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.
