Shalom Institute is proud to offer diverse, fun, and educational programs
for the entire family!
At Family Camp and Retreat weekends, families enjoy Shabbat services, Havdalah services, arts and crafts, song sessions, ropes course, swimming, softball, a talent show, and being together in the beautiful natural setting of Shalom Institute. Our August mid-week family camp offers all the same activities as the weekends except for the Shabbat experience.
Parents are housed in cabins or dormitory lodging with other parents or can have a private room in our Emma Stern Weinberg Village for an additional charge. Children 6 and over stay in cabins with counselors. Children under 6 are housed with their parents and childcare is available for them during the day.
