CAMPS

WHY JCAMPS?

The JCamps experience is unlike any other that Central Texas has to offer. We welcome campers of all backgrounds and interests, and work hard to make sure there are ways for each camper to learn, grow and have a great time throughout the entire summer! We believe that campers from both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds alike can thrive within the cultural treasures that Judaism offers, and therefore base our philosophy on six points in order to mirror those of the Star of David.

HEALTH & SAFETY

The safety and health of our participants, families and staff is our number 1 priority. Shalom Austin will continue to follow our current high health and safety standards and protocols. We have been open since July 2020 and have proven our ability to provide a safe and fun place for our children. Our facility has been and will continuously be cleaned, disinfected and sanitized. Our staff has undergone extensive training on best practices in preventing the spread of COVID-19. We thank you in advance for your part in helping us keep our community as safe as possible.

HEAR FROM OUR FAMILIES!

JCamps is quite simply an extension of joyful activities Shalom Austin offers from the rest of the calendar year into the summer months. We know our kiddos are creating life-long friendships and wonderful memories while connecting to the community. It’s a healthy, safe and FUN summer – and we are even MORE excited to see all of the upgrades made this past year! We are thrilled our friends from all over the city – both Jewish and not! – join us at JCamps. Thank you to Jessica and the entire team for continuing to make magic happen. The Franklin Family

I love my friends at camp and singing songs. I like playing soccer and eating lunch. And I love Robyn [Burch] saying hi to me. JJ Frankin | Camper, 5 years old

Last summer I thought it would be fun for our girls to have some variety for camp so I signed them up for a gymnastics camp by my house every other session. BIG MISTAKE! Every morning that I dropped the girls off at gymnastics, they told me that they only wanted to go to JCamps next summer.
