About Yeledim

Yeledim is for campers who will be entering kindergarten in the fall.

 

Yeledim helps prepare children for the transition from preschool to kindergarten. Discover what it means to be a BIG KID at Camp Shalom. Our compassionate staff understand that this can be an exciting and challenging transition for some campers. The Yeledim day includes a designated time for transition and relaxation after lunch.
