A LITTLE ABOUT CAMP BILUIM CANADA
Canadian Young Judaea has been Canada’s largest and most vibrant Zionist youth movement since 1917. Camp Biluim Canada is Canadian Young Judaea’s national leadership camp for 16 year old boys and girls. Campers come from across the country to spend six exciting and enriching weeks at our beautiful site in the Laurentian Mountains region of Quebec. The campers and their hand-picked staff create a vibrant community in which they can explore their personal relationship to Zionism and Judaism and realize their full potential as the leaders of today and tomorrow.
Camp Biluim Canada’s program is unique as each summer is designed to meet the needs and interests of this specific age group. In addition to the usual recreational activities associated with summer camping, the camp is proud of its specially planned leadership development program that encourages a high level of camper participation and involvement. The program is complemented by counselors and specialists from Canada and Israel. Camp Biluim is also known for its high level of Jewish and Zionist programming. The staff delivers these programs in interesting, innovative and fun ways giving each camper the opportunity to strengthen his or her personal relationships with Israel and Judaism.
