About Our Summer Day Camp:
The award-winning and National Inclusion Project accredited Camp Shelanu is one of the Triangle’s most beloved day camps. With camps that allow campers to experiment with visual and performing arts, teamwork and leadership in sports, wildlife and nature conservation, STEM, and more, there’s something for every one. Also unique to Camp Shelanu is that our campers get to swim every day, with swim lessons for campers who need them included in your camp tuition! Campers of all ages splash in our two outdoor pools, zip down one of the tallest water slides in the Triangle, team build on a ropes course, go on field trips, dance, play, and foster old and new friendships both in the warm summer sun (with sunscreen, of course!) and inside the AC-cooled Levin JCC and Lerner Community Day School buildings, all with expertly trained camp counselors and a 9:1 counselor to camper ratio!
Our camp is unlike any other. While Camp Shelanu’s curricula is based on Jewish values such as giving, kindness, welcoming newcomers, and repairing the world, and includes learning about Jewish culture and traditions, there is no religious instruction or discussion of theology at camp. We welcome everyone with joy, inclusive of all faiths, identities, and backgrounds, and are proud of our diverse community. We offer need-based scholarships, a comprehensive Inclusion Program for campers with disabilities, and exceptionally trained staff and counselors. At Camp Shelanu, campers 5 years old and up experience their best summers ever, until the next summer at Shelanu, of course. To learn more about our camp, click here.
