East Meets West is an annual program held at Camp Hatikvah in beautiful British Columbia. Each year campers from the East Coast head out West to meet fellow chanichim that they will spend the summer with at Camp Biluim Canada. Participants can expect a weekend filled with activities, such as biking, hiking, canoeing, sports, Kabbalat Shabbat and amazing food!
Machane Choref is Canadian Young Judaea’s national leadership retreat. Every year we bring 45 chanichim from across Canada to attend this conference. The goal is to gain valuable leadership skills, and develop new friendships nationwide. Participants enjoy a fun weekend at a hotel north of Toronto.
Several of our Camp Directors will be participating in a professional development course over the course of the year, to further develop, and strengthen their programming at camp. The intention of the course is to learn new ways of programming and understand new forms of pedagogy.
