Camp Shalom

Camp Shalom is a two-week day camp for pre-school and elementary age campers at Congregation Beth Shalom of The Woodlands. It takes place the first two weeks of summer vacation from 9 am – 3 pm.

Madrichim (counselors) in grades seven and above led the younger children in a variety of activities that included daily circle time with Rabbi Berger who leads Hebrew songs and prayers. Learning experiences continued with visits from firefighters, a nurse, and an animal trainer, among others. Children enjoyed Israeli cooking, GaGa (Israeli-style dodge ball), jewelry making, music, drama, sports, nature exploration, arts and crafts, creative movement, movie night, story time, parachute games, creative movement, and challah baking. Campers spent afternoons swimming at a pool located in Shadowbend Park, which borders the synagogue.

 

 

I enjoy spending every day with the children and the teens who show remarkable leadership and initiative in making this camp their own.

- Rabbi Matthew Berger
