At Camp Shalom, we strive to provide an environment that fosters peer relationships, while still considering the needs of the individual camper. Our K-6th grade program allows campers to participate in a camp schedule that offers a mixture of traditional camp programming and individualized activity choices. All campers are given a choice of a weekly chugim (electives) which allows them to custom-design their schedules for personal preferences. Each week of camp, features a fun filled special event day like the gold rush, water carnivals, video game day and more.
Campers sign up by the week so Camp Shalom fits into your busy summer schedule. Sign up for as little as 2 weeks or come the whole summer. The choice is yours!

Campers entering Kindergarten
An exciting time has come for these children as they begin kindergarten in the fall. It is also means their first year in Upper Camp has arrived. We help prepare these campers for kindergarten all summer long, focusing on friendship and fun and providing opportunities that parallel what they will experience in school. We encourage their independence and growth in a nurturing, warm environment!
Nitzan campers enjoy all of the great on-campus Upper Camp activities including, special entertainment weekly (we bring the entertainment to them), daily instructional swim and developmentally appropriate activities all while making friends. Im addition all Nitzan campers will enjoy one late night during the summer.
Campers entering 1st grade
Going into first grade is a big step at camp. Campers can customize part of their schedules with Chugim (electives) and head off campus for trips every other week! Trips are done to local venues such as to the WOW Factory and a water park.
Another exciting addition for these campers is the fantastic Camp Shalom late nights. Once during the summer campers stay late at camp and enjoy sports, arts and crafts, extra swim time, dinner and additional camp fun and once during the summer the K'tanim campers will have an overnight at the JCC and one late night.
Campers entering 2nd & 3rd grade
Our on campus fun is complimented by once a week exciting field trips. Lion Country Safari, the Wow Factory, and the Water Park are just a few of the field trips that our Kesher campers enjoy during the summer. In addition campers customize part of their schedules with Chugim (electives) allowing them to focus on what interests them.
Campers look forward to one late night at the JCC extending our camp day fun well into the evening. They also enjoy 2 overnights at the JCC, creating one big sleepover PJ party!
Campers entering 4th-6th grade
Kochavim is the perfect bridge from traditional camp program to an introductory travel camp experience. Campers spend 3 days a week onsite at our day camp and 2 days a week on incredible day trips like Funky Fish at the beach, catching a baseball game at the Miami Marlins Park or bouncing around at Off the Wall (just to name a few). Kochavim gives campers the opportunity to design their own camp experience through chugim (electives) weekly.
Campers will have one sleepover at the JCC and a 2 day one night travel adventure to theme parks in Orlando.
