Summer Camp

Summer Camp



If you are looking for something fun for your child or family to do during the summer, you need to make time to attend summer camp at Camp Shalom. Not only will it be a great time, but you will also find a sense of peace as you take time for yourself, others, and your relationship with God.

When you pass through the entrance of Camp Shalom it’s as though you have entered a new world. The flatness of the prairie is lost in the twisting and turning of the camp entrance road. You will quickly find yourself surrounded by tall trees and rolling hills. It is a place of peace where the cares of the world melt away.

Our site includes woodland trails, high and low ropes challenge course initiatives, an archery range, canoeing, a soccer field, campfire circles, and more.

The staff are committed Christians who seek to serve and nurture faith in others. Certified in first aid and CPR, our staff complete an intensive 2-week training program.

Camp Shalom is fully accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA).
