Overview

The only Reform Jewish camp in CanadaSince 1999, Camp George has provided campers a place to build lifelong friendships,explore Judaism, and have the time of their lives.

Since 1951, when the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) opened its first camp in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, Reform Jewish camping has been an integral part of the Reform Jewish experience in North America. For years without a camp at home, dozens of Canadian campers travelled each summer to one of the URJ’s eleven premier camping facilities throughout the United States. In 1999, a 15-year-old dream became a reality when the URJ opened its first and only Canadian camp – Camp George.  Since 1999 Camp George has served thousands of campers and has played a significant role in strengthening the Reform Jewish movement in Canada.  At Camp George, Jewish youth from all over Canada and the United States participate in a unique camping experience that blends the best of Reform camping with the historic traditions of Ontario camping. Within this community, participants forge life-long friendships and experience a truly transformative Jewish experience. Camp George offers campers, ranging in age from 7-16, opportunities to learn new skills, meet new friends, and develop their own Jewish identity. Camp offers a wide array of activities that focus on recreation, fun, cooperation and skill building. Our creative arts program, magnificent waterfront, state-of-the-art Ropes Challenge Course, and various athletic facilities serve as backdrops for teaching, creating, growing and exploring – allowing us to meet the needs of every camper. A summer at Camp George is a summer like none other!  Currently, there are 16 URJ camps throughout North America that serve more than 8000 campers each summer.
