Greetings from Camp Solelim and welcome to the opening of our registration for the 2014 camping season. We look forward to another fabulous summer and are already preparing to ensure for the success of Camp Solelim 2014!
A LITTLE ABOUT CAMP SOLELIM
Camp Solelim is an affiliated member of Canadian Young Judaea. CYJ is Canada’s largest and most active Zionist Youth Movement in Canada. Camp Solelim is located just outside Sudbury in Ontario’s north. Camp Solelim has been enjoying successful camping seasons since 1965. Each year the site is improved to better accommodate our ever-growing camper population. Our camp philosophy is to ensure that each camper feels at home at Camp Solelim and they leave the summer with an enriched Jewish/Zionist experience.
Camp Solelim offers all the regular activities associated with summer camping, but it has a uniqueness that stems from the specifically designed program targeting the needs and interests of this age group. Campers are encouraged to participate in the functioning of the camp and derive a strong sense of responsibility through daily work sessions and camp projects (i.e. camper committees). Counselors and specialists from Canada and Israel complement this special concept. Camp Solelim also offers a wide variety of activities from water-skiing and tubing to football, basketball, and baseball and from social programs to informal Jewish and Zionist education. Everything is perfectly blended together to make up the special “Solelim Spirit”.
OUR CAMP DIRECTOR
This summer Risa Epstein will serve her eleventh consecutive season as the Director of Camp Solelim. Risa has been involved in summer camping and informal Jewish education for the past twenty years. Jen Levy will be accompanying Risa once again as Assistant Director.
