Engman Camp Shalom

At Engman Camp Shalom, we strive to provide a fun, engaging and safe environment for all campers. ECS is more than just fun and games. It’s a place where campers build new skills, gain confidence, make friends and lasting memories.


About Our Camp

We’re supported by the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines and accredited by the American Camp Association. We welcome children of all faiths who are entering K-8th grade. Learn more about us and our program.

Join us for a week of fun, March 16-20! ECS Spring Break Camp is a great time to hang out with old friends, and get excited about the summer. We will travel to Goldfish Swim School for daily swim lessons. We hope to have good weather so we can spend time outside, too. Click here to register. 


ECS Summer 2020: June 8 to Aug. 21

In 2020, Engman Camp Shalom will start the week of June 8 and end the week of August 21. Campers can sign up for one or more weeks throughout the summer – or even all eleven weeks. Camp runs Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. with before and after care available if needed. Explore what’s happening each week. 


How to Register

Camp registration will open Sunday, January 12. Now’s the perfect time to talk about camp with your child and mention it to a friend too! The online form makes it easy to pick out the weeks you’d like to register for and reserve space in our before or after care.
