Camp Katonim has not forgotten its unique history and still incorporates Jewish elements into its programming as exemplified in our specialty cooking programs. Campers are also invited to attend Oneg Shabbats hosted by the Balfour Beach Association.
Jewish values of acts of kindness, decency towards others and respect for people, the environment and the community are nurtured in daily life at Camp Katonim. Central to our philosophy is that no child should miss out on such a rewarding experience.
We have provided many opportunities for both campers and staff of varying needs and abilities to seamlessly integrate into our camp community. We have been honoured to welcome people with physical, social and cognitive needs into our camp family.
Each year, we provide families who are experiencing financial hardship subsidized rates so that their children can enjoy a wonderful camp experience. Within our means, we endeavour to provide the most exciting summer to as many as possible.
Camp Katonim has also partnered with third partner agencies such as the Melanoma Network of Canada, York Region Health, and Jewish Family and Child Services.
