Senior High Camps

Senior High Camps

Camp Shalom has several programs for high school campers, each providing them a degree of freedom and responsibility appropriate for their age. Senior high campers still have the opportunity to schedule their favorite camp activities, but they will also go on new adventures. Most importantly, senior high campers will dive deep into their faith with our college-age summer staff.

NOMADS!

Entering grades: 9-12
Cost: $495
Nomads is a week-long program for campers entering grades 9-12 who want to experience camp like never before! Campers sleep in tents, which they will pitch in a variety of locations around Camp Shalom. Nomads cook their own breakfast and dinner, joining the Outpost for lunch and evening worship. Nomads still participate in some of their favorite camp activities, including high ropes, but they will also travel offsite for a “lazy river” day, where they will rent tubes in Monticello, IA and float down the Maquoketa River. Nomads have greater freedom and responsibility than our younger campers; they will operate on their own schedule, spend time in the woods, and learn how to camp the classic way!

Check-in is Sunday between 2-4 pm, check-out is Friday, TBD

2021 Nomads Dates:

June 20-25, June 27-July 2, July 18-23
