Camp Shalom Mission Statement

Camp Shalom strives to provide a safe, fun and positive environment that nurtures individual and community-based growth while enriching the lives of children from diverse Jewish backgrounds and affiliations.

Established in 1968 with the goal of bringing together Jewish kids in central Kentucky for four (4) weeks of fun through an enriching experience. 



If you’ve been to camp, you’re not surprised to hear about the benefits of summer camp. Experiencing life at camp yourself as a child, you know the profound positive effects that still matter to you as an adult, and you also know that you want something just as important for your own kids.

Each week will include arts and crafts, songs, activities and games incorporated around a
specific theme with an emphasis on Jewish values.
