Admin History/Bio
From 1921 to 1978, the Zionist Organization of Canada acted as the official voice of Zionism in Canada. The largest of the ZOC regions was the Central Region consisting of Ontario. Virtually all organizations, congregations, societies and ideological groupings having a Jewish heritage in Ontario participated in the activities of the Central Region of ZOC.
The Central Region administration mirrored the administration at the national level. It functioned through an Executive, a Regional Council, and various volunteer committees. The Ontario Camps Association provided governance for the summer camps in Ontario co-sponsored by the Zionist Organization of Canada, Hadassah-Wizo and Canadian Young Judaea. Programmes such as the Zionist Book Club, art exhibitions, lunch clubs and other activities have served to promote the ideals of Zionism and foster a stronger sense of Jewish identity among Jews throughout Ontario.
Regional Plenary conferences were held between the National Plenary conventions. This sous-fonds includes records of the 16th to 28th Central Region Conferences held between 1946 and 1968. Representatives from Central Region also participated as delegates to National Conventions and internationally in the World Zionist Congress.
Scope and Content
The Central Region sous-fonds documents the activities of the Zionist Organization of Canada at the regional level. While the records cover the period between 1934 to 1978, the bulk of the records date from after 1960. As well as textual records and photographs, the sous-fonds includes films (and a video transfer of the films) of camp activities at Camp Solelim in 1974.
The sous-fonds is organized into 7 series: records of the Ontario Camps Association (1961-1978); auditor's reports prepared for the Central Region Treasury Board (1944-1970); records relating to the Zionist Book Club (1962-1978); Young Judaea (1955-1968); correspondence with community representatives (1965-1967); Central Region conferences (1946-1968); and, the Central Region administration's subject files (1952-1978).

Admin History/Bio
The Ontario Camps Association was established by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a regional administrative body reponsible for overseeing the operation of the ZOC-owned summer camps in Ontario. The Regional Executive Vice-President was in charge of supervising the Ontario Camps Association which also included the Ontario Zionist Region Committee on Camping. In addition to being charged with the general maintenence, upkeep, and operation of the Ontario camps, the Ontario Camps Association was also responsible for implementing the standards and guidelines set forth by the National Camps Association.
The Ontario Camps Association oversaw the operation of three camps in Ontario: Camp Shalom, Camp Solelim, and Camp Massad. Responsibility for Camp Biluim was shared by the Ontario Camps Association and the National Camps Association. Although it was located in the Ontario region, it was a leadership training institute and thus of national significance.
Scope and Content
The series is organized into 5 sub-series, containing records relating to the administrative functions of the Camps Association and the Ontario Zionist Region Committee on Camping (1965-1968), and to the summer camps under its governance: Camp Biluim (1963-1967); Camp Massad (1957-1970); Camp Shalom (1965-1978); and Camp Solelim (1965, 1974). The Camp Solelim sub-series also contains three Super 8 film reels depicting camp activities, and a videocassette transfer of these film reels created by the archives in 2003.

Admin History/Bio
Young Judaea is a national Zionist youth movement for Canadian youth founded in 1909 by members of the Herzl Zion Club. It is committed to instilling Jewish values, fostering a sense of Jewish identity and a lifelong commitment to Israel among Jewish Canadian youth. This is achieved through the regional administration and operation of summer camps and a leadership training institute, conventions, conferences and local chapter clubs.
In order to foster a closer connection to Israel, Canadian Young Judaea employs Shlichim from Israel who are posted to Jewish communities and to offices at the regional level. The Central Region operates 2 summer camps - Camp Solelim and Camp Shalom. It also participates in the operation of Camp Biluim, the national leadership training institute for Canadian Young Judaea.
Scope and Content
The series consists of records concerning the administration of summer camps, membership and programming, minutes of meetings, and correspondence.

Admin History/Bio
The bulk of the Central Region subject files series was created after 1950. The Central Region office relied on this series in order to organize their records that dealt with disperate themes. The files in this series documented internal issues as well as external groups and individuals. There are therefore files on internal budgetary matters as well as files documenting external groups that Central Region liaised with, such as FZOC and the Canadian Jewish Congress. In turn, this series also documented particular themes and events that were of interest to Central Region.
Scope and Content
The subject files include such materials as newsletters, correspondence and publications, publicity materials, information on club events, budgets and financial information.
Arrangement
The files in this series were arranged alphabetically in chronological order. While some organizations and themes were assigned a file, others were grouped together under a "miscellaneous" heading for each letter
