Yeledim is for campers who will be entering kindergarten in the fall.
Yeledim helps prepare children from 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.
Camp Shalom has something new for summer 2020: camp tracks! Each week-long track focuses on a special theme or type of activity and is designed to help you discover more about the activities and interests you love the most. Follow the same track all summer long, and each week will bring unique activities and special guest instructors. Or choose a different track every week. It’s up to you!

Our outstanding aquatics facility and staff allows campers to enjoy and explore the water safely under close supervision of Red Cross Certified lifeguards.
Campers will be swim checked for safety and to ensure proper instruction.

- Campers who choose not to swim will spend time supervised in the shaded areas of the pool deck.
- Pack a swimsuit and towel every day.
