Camp Hagshama was founded in 1948 by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a summer camp for children between the ages of 9 and 13. It was administered by the National Camps Association in conjunction with the regional committee, although, daily operations and staffing were provided by Canadian Young Judaea.
Camp Hagshama was located in Mont Tremblant, Quebec. The Camp merged with Camp Kinneret in 1976, after it began to experience financial problems.
