Grades K - 8

At Camp Shalom, we strive to provide an environment that fosters peer relationships, while still considering the needs of the individual camper. Our K-8th grade program allows campers to participate in a camp schedule that offers a mixture of traditional camp programming and individualized group time. Each week of camp features a dress-up day and a fun-filled special event like Wacky Water Day, Carnival Day, exciting shows and more.

New Unit! Grades 6 - 8

We couldn’t be more excited for our new unit at Camp Shalom! You asked and we answered … a summer program created specifically with middle schoolers in mind. Campers will enjoy 4 days a week on campus with weekly choice programs. Then, each Thursday, they will travel to cool spots around South Florida! Throughout the summer, they will engage in team building activities and make new lifelong camp friendships. Our middle school campers will also participate in community service projects throughout the summer to teach the value of giving back to the community.

This unique summer program includes:

  • 4 days at camp per week with weekly choice programs
  • Opportunities for community service throughout the summer
