Intensive research has revealed the important role that camping plays in the educative process of a child, possibly as important as school. In the Jewish world, the role of a summer camp experience is amplified, as it is instrumental in establishing the stages of Jewish identity, especially for those children not receiving a formal Jewish education.
Camp B’nai Brith of Montreal, established in 1921, has remained loyal to its founding charter of providing a Jewish camping experience to the children of our community. Although the nature of camping has changed what has remained constant at Camp B’nai Brith of Montreal, are the principles of allowing children to develop self-esteem, build Jewish identity, foster friendships, gain independence, and create lifetimes worth of memories.

CBB is a residential Jewish community camp, which strives to provide children an enriched summer camp experience in the Laurentians, with an emphasis on Jewish education, Jewish community, superior skill-based programming, and leadership development.
