For over 60 years, the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines, a non-profit organization, has been committed to quality Jewish summer experiences for each child through Engman Camp Shalom. Engman Camp Shalom is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Des Moines & the All-In-One Campaign. ECS is about building skills, confidence, making friends, memories, feeling safe, secure and happy, while growing and learning together.
The ECS day provides a progression of enriching and exciting programs that are purposefully designed for skill and social development. Our staff to camper ratio ensures success for each child. We maintain the best learning environment for all our campers. We provide quality programs where children experience personal and social growth while increasing individual skills through a variety of activities. Campers also learn to become cooperative and interactive with fellow campers, meet and associate with children of various backgrounds and faiths, and learn to accept responsibility for personal and group actions.
Summer will come alive for your camper through creative, energizing, and innovative experiences. We also have Schlicha (Israeli Counselor) that will help your camper experience Israel in Iowa! The camp community is nurturing, challenging and most of all FUN! Children make friendships that keep them coming back year after year to become CIT’s (Counselors In Training) and counselors.
Engman Camp Shalom knows how to make a child’s summer fun and exciting, something we are proud of. Camp Director Jeremy Schwartz & Administrator/Director Lyanna Lindgren have created a summer filled with exciting activities & programs that will leave your children wanting more!
