What is Taste of Camp?
Taste of Camp is a caring and inclusive community at Temple Shalom geared towards empowering and validating youth in grades K-5th. This Jr Youth Group allows children in grades K-5 to make new friends, learn new skills, grow their Jewish identity, and connect with dedicated counselors and role models. Taste of Camp is flexible enough for busy families (come only on the weeks that work for you!) and varied enough to fit the needs of every camper. Our programming focuses on building and maintaining the quirky and close-knit relationships that blossom within the care-free and fun atmosphere of camp!
