A typical camp day could include arts and crafts, music and movement, yoga, swimming or park visits, field trips or a special guest, games and more!
Activities are geared to encourage unity, fun, and learning. Woven throughout the day, universal values are incorporated into activities through the lens of Jewish traditions, ethics, and learning by focusing on three main Jewish principles: Torah (Jewish text); Avodah (work); and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness).
Most importantly, Camp Shalom offers our children an opportunity to be with other Jewish children, creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime
