Kadima 2015

Kadima is for campers who will be entering 3rd-6th grades in the fall.

Experience the coolest activities and make this a summer you'll never forget!

Themed Activities

We have plenty of extraordinary special events each session.  Each Thursday will be a dress-up day, for campers and staff to dress up in wacky costumes to match the weekly theme and celebrate a day of fun-filled activities such as carnival games, challenge activities, water games in the pool, slip n' slides, and more.

We have a different theme each week:

  • Session 1: Shalomstock  |  Ooey Gooey
  • Session 2: Globe Trotters  |  Pirate
  • Session 3: Maccabi Sports  |  Wet & Wild
  • Session 4: Welcome to the Jungle  |  Adventureland

Field Trips

Kadima campers will go on one field trip each week (two field trips each session).  Field trips are also based on the weekly theme and offer campers new experiences away from the regular camp setting.

In addition to weekly field trips, Kadima campers will visit Vasona Lake Park for nature hikes, creek exploration, and scavenger hunts. 

The weekly field trip schedule is coming soon! All field trips are on Wednesdays.


Each day campers will have the opportunity to experience unique enrichment activities led by our on- staff specialists.  Camp Shalom is proud to offer specialist-led programming in Science and Nature (Teva Time), Arts and Culture, and Sports. Specialists are trained in their field of expertise and offer campers the chance to learn a new skill through experiential, hands-on learning techniques.


Campers swim for one hour each day they are onsite.  Each 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.
