The Outpost is where things really begin to take off!

Campers stay in tree-house cabins that are located in a secluded area of camp that offers the ultimate camp experience. Outpost campers are encouraged to begin creating their own activities and to explore their abilities in over-coming new and different challenges. Most importantly, the Outpost is where campers begin to see staff members as friends and role models.


Entering grades: 7-8
Cost: $450
Check-in: between 2-4 pm on Sunday / Check-out: 11:00 am on Friday
Campers will stay in the Outpost “treehouse” cabins and cook their own breakfast each morning in the pavilion. The Outpost I experience includes Camp Shalom’ s high ropes course and an epic caving adventure in the caverns and mud pits at Maquoketa State Park. Campers will participate in the week-long Outpost Challenge, a fun competition between cabin groups featuring the vaunted Iron Chef Breakfast event. Outpost campers enjoy a higher degree of autonomy and more “hang-out” time than Village campers.

Outpost II campers will still experience some of their Outpost I favorites, including the high ropes course and the Outpost Challenge, but they also travel off-site for a mid-week tent campout full of campfire food, games, and bonding time. Outpost II campers enjoy more independence than the rest of camp and are able to structure their weekly schedule to include as many or as few “traditional” Camp Shalom activities as they like.
