As part of our education, kids learn about being part of a collective and having shared responsibility with their Kvutza (age group). One of the ways we teach this is with a Kupa Meshutefet (shared account). If you are packing snacks for your camper, please have them be in a shareable format (i.e. a large bag of chips instead of a small one). The snacks are kept in one place, and the Kvutza decides how to share them together. The Kupa also has a monetary aspect, which is based on how the Kvutza decides (together with their counselor), examples include going out to ice cream or to a movie together. We recommend that each camper bring $20-$30 per session to their Kupa.

Please do not pack individual snacks/meals, specifically ramen that need to be prepared (cooked, heated up, etc). We have a wonderful kitchen staff that can accommodate even the pickiest eaters! If you have a child who is a very picky eater and you know what meals work for them, please don't hesitate to reach out.


We are a screen free camp! Any phones brought to camp will be taken and stored in a lockbox in our office until the last day. This is not an easy experience for campers who are used to having their phones, and we recommend you take time to talk with you camper and prepare them prior to camp. Here are ways you can stay in touch during summer camp:

  1. Snail Mail: Everyone loves getting hand written letters! You can send mail to 52 Lake Marie Rd, Liberty NY 12754. We recommend packing a few envelopes and stamps for your camper to be able to send messages back.
  2. Email: Email with your camper's name as the subject. We print out emails 2-3 times a week and give them out! Please only text, no images.
  3. Packages: We will go through packages together with your camper, to make sure there are no prohibited objects. You may send snacks, but please keep in mind that they will go into the Kupa, and will be shared with their age group. Please limit packages to once a session. 


Our 6th graders and under will be getting to call home once a week on Friday mornings to early afternoon. 7th graders and up don't have these set phone calls, however if there are any circumstances you feel like you would need to speak to your camper feel free to reach out to us!


Camp Shomria is in the process of increasing connectivity with local emergency responders to heighten their awareness of, and familiarity with the camp in the event of an emergency.

We have received some federal and state grant funding which has gone toward perimeter security enhancements such as a front gate, some fencing, stronger doors and windows have been added to several structures on the property. A public address system, as well as some video surveillance equipment have also been installed. The physical security upgrades are ongoing and will continue. We are reviewing our emergency plans and training. We will add emergency response training for staff, and revise our plans accordingly. We have also enlisted the help of the Community Security Initiative, a project of UJA Federation of NY, and the JCRC NY. They will provide threat assessment and intelligence analysis, training, and other services as necessary.

Camp Shomria will also develop a text notification system for families to provide situational awareness of any emergency situation confronting the camp or the area in real time.
