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.
