- Well I composed a message and while looking up a website it
disappeared...please forgive if this appears twice.
This is a good question, and I'm sure other parents are also interested
in summer options. Several Cowles kids attend Camp Shalom in the
summer, including Cora and Zeke. It is a Jewish day camp, so there are
some Jewish rituals and discussions of Israel, but it is open to
everyone. It is held in Waukee at Caspe Terrace. A bus starts at
Tifereth Israel Synagogue on Polk Blvd, with a stop at Valley West Mall
where they pick up additional campers en route to camp. I don't know
how cost compares to other programs, but they do have some financial
assistance. I'd be happy to answer your (or anyone else's) questions
if you'd like. Here's a link to the basic information:
Good luck! Mara Egherman
