Jewish Life and Israel at Camp

At Camp Kinneret, we pride ourselves on providing campers with the chance to discover their own Jewish identity and connection to Israel through an inclusive and pluralistic approach.  Through daily programming and special events, we take every opportunity to infuse our camp with a celebration of Jewish traditions and Israeli culture.


A connection to Israel


As graduates of the Canadian Young Judaea camping system, nearly all of our staff have been to Israel in some capacity.  Our staff are passionate about Israel, and look forward to sharing their own Israel experiences with their campers.  From planned programs to informal conversations, our staff help to educate campers on everything from Israel’s delicious food and popular music to the current political situation.  As well, each year, we are proud to welcome one Israeli staff member (our shaliach) onto our staff team.
