Our Story

Camp B'nai Brith of Ottawa

Founded in 1935, it has been the summer home for thousands of Jewish children ranging in age from 7 to 16.

The original site for the camp was just outside Fitrzoy Harbour, Ontario. Two years later the camped moved to Dunrobin, Ontario. In 1946, the beautifully forested land along the scenic shores of the Ottawa River, near Quyon, Quebec and just 50 kilometres from Ottawa, became our new home.

(Excerpt from the “History of B’nai Brith in Eastern Canada” published in 1964.)

CBB had a great feeling of belonging and truly caring about giving your child a love for overnight camp! Thank you!

Camp B’nai Brith of Ottawa is a not for profit corporation, and a registered charity under Canadian law. The Camp Director works with a Board of Directors composed of a group of dedicated men and women who bring with them a wealth of experience from different walks of life.

Campers are grouped by grade and age into 6 units – Juniors, A’s, B’s, Seniors, Pathfinders and CITs (Counsellors in Training). Each unit is sufficiently small so that campers receive personalized attention from our highly trained and mature staff. Under the careful guidance of counsellors and specialty staff, campers have fun while building self-confidence and developing a sense of responsibility by doing things for themselves as well as for others.
