Every member of our fun, friendly and engaging staff is CPR and first-aid certified, has completed a fingerprint scan and LiveScan, and has completed a camp orientation and training session. Our counselor to camper ratio is 1:8, except in our preschool camps where the ratio in Camp Pashoshim is 1:4 and the ratio in Camp Katan cabins varies, following state licensing regulations for the different age groups (2, 3, and 4 year olds).
Children will be inspired by their heroes, our camp staff. Emphasis is placed on:
- Orientation and on-going training
- Targeting returning and new staff
Many of our staff members have been with Camp Shalom for multiple years, either as campers, counselors, or both.
- All staff are certified in CPR and First Aid
- Campers are constantly supervised
Security and Emergency procedures are in place and practiced
