Summer Shlichim

We are proud to welcome 2 shlichim (Israeli counselors) to be part of Camp Shalom this summer. Shlichim (Hebrew for emissary), pass a rigorous screening process, receive extra training, and arrive prepared to lead daily and specialized activities. If you would like to host one of our shlichim for one or more weeks during the summer, please contact the Camp Office. This is a unique opportunity to have your family learn more about other cultures.


We’re at camp but we are still learning! Each camper has the privilege to participate in TAG initiatives created by the JCCA Mandel Center for Jewish Education. TAG is an acronym for Torah (learning and living), Avodah (service and spirituality) and Gemilut Chassadim (acts of loving kindness), three encompassing values of Judaism taken from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of Our Fathers) that provide a firm foundation for the formation of one's Jewish identity and humanity. TAG initiatives add Jewish richness, beauty, quality and meaning to our camps through Jewish experiences and education.

Sabba (Cool in Hebrew)

We are proud to have Rabbi Hecht of Gardens Jewish Experience on staff to teach this specialty and lead Shabbat every week.
