Prospective Families

Transportation to Camp

Instructions for those traveling 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 (at the minimum) the camper’s full first and last name. Camp Staff will be stationed at each location to assist with luggage and the boarding process. Campers will be accompanied by at least 1 staff member throughout each trip.
  • 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 “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.

Traveling To Camp By Car

ARRIVAL & CHECK-IN
  • On Sunday, June 11th and Sunday, July 9th, 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.
  • Families are led over to the Office Porch to “check-in” with Camp Leadership and receive name tags.
  • From there, counselors greet their campers’ families and take them through the rest of the Arrival Process which includes taking campers to the Health Center for “Vitals Check” before they head over to the cabins.
  • 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!
