Family Camps & Fun Days

  Shalom Institute is proud to offer diverse, fun, and educational programs
for the entire family!

Family Camps
At Family Camp and Retreat weekends, families enjoy Shabbat and Havdalah services, arts and crafts, song sessions, ropes course, visits to our animal center, nature walks, pioneer living, swimming, sports, a talent show, and being together in the beautiful natural setting of Shalom Institute.  

Parents are housed in cabins or dormitory lodging with other parents or can have a private room in our Emma Stern 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.
