Camp Shalom (Lexington) | Find Your Summer

Camp Shalom (Lexington)

Camp Shalom is the only Jewish summer day camp in the central Kentucky area. Our non-denominational program provides a safe and comfortable setting for children from all backgrounds and streams of Judaism to come together and learn about Jewish culture, history, and identity regardless of their individual background or level of observance. Camp is open to children of all religions. Activities are geared to encourage unity, fun, and learning. Each day is filled with arts and crafts, sports, music, water play, storytelling, games, teva (nature), and other special projects. Judaism is woven throughout the programming which, among other Jewish ideas and ethics, focuses on three main ideas: Torah (Jewish text); Avodah (work); and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness).
