Leadership Team

The staff at Camp Shalom is the best around! There's no question that there is a direct correlation between the quality of our staff and the quality of the experience for the campers. Each staff member is highly screened by the Camp Director and must pass a background check prior to being hired. All staff members go through a week long intensive staff development, weekly staff meetings and staff evaluations throughout the summer. Senior counselors, unit heads, and specialists are professionals who have the experience and maturity to make camp enjoyable while keeping Camp Shalom both emotionally and physically safe.
