Camp Solelim was founded in 1965 by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a leadership camp for Canadian Jewsih youth between the ages of 14 and 15. The camp was located just outside of Sudbury, Ontario and was under the direct supervision of the Ontario Camps Association, who recieved their standards and guidelines from the National Camps Association. However, daily operation and staffing of the camp was provided by Canadian Young Judaea, which still operates the camp today.
