NEW THIS YEAR

  • This year we are refocusing Camp Shalom as a uniquely Jewish day camp.  The camp day will be enjoyed through a Jewish lens.
  • Daily programs will include Jewish music, Hebrew vocabulary, tzedakah/mitzvah (charity or social justice) projects, theater with a Jewish twist, theme days and sports activities.
  • Campers will participate in weekly swim lessons at Foss Swim School for either two or three days per week and one open swim session with counselors at a different pool (not Foss) each week. Bus service to and from the pools is provided by Camp Shalom.
  • Special mitzvah projects will replace field trips.  Campers will work on long term projects which culminate with an on-site visit to the organization.
  • Camp Shalom’s world famous theatrical productions will continue this summer with plays featuring Jewish characters, Jewish music, Jewish themes and Jewish stories.
  • Campers bring lunches Monday through Thursday.  All lunches are refrigerated.  On Fridays we provide lunch.
  • Each camper receives a camp t-shirt.
  • Excellent (very low) counselor to camper ratio makes Camp Shalom fun and safe for everyone.
  • Daily visits to Field Center park at Mann School for outdoor games and activities.
  • Camp Shalom runs from July 1 through July 26. Monday through Friday, 9:00-4:00. No camp on July 4, tuition is pro-rated for week of July 4.
  • Drop campers off at 9:00am at Oak Park Temple, 1235 N. Harlem and pick campers up at Oak Park Temple at 4:00pm.
  • 7:45 early drop off is available.
