Located in the woods along the scenic Farmington River, Camp Shalom provides your children with the authentic summer camp experience and memories that last a lifetime.
For over 40 years, Camp Shalom is what summer is all about. Each day at camp is filled with exciting activities and programs, including swimming, boating, kayaking, canoeing, waterskiing, fishing, sports, arts & crafts, hiking and more.
OPEN TO EVERYONE!
Friendships made at camp are like no other. Our campers become a part of a summer family, forging some of the closest friendships of their lives, where memories are made and cherished for a lifetime. It just might be the best part of summer camp!
At Camp Shalom we…
• Inspire the potential in every child
• Foster a love of adventure
• Demonstrate universal values
• Support our staff
• Facilitate personal growth
• Provide lifelong memories, built on tradition
Our qualified staff are trained to encourage children to reach their individual potential. Their talent, love, leadership, and devotion are the heart and soul of camp.
Our staff is a combination of full-time JCC leadership professionals, teachers, college and graduate students, and high school seniors and juniors. They bring with them the skills needed to guide campers and instill in them confidence and character development needed to one day become counselors themselves, utilizing these life lessons in the future.
Our counselors and specialists help to develop a sense of confidence, no matter how big or small campers’ achievements are. We provide the opportunities to practice and master skills, and are always there to boost spirits, using encouraging words and actions for their efforts.
Your child will be in a group with excellent camper/staff ratios. No matter the age, we emphasize the group experience for children to:
• Become more confident and increase their self-esteem
• Develop increased social skills
• Foster independence while strengthening their leadership qualities
• Be adventurous and try new things
