Philosophy and Mission
Our mission at Camp Biluim is to give our chanichim (campers) the opportunity to develop their leadership abilities, strengthen their relationship with Israel, and develop a stronger sense of their Jewish selves by participating in informal educational, recreational, and artistic activities that challenge them within a supportive, safe, and nurturing environment.
Camp Biluim is Canadian Young Judaea’s National Leadership Institute. Each summer, a new group of over 100 sixteen-year-old campers join us from all across Canada for a transformative summer focused on personal growth, leadership development, and an exploration of their Jewish identity and connection to Israel. It is our philosophy at Camp Biluim that everyone has the potential to become a great leader, and that each and every camper has something unique to bring to our “chevra” (society). Through a variety of both staff and camper-led programming, skill development activity periods, and “hadracha” (leadership) sessions, our goal is to ensure that every camper who takes part in Biluim has the proper skills and feels empowered to become a leader within their respective communities, while creating friendships that will last a lifetime.
