We are excited to offer a variety of activities at Camp Shalom, including traditional camp favorites like archery, arts & crafts, hiking, and canoeing as well as a bevy of off-the-wall games of our own design, such as Bonkers and Escape from the Planet of the Apes. All our activities are designed to exhilarate, challenge, and reward everyone who chooses to participate.

We practice the "your challenge, your choice" philosophy at Camp Shalom. We encourage everyone to challenge themselves and participate to their level of comfort and ability, but we do not force anyone to join in.

None of our campers will get to do all the activities we offer in one week at Camp Shalom, but this is by design. Some activities require a certain level of fitness and resilience; our program also progresses so campers experience something new each time they return.

Our activities include:

  • High ropes challenge course (6th grade and up, except during family camp)
  • Low ropes challenge course
  • Archery
  • Canoeing
  • Arts & crafts
  • Caving (7th grade and up)
  • Several environmental education options that we simply call "Nature"
  • Gaga ball
  • Human Foosball
  • Hiking
  • Extreme hiking (the off-road version)
  • Cupcake Wars
  • Bible study
  • Worship
  • Daily devotions
  • Iron Chef breakfast
  • Iron Chef snack
  • Protect Your Counselor
  • Bonkers
  • Capture the Flag
  • Shalom Olympics
  • Gotham City
  • Staff Hunt
  • Escape from the Planet of the Apes
  • Monsters vs. Humans
  • Shalom Showcase (a talent show of sorts)
  • Dodgeball
  • And much, much more...

Let the spirit of adventure take you on a journey while you are at Camp Shalom.
