Where Lifelong Journeys
Are Developed

Camp Shai offers a little something for EVERYONE for rising Kindergarten – 6th graders – from sports to art to theatre to STEM as well as our traditional day camp experience. In any of our camps you choose, we offer a variety of activities that are engaging and fun! It is our goal that every camper in our care – and their families and staff members – feel like they belong and are supported appropriately by our community.

Camp is the perfect environment to develop relationship skills with friends and adults that last far beyond the summer. What we’ve known to be true for years (and the data backs us up!) is that camp is the perfect space to continue learning and growing outside of the classroom. Studies by the American Camping Association report day camp campers display an improved ability to make and maintain friendships, increased confidence to try new activities, and greater skill development to hone the skills they are working so hard at. At Camp Shai, we pay a lot of attention to our programming so after their experience with us, campers leave with increased confidence and holding their head a little higher. Plus, we’ll create lots of opportunities to make new friends along the way!

"The counselors and all the Shai staff this summer have embraced my camper (rising Kindergartener) 100% as he is, and allowed him to flourish. At Camp Shai, he has made friends, has been articulate with his words to communicate how he’s feeling, and has even passed the swim test and conquered monkey bars. Thank you!"
