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 three (3) 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.

  • New Leadership in Training Program

Each themed week will include arts and crafts, developed specifically by our Art Specialist.

Music will also be an important element of our daily camp life as children will explore new and familiar songs during our morning gatherings

At Camp Shalom we weave Judaism throughout the programming, offering children the opportunity to be with other Jewish children creating memories that will last a lifetime.


A typical camp day could include arts and crafts, music and movement, martial arts or yoga, swimming or park visits, field trips or a special guest, games and more!

Activities are geared to encourage unity, fun, and learning. Woven throughout the day, universal values are incorporated into activities through the lens of Jewish traditions, ethics, and learning by focusing on three main Jewish principles: Torah (Jewish text); Avodah (work); and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness).

Most importantly, Camp Shalom offers our children an opportunity to be with other Jewish children, creating memories and friendships that will last a lifetime
