of 2017, they started their married life in Eric’s hometown and were blessed with their first daughter, Quincy, in April 2018 and their second daughter, Rory, in June 2019. Eric’s desire to be at a camp full-time and Lexi’s desire to serve as a supporter, encourager, and homemaker made Shiloh a great fit. By God’s hand alone, they were able to move to camp this winter and are enjoying getting settled 2,000 miles from home, awaiting the birth of their third child this December!
