Camp Schedule

At Engman Camp Shalom, we create spirit! Our camp schedule runs Monday through Friday each week, and your child will enjoy full days of activities from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Campers are welcome to come for the whole season, a single week, or multiple weeks throughout the summer. For extra flexibility, we also offer before and after care as well as transportation services.
