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.


Update Regarding Camp for Summer 2020

Shalom Families, 

We are excited to welcome campers back to camp! Each week, we are working with families who have already registered their child to confirm their attendance. If you have not yet registered your child and would like to, please visit the registration page. We are allowing a limited amount of campers at Caspe during this time, so please be sure to register in order to secure a spot. 

Camp will be held Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-2p.m. and all activities will take place outside. At this time, we are not offering transportation or before/after care. Lunch is included in every registration. If you prefer to send a lunch with your child, please make sure it is all disposable. We will continue to have water play, sports and other activities that are fun, safe and encourage social distancing. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. 

Best, 
Anna Zavell, ECS Director
