Discover Your WOW at Camp Shalom!

While we always enjoy Camp Shalom favorites like late nights and sleepovers, theme days, field trips, and Shabbat celebrations, this year we have brand new specialty camps, an in-house aquatics team, and incredible special events. Check out just some of the ways our camp stands out from the rest!


All counselors and staff must complete full background checks in order to work at camp. All of our building doors are locked and people must have an access pass to gain entry. In addition we have security guards around campus to make sure that everyone is safe.


Our staff to camper ratio is 1:7, which is lower than many camps in the area. The low ratio allows counselors to form relationships with the campers and better supervise the activities of the day.


Each camp unit in grades K-5 swim twice a day with instructional swim in the morning and free swim in the afternoon. The only time they don’t swim is if they are on a field trip. Yeladim, our preschool camp, has instructional swim three times a week. Lifeguards are always on duty throughout the camp day.


Children can choose from over a dozen specialty camps including basketball, drobots, circus, art, cooking, and Broadway. This summer our campers can learn to fly a drone or perform in a musical. We’re thrilled to offer these new specialty camps!


The camp day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm but we understand that those hours don’t work for everyone so we open our doors as early at 7:30 am and close our doors as late as 6:00 pm to accommodate working schedules.


Hate packing lunch? No problem! Camp Shalom offers an optional catered lunch by Chef Corp. Buy lunch for your camper as little as one day a week or for the entire week!

Monday: grilled cheese
Tuesday: hot dog
Wednesday: baked chicken tenders
Thursday: mac and cheese
Friday: pizza and ice cream

All lunches include a fresh fruit or vegetable and a side dish, dessert and a bottle of water. Lunches are nut free but are produced in a facility that uses nuts, soy and dairy in recipes. Gluten free available.


Who says there is no gold at Camp Shalom? Camp Shalom is known for their incredible special events days that include carnivals, wacky water day, gold rush, lip sync contest, and more! These are some of our most memorable days and the ones our campers talk about year after year.


Every week campers come home with personalized letters from their counselors highlighting each camper’s favorite activities. Almost every day we send out emails that serve as reminders about what’s going on that parents need to know about. Unit heads have email addresses to provide more direct contact and communication. A professional photographer takes pictures at all the activities and you’ll get access to those pictures to share with family and friends.
