Here is a text drawn from Camp Kinneret- History:
” In 1942, the founders of Camp Kinneret envisioned a Jewish camp where kids of all family backgrounds would develop a profound commitment to their Jewish and Zionist identities while having fun and creating lasting friendships and memories. They also vowed to ensure that this experience was accessible to families of all financial backgrounds.The founders chose to affiliate with Canadian Young Judaea, which was and is still, Canada’s largest and most vibrant Zionist Youth Movement. In 1972, Camp Biluim, Canadian Young Judaea’s Leadership Development Institute for 16 year old campers from across Canada, moved from Perth Ontario to the Kinneret site in Mont Tremblant where both Kinneret and Biluim continue to operate as Camp Kinneret-Biluim.”
Camp Kinneret-Biluim began modestly with only a few dozen campers and now operates at capacity with over 250 campers per session – and there are wait lists! Some of our campers from back then are the parents – and grandparents – of our current campers! In the beginning, the site was simple with few buildings and activity areas yet now offers a wide variety of athletic areas, aquatics options, and activity spaces. Every year, the camp further develops the site with the support of alumni and current camper families.
