Jewish Life at Camp

At our Jewish camp, Camp B’nai Brith we recognize that each individual camper and staff comes to camp from different backgrounds and with different degrees of Jewish education. Some of them are of different faiths, and at CBB we create a safe space where inclusion and Jewish values are top priority. Our aim is to instill Jewish values into everyday camp life and provide the campers with positive Jewish experiences.

CBB also has Israeli Shlichim (staff) throughout the summer and take part in the P2K Partnership, that brings 17 year old Israeli camper to experience a Canadian summer for several weeks with our SIT program.

Every Friday evening, campers and staff gather together dressed in white for a Kabbalat Shabbat service, Israeli dancing, and a special Shabbat dinner. Saturdays change the pace of the week with breakfast in each individual unit, special Shabbat-friendly programming, and camp-wide bonding time by the waterfront. Shabbat ends with our beautiful Havdallah service under the stars, some dancing, and a look forward at the week to come.

Jewish life is breathed into every day at camp. We sing Hamotzi before eating and end every meal with Birkat Hamazon (grace after meal). We also sing Hatikvah, Israel’s national anthem, at Flagpole every evening before entering the dining hall for dinner. Camp B’nai Brith is the ideal Jewish camp for children in the Quebec area.
