I am worried about my campers safety. How can I be sure he or she will be safe?

Camp Shalom is committed to making your loved one’s stay at camp as safe as possible. We have emergency procedures in place for situations like severe injuries, tornados, fires, or emergency situations. There are also two Health Care Coordinators on staff, and we have qualified NLS lifeguards at the pool and at the kayaking pond. We are one of the few summer camps who require staff to participate in a two-week staff training time. We have a local doctor whom we can call if our healthcare staff has any questions, and we are able to get same-day appointments if necessary. In emergencies we are a fifteen-minute drive away from the hospital.

We believe that providing your loved one with the best summer 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, whether that is at the pool, during free time, or at other activities like canoeing or the waterslide.

What exactly does the Camp teach?

Each year Camp Shalom has a different theme for the focus of its Bible studies and chaplains’ messages. This theme is different every year, but the overall and most important message is the same: that God created us, loves us, and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. We are saved by grace through faith, and we can have a personal relationship with God.
