Moms’ and Women’s Retreats
The Mom’s retreat was a fantastic weekend. The entire program was extremely well organized and well executed. It was just like when I went to camp as a kid, but designed just for Jewish moms. I enjoyed the Shabbat meals, singing camp songs, Havdallah, not to mention the outdoor activities like hiking and horseback riding. The get-to-know-you events were well planned to allow the new ladies to mix and mingle with the long-timers. The spa afternoon was pretty great, too!

One of our most popular adult programs is our Women’s Retreat.
It’s an opportunity for women to spend the weekend relaxing outdoors at the Shalom Institute campus.
Participants share with other women the joys and challenges of motherhood and learn from inspirational speakers and enlightening workshops. Activities include yoga, ropes course, Jewish nature crafts, hikes and nature walks, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures.
Adult Color Wars
What is Adult Color Wars?
Adult Color Wars™ is a fundraising event that provides adults the chance to recapture their youth in a 24 hour adventure held at Camp JCA Shalom. We bring adults of all ages together to get away from everyday life and play. From the overnight at camp, complete with s’mores, campfires and scavenger hunts; to the main event on Sunday where everyone gets decked out in their teams colors (assigned before the event); the chance to participate in “kid” activities such as gaga, water balloon tosses, song/cheer competitions, capture the flag, relay races and more, is enjoyed by all. Our main goal (aside from a lot of fun), is to help raise help raise money for the Camp JCA Shalom scholarship fund. Camp helped to shape so many of our lives, and we want to do our part to make sure the next generation has the same opportunities available to them.
