SOAR: A camp for Adults with Disabilities

soar-adults-with-disabilities-page

Beginning in 2017, Camp Shalom will be offering the opportunity for adults with disabilities to “Soar” as they challenge themselves to maximize their potential.  There will a 6-day/5-night session available.

Several adjustments will be made for this camp session.  The staff-to-camper ratio will be much smaller and the number of activities each day will be reduced. Otherwise it will be camp as usual.  Campers will have the opportunity to experience new and exciting things and learn more about themselves.

Campers will sleep in cabins, go canoeing, climb a rock wall, do the zip-line, archery, and participate in many of the other activities that other campers do.

Most importantly, they will be accompanied by the incredible staff members at Camp Shalom who will keep them safe and make sure they have fun.
