Activities at

Camp Rodef Shalom!

Arts and Crafts

We offer a wide range of arts and crafts projects for campers in grades Pre K through 5. Projects range from decorating clay pots and painting, to friendship bracelets and lanyards!

 

Music

We love music at Camp Rodef Shalom! Music can be found all over camp, whether it is learning a new lyrics, singing and dancing in the hallway, or raising a shoe while singing "Chariot."

 

Tzofim

Every year we have two teenage Tzofim (Israeli Scouts) join us for the summer.  They run their own specialty area during camp, playing Israeli games, teaching a few Hebrew words, and helping bring their Israeli culture all the way to Virginia! 

Pictured here are Yuval and Karin, our 2018 Tzofim, who are finishing up school and will be joining the Israeli Army in a few months!

Our 2019 Tzofim will be Noam and Shay! We know you will love getting to know them!

Drama

Improvisation, pun-offs, acting, and puppet shows are just of the few activities you might view in the drama room. Our creative drama staff lead many different games and fun experiences!

 

Sports

Sports play a vital part in our communal activity! Activities include, but are not limited to Gaga (Israeli dodgeball), soccer, hockey, dodgeball, frisbee, and obstacle courses, often with imaginative and unexpected variations!

 

Younger campers stay on our campus, and older campers use nearby ballfields as well. Our older campers get a longer time block for sports, which allows for more sophisticated activities.

 

Outdoor Adventure

Our outdoor adventure program helps campers explore the outdoors around Temple Rodef Shalom.  Our experienced staff teach campers about animals, plants, and nature all around!

 

Cooking

Over the summer, campers in grades 4-8 learn to make a variety of different and delicious recipes. In the past we have made pies, fruit kabobs, cookies, frittatas, and challah, all while learning about food and kitchen safety in a fun environment!

 

Swim Time

Our kindergarten through 3rd graders enjoy splashing in the water at Holmes Run Pool in Falls Church on Mondays and Thursdays.

Sprinkler Time

For our preschool campers, who don't go to the swimming pool, we offer supervised water time on our premises with baby pools, inflatable slides, sprinklers, and lots of squirt toys.

 

Mad Science

Campers love to experiment in a safe environment with fun and imaginative activities exploring concepts such as kinetic energy and magnetic energy, and trying new experiences like Magic Berries, which temporarily make sour things taste sweet!
