Camp Shalom has over 50 years of experience running summer camp programs for kids and adults who have special needs.

We have emergency procedures in place for situations like severe injuries, tornados, fires, or emergency situations. There is also a designated first aider on staff. We are one of the few summer camps that require staff to participate in a two-week staff training time. In emergencies, we are a short drive away from the hospital.

We believe that providing your loved one with the best day camp experience possible rests heavily on our having the best summer staff possible. Our staff members are hired based on their spiritual testimonies, demonstrated life experiences, current qualifications, and clear criminal records checks. Each year we take great pride in the quality of our summer camp staff. Campers are supervised at all times by a staff member.

Thank you for trusting us with your camper this summer! We know it takes a lot of trust to send your campers to camp and it is not a responsibility we take lightly. After a wildly successful summer last year, even through the thick of Covid, we are excited for an even better summer this year. We completed 2526 Covid screenings, operated in cohorts, did almost everything outside, and increased sanitation, and, as a result, we did not have a single case of Covid at camp or at our mobile locations!

Last year we were committed to offering summer camp in the safest but also the most fun way possible. This year, we will be taking the best of what we learned last year and making it even better for this summer. The Ontario Government has lifted all Covid-19 specific regulations from the day camp and overnight camp industry. We will continue to follow the guidelines of public health officials in collaboration with the Ontario Camping Association and meet whatever requirements are in place this summer.
