The Atlantic Jewish Council

It’s already time to start thinking about Camp Kadimah 2019!

Camp Kadimah is our overnight Jewish summer camp located on the shores of Lake William on the South Shore of Nova Scotia about an hour away from Halifax. Every summer, over 300 Jewish youth ages 7-16 from Atlantic Canada, Ontario, the United States, and Israel gather for a multi-week experience featuring Judaism and Israeli culture along with sports, arts & crafts, and other recreational activities.

Summer 2019 registration opens online on Sunday, July 29th, 2018 and closes on Friday, August 3rd, 2018. We expect to fill very quickly, so we strongly encourage all families interested in Kadimah 2019 to register online during this week.

Want to learn more? Here are some opportunities:

  • Reach out to Camp Director Sarah Atkins by phone (1-866-523-4624) or email (
  • Arrange a house visit in your own home with a Camp Kadimah ambassador by emailing Naomi at
