Register for Camp

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED

Summer 2022 Registration Opens in March

  • Wednesday, March 2 for returning campers, siblings of returning or former campers, and children of alumni
  • Thursday, March 3 for all campers

 

Please Note: It doesn’t matter what time of day you register, all applications received on a given day will be considered equal.

 

We currently plan to return to full capacity for both camps (254 campers per session at Camp Shalom, 105 campers per session for 6th-8th grades, and 30 per session for 9th grade at Noar-Bogrim). Although we are returning to the pre-2021 registration policy of registering for all sessions your family is interested in, we will still include a question on session flexibility. If we are over-capacity, we will first reach out to those who are flexible on which session they attend, and then move to a lottery system if needed (within priority categories). You will receive confirmation that your registration was received when you register, followed within two weeks by either confirmation of placement or a waitlist notice and refund.

 

UPDATE 3/7/22: There are a few spots still open for Camp Shalom Noar-Bogrim (6th-9th graders). Camp Shalom (K-5th graders) is currently full but accepting campers for the waitlist. Register to put your camper on the waitlistFor those who already registered, you should have received an email the week of 3/7 to let you know if your camper is confirmed or on a waitlist.

CAMP SHALOM REGISTRATION POLICIES & PROCEDURES
Please read below before continuing to register

 

Each session has a maximum enrollment. (Camp Shalom Noar-Bogrim has a minimum enrollment.) Should registration exceed enrollment capacity, the Camp Shalom Committee’s enrollment policy will be followed based on DATE of registration. The following criteria will be used to determine enrollment by session: 1) Returning campers; 2) Siblings of campers or former campers; 3) space availability in age-group; 4) A witnessed lottery. To ensure equitable treatment, registration is ONLINE ONLY (If you need accommodations or assistance please contact Sam Toso at shalomdirector@jewishmadison.org) or (608) 442-4062.

 

Camp Shalom is open to children entering kindergarten through 5th grade; Camp Shalom Noar-Bogrim is open to children entering 6th through 9th grade —regardless of color, gender, race, religion, ancestry, creed, sexual orientation, political persuasion, disability, or national origin.

 

Camp Shalom welcomes and strives to meet the needs of all campers. Campers with any disabilities/special needs may require more attention and supervision than our staff is able to provide on its own. We ask that families clearly indicate special needs on the Registration Form so that we may talk with parents directly. Failure to provide accurate information may result in our being unable to serve your child when camp begins. Ongoing 1:1 supervision and support cannot be provided by Camp Shalom staff. Please contact Camp Shalom administration upon registering if you are considering using an outside agency to support campers who are likely to require time away from their group or need 1:1 assistance during the camp day.

 

Registration must be accompanied by a $55 non-refundable registration fee per child per session. Campers will be accepted only for sessions for which this fee has been paid. The registration fees will not be refunded after registration confirmation.

 

All camp fees are due by April 15, 2022, or your child’s space will no longer be held.

 

Written requests for refunds of camp fees (not including the registration fee of $55 per session) will be honored only until April 15, 2022. Cancellations after April 15, 2022, will only be refunded (minus the $55 registration fee) if the opening is filled. Refunds will not be made for incomplete attendance.

 

Full and/or partial scholarships may be available. The completed scholarship application must be received by March 31, 2022. The scholarship application is online and to be filled out after completing registration. If you need a paper copy please contact Sam Toso at shalomdirector@jewishmadison.org or (608) 442-4062. Scholarship funds will be awarded and families notified by April 8, 2022. If applying for a scholarship, the $55 registration fee need not be submitted at this time. Enter the code SCHOLARSHIP at checkout if you are unable to pay the registration fees at the time of registration. If your camper's fees will be covered through the Children's Long Term Support Waiver program, please enter CLTS at checkout to waive the fee.

 

Camp Shalom provides transportation to and from the Goodman Campus ONLY from bus stops listed. Campers MUST get on and off the bus at the same stop each day. There is a $45 bus fee per family for each session; however, if families are signing up for three sessions, the third session fee is waived. We will update you on routes and timings as soon as possible following registration.

 

Families who are not using the bus service will be contacted about specific drop-off/pick-up times, which will be staggered around 9:00 am and 4:00 pm.

 

Prior to camp attendance, a physical examination, within the last 2 years by a licensed physician, is required. Forms are provided by Camp Shalom Forms with registration (or download now). All forms are due by June 1, 2022, or there will be a $50 penalty. Schedule your appointment at this time. Licensing regulations require that we receive a medical form for each child prior to the start of camp. No child will be allowed to attend until the form is received.

 

Camp Shalom reserves the right to suspend and/or expel any camper whose behavior is deemed unacceptable. To read Code of Conduct >
