Grades 4 - 8

At Camp Shalom, we understand the distinct needs of families with older kids, and our focus is on providing an environment that supports their growth and independence. We aim to foster meaningful peer relationships while acknowledging and respecting the individual needs of each camper. The camp schedule is thoughtfully designed to offer a blend of traditional camp programming and personalized group activities, ensuring that your camper has a well-rounded experience. Each week, they can look forward to special event days, field trips, choice programs, and dress-up days!
