Camp Shalom Summer
How Camp Shalom Operates
At Camp Shalom, campers are divided by rising grade levels. Here is a brief description of the types of activities that each group might participate in. There will be a senior and junior counselor per group and a LIT for partial part of the day.
OFARIM (DEER) AND SOUSSIM (PONIES)
This group is for children entering Pre-K, Kindergarten.
These campers must be potty independent and nap free.
Ofarim participate in special age appropriate activities that are similar to the older groups but are tailored to fit their needs. We balance sports, nature, water games, music, arts & crafts and Jewish learning. Special consideration is given to these campers and their unique needs since most of our Ofarim campers are at camp for the first time.
Our campers entering 1st thru 4th grade have the full range of camp activities available to them. Tsofim participate in martial arts, music, art, and a full exploration of what Camp Shalom has to offer.
TSOFIM (THE SCOUTS)
Leadership In Training (LIT)
Our Leader-in-Training Program is designed to offer qualified young people an opportunity to prepare for positions as camp counselors or recreation leaders. Emphasis is placed upon developing leadership skills, sensitivity to children, and program skills.
The 3-week Leader-in-Training (LIT) Program is an intensive, hands-on training experience that gives teen campers valuable insight into the role of a camp counselor. Skills can also be applied in real life situations and assist with babysitting responsibilities.
LIT’s will develop their decision-making and problem-solving skills by assisting with daily activities and camper care.
Features of the LIT Program Include:
- Age Appropriate Programming
- First Aid Training
- Fun activities developed just for teens
