The Dayton JCC – Camp Shalom Story

At Camp Shalom, we pride ourselves on tradition, values, friendship and fun! We continue to have the same solid foundation that has existed in the Dayton Community since the early 1930s. Our goal is to provide children with meaningful experiences rich in Judaic spirit. Children of diverse faiths and cultures as well as members and non-members of the Dayton Jewish Community Center are welcome. June 9th through July 25th, children entering first through seventh grade can sign up for Camp Shalom at the Boonshoft Center for Jewish Culture and Education, 525 Versailles Drive, Centerville. Campers will work together to build their Camp Shalom family through leadership, community service, social networking, and being active in the community. Activities include: swimming, arts and crafts, cooking, drama, sports, games, nature, community service and field trips all in a safe and nurturing environment. For more information on the specific weeks or questions, contact Yale Glinter, 937-401-1550 or campshalom@jfgd.net. We look forward to having your child join us at camp!

Why We Host Schlichim

"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

- Soberman Family, The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC

Connecting with Israel

“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.” - Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
