The Village is the original cabin community at Camp Shalom. For decades young people have been introduced to outdoor ministry in this beautiful, peaceful setting. Campers in the Village have access to a shower house facility and eat at the Program Center. While each cabin is its own small community, cabins are close enough to each other to form a larger community.

There are three different camp options for young campers in the Village at Camp Shalom!
