About Camp SHook

Camp Shook is St. Louis’s premier Jewish preschool camp for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years. We also have full-time infant care available.

Your camper will have an amazing summer at our spacious facility located on the grounds of Congregation Temple Israel. Campers are grouped by age, with each group having a “home base” in one of our air-conditioned, themed classrooms. Campers also spend plenty of time outdoors. Outdoor activities include music, sports and games, nature studies, playground time, water play, and YMCA-certified swimming instruction in our onsite in-ground pool for children ages 3 and older. Our camp day also includes art, science, and plenty of free play.

All camp groups are staffed by certified teachers and an incredible group of teenage counselors who are carefully chosen based on their high energy and love of children.
