Campers swim every day they are onsite in the JCC’s heated pool. Each Yeledim camper has certified swim instruction two days a week, and recreational swim 3 days a week. Campers are closely monitored during swim times by camp staff and lifeguards. Certified lifeguards, assigned specifically to Camp Shalom, are on duty at all times and camp staff will be in the pool with campers during both recreation and lesson swim. Safety is our top priority at the pool.

Fees for each 2-week session of Yeledim are as follows:

  • Sessions 1, 3, and 4: Cost per 2-week session is $720 JCC members, $860 non-members.
  • Session 2: There is no camp on July 4, so pricing will be prorated for the week of July 2-6. Cost for one week of camp (7/2-7/6) is $313 for JCC members, and $369 for non-members. Cost for the entire session (Session 2 runs 6/25-7/6) is $648 for JCC members, and $774 for non-members.

Splitting up a session: If you wish, you can have your child attend only 1 week of a 2-week session. There is a $25 additional fee for splitting up a session. This fee can be waived at the discretion of the camp director.
