Transportation to Camp

For information on driving to camp by car: see below

Instructions for those departing to camp by bus
  • PLEASE BE PROMPT! Departure times are approximate… We suggest that you clear your schedule for a few hours surrounding your camper’s Camp Transportation Schedule. It’s better to wait than to be late! Campers must be accompanied by an adult and the adult should remain with their campers until the bus departs.
  • All luggage must be clearly labeled with the camper’s full first and last name and cabin color (which is provided by the end of May). Camp Staff will be stationed at each location to assist with luggage and the boarding process. Campers will be accompanied by at least 3 staff members throughout the trip. A picture along with the staff members names will be emailed out prior to departure day.
  • Families using the Boca Raton “Bus Stop”- upon arrival, please unload your child’s luggage at the designated location, park and proceed to “Check-In” with CAMP STAFF. After that, visit with fellow Shalom'ers and say your “good-byes” while the campers wait to board the bus.
  • Families using the West Palm Beach and Orlando “Bus Stop”- please park and wait at the ">Northbound entrance of the Turnpike Plaza.
  • Please make sure that your child has a bagged lunch with water & some extra snacks. Do not over-pack and keep in mind that we are a peanut/nut free camp, as many campers have known/unknown allergies.
  • We recognize that many campers will have cellular devices with them on the bus as well as other electronics. Please note that all cellular devices will be collected immediately upon arrival. We urge you not to send them at all.

Traveling To Camp By Car

ARRIVAL & CHECK-IN
  • On Sunday, June 17th and Sunday, July 15th, at 2 PM, the Gates to 168 Camp Shalom Trail will Open!
  • As space becomes available, each vehicle is waved through the gate and greeted by a Camp Shalom Staff Member.
  • Once greeted, each vehicle is guided to the “Check-In” Area (marked by cones).
  • To avoid over-crowding the “Check-In” area, 5 vehicles (approx.) are let in at a time (followed by a brief hold).
  • At Check-In, vehicles are met by Camp Staff, who assist with unloading & delivering luggage to campers’ cabins.
  • From there, families are taken to the Health Center for “Vitals Check”.
  • Following the Health Center check families are led over to the Office Porch to “check-in” with Camp Leadership and receive name tags while counselors greet their new campers.
  • All Check-In Steps must be completed prior to entering the cabin area. Veering from the steps will ultimately prolong the entire process for everyone!
CLOSING DAY
  • Closing Days of each session are much more laid back. The overall process of picking up your child(ren) from camp is also much quicker. 
  • The Entrance Gate on Camp Shalom Trail will be opened at 11am and will be closed at 12:30pm.
