Frequently Asked Questions About Camp Shalom

Q: Does Camp Shalom provide snacks?
A: Yes. Camp will provide one snack mid-morning and one snack for extended day campers. If your child has a food allergy, please be sure to list this in our medical forms. In the case of severe food allergies, please send your child with a snack that he/she can eat safely.

Q: Does Camp Shalom provide campers with lunch?

Q: Does Camp Shalom have a pool?
A: Sadly, no. We are currently renting the facility at Camp Shawano, a property owned and maintained by the Girl Scout Wilderness Council of Kentucky. This is not their main property. However, we have compensated for the lack of a pool with additional water games, small wading pools for the smaller children, and taking the all of the kids to a local pool at least twice per week, weather permitting.

A: Yes. We offer an early registration discount thru April 1, a 15% discount for UK employees, and a $10 sibling discount per session, per sibling. Discounts per child, per session are not to exceed $30. Contact Tamara with any additional questions.
