Traditional Camp Shai

(Rising Kindergarten – Grade 5)
The classic summer camp experience! 

Each day at Camp Shai, campers experience the best we have to offer with a jam-packed day of activities like arts & crafts, sports, Teva (nature and science exploration), music, water games, swimming, and other fun group activities. In addition, campers will also enjoy Chugim (free choice activities). Each week, campers choose a Chugim, a camp favorite. Think goofy things like Harry Potter wand making, capture the flag, and more! Rishonim campers will have an alternate activity to give them a little down time during their busy days at camp. 


FIRST YEAR (Kindergarten)

Rishonim is designed to meet the needs of those children in transition from preschool to kindergarten. For most of these campers, it will be their first camp experience and we want to make sure they leave each day with more excitement than when they arrived! Camp Shai campers are gently introduced to all of the fun and engaging camp activities with a built-in recharge time each day. 


FRIENDS (Grade 1)

Back for another awesome summer, Chaverim is a chance to get back into the groove of the camp lifestyle and continue to build on friendships from previous summers! Chaverim campers’ days are filled with the traditional camp, swimming, and tons of other exciting activities. 


SCOUTS (Grade 2)

By this point in their camp careers, Tsofim campers know the drill of Camp Shai. Tsofim campers will have a blast with all of the traditional camp activities and Chugim (free choice activities!). 


Heroes (Grades 3 – 4)

Giborim campers get to experience the full magic of summer camp and spend their days creating art, playing sports, making music, and swimming


BUILDERS (Grades 5 – 6)

Bonim campers get the best of both traditional camp and off-site adventures! Our Builders will take part in many of the traditional Camp Shai favorites – swimming, art, sports, music, Teva – plus, exciting new field trip opportunities!

“I just wanted to tell you how much my camper (rising 2nd grader) is LOVING Camp Shai and thank you for running such an amazing program! You guys are doing a great job! The counselors are all super sweet - so happy and excited to greet the kids at the beginning of the day, and at drop off they are equally excited about seeing them the next day.”
