Camp Shalom: OPT's Summer Day Camp

OPT’s Summer Day Camp

Camp Shalom is a  high quality day camp program for children entering 1st through 6th grades.  It is a full day of camp five days per week.  Based on Judaic values and fun summer activities, Camp Shalom is all about inclusion and community. Campers have opportunities to participate in art projects, theatrical presentations and sport activities.  There are daily swim lessons with bus service to and from the pool.  There are fun field trips, engaging counselors and two snacks each day!

Questions regarding registration may be directed to Robin Arbetman at 708-386-3937 or



This year at Camp Shalom, we are offering an early pick up schedule. We think this will please the families with children in both Camp Shalom and GlasserPreschool Summer Camp.

You may choose a 1:30 pick up time Monday through Thursday. Friday is a full day, of camp with the field trip. And this choice does include a reduced weekly rate.
