Admin History/Bio
Camp Biluim was founded in 1961 under the auspices of the Zionist Organization of Canada as a national leadership training institute for Canadian youth. Originally located in Huntsville Ontario, the camp moved to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, in 1976, where it shared its land and facilities with Camp Kinneret, another ZOC-owned summer camp. The purpose of the camp was to provide practical and transferable leadership training to slightly older Canadian Jewish youths, most of whom were members of Young Judaea. Many Camp Biluim graduates later returned to ZOC summer camps as counsellors or found senior administrative positions in Canadian Young Judaea.
Camp Biluim was administered by the National Camps Association in conjunction with the regional committee, although daily operation and staffing of the summer camp was provided by Canadian Young Judaea. The camp still exists today under the full administrative operation of Canadian Young Judaea.
Scope and Content
The sub-series consists of files created between 1968 and 1971. These files include Camp Biluim Committee meeting minutes and reports, executive correspondence, financial records, staffing records, press and publicity records and several photographs of the camp's waterfront.

Camp Hatikvah was founded in 1956 by the Zionist Organization of Canada as a summer camp for Jewish youth between the ages of 9 and 13. Located in Oyama, British Columbia, Camp Hatikvah served as the only Zionist camp for the Western region of Canada. Most of the campers came from British Columbia and Alberta.
Camp Hatikvah was administered by the National Camps Association in conjunction with the regional committee, although, daily operation and staffing was provided by Canadian Young Judaea. The Zionist Organization of Canada ended operation of the camp in the late 1970s due to financial instability and an emboiled legal battle with the Vancouver Jewish community over ownership. In 1979, ZOC transfered the land title to the Vancouver community's Camp Hatikvah Foundation, which has been in charge of operating the camp ever since.
Scope and Content
The sub-series consists of files created between 1963 and 1979. These files include: financial records, Hatikvah Committee meeting minutes, reports and correspondence, staffing and administration records, camp director reports, executive correspondence, programming, press and publicity, legal records, and photographs of the camp.
