All counselors and staff must complete full background
checks in order to work at camp. All of our building doors are locked and people
must have an access pass to gain entry. In addition we have security
guards around campus to make sure that everyone is safe.
LOW STAFF TO CHILD RATIOS
Our staff to camper ratio is 1:7, which
is lower than many camps in the area. The low ratio allows counselors
to form relationships with the campers and better supervise the activities
of the day.
Each camp unit in grades K-6 swim twice a day with
instructional swim in the morning and free swim in the afternoon.
The only time they don’t swim is if they are on a field trip. Yeladim,
our preschool camp, has instructional swim three times a week. Lifeguards
are always on duty throughout the camp day.
Children can choose from over half a dozen specialty
camps including basketball, skateboarding, circus, fishing, Drama Rama, and Broadway.
This summer our campers can build and design a skateboard or perform Madagascar the Musical Jr. We’re thrilled to offer these new specialty camps!
BEFORE AND AFTER CARE
The camp day begins at 9am and ends at 4pm but
we understand that those hours don’t work for everyone so we open
our doors as early at 7:30am and close our doors as late as 6pm to
accommodate working schedules.
INCREDIBLE AND MEMORABLE SPECIAL EVENTS
Who says there is no gold at Camp Shalom? Camp
Shalom is known for their incredible special events days that include
carnivals, wacky water day, gold rush, lip sync contest, and more!
These are some of our most memorable days and the ones our campers
talk about year after year.
Every week campers come home with personalized
letters from their counselors highlighting each camper’s favorite
activities. Almost every day we send out emails that serve as reminders about
what’s going on that parents need to know about. Unit heads have email addresses to provide more direct contact and communication. A professional photographer takes pictures at all the activities and you’ll get access to those
pictures to share with family and friends.
