Jewish Camping

Camp Wahanowin has been proud to serve the Jewish community of Toronto and many major cities throughout the world since 1955.  Jewish values of kindness, tolerance and respect are fostered through our programs and in day-to-day camp life.  Our meaningful and supportive connection to Israel is fortified each summer by welcoming Israeli campers and staff.  We deliver a program that inspires Jewish children to be proud of their heritage.

Jewish Elements in Our Program:

  • Shabbat dinner and evening service focused on Jewish and humanistic values
  • Havdallah on Saturday evenings for interested campers (optional)
  • Kosher-style dining (kosher meat available upon request)
  • Motzi blessing prior to each meal
  • Judaica crafts are often incorporated at A&C, pottery and woodworking
  • Jewish agricultural/nature program
  • Guest speakers

Connection to Israel:

  • Israel theme day
  • Campers and staff from Israel
  • Shinshinim and Canada/Israel experience
  • IVOW campers (Israeli Victims of War)
  • Annual Wahanowin walk team for UJA Walk for Israel
