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.


Entering grades: 10-12
Cost: $485
Senior high week is a 6-day, 5-night event in the Village. Be ready for some fun as you take a trip to Union Park Camp in Dubuque to experience the 2-hour, 9 station zip-line tour through the woods! Senior high campers develop their own schedules, enjoy camp at their own pace, and get to go on new adventures they've never experienced before at Camp Shalom.

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 Thursday, TBD

2020 Nomads Dates:

July 5-9, July 19-23, and July 26-30

Volunteer Position
Prepare yourself to become a summer staff member by being a volunteer assistant counselor. You will spend two weeks living in a cabin with campers and learning the necessary skills to become a full-time summer staff in the future. If you don’t mind hard work and you find reward in helping others have a good time at camp, this is a great way to enjoy a two-week stay at Camp Shalom.
