Camp Shalom Summer & Winter Camp


At Camp Shalom, we provide quality programs with low camper/staff ratios that are age-appropriate, fun, and safe.  Our camp is infused with a sense of simcha (joy), kehillah (community), ruach (spirit), and kef (fun).  Throughout all of our programs, we encourage growth and self-expression.
