At CBB of Ottawa our goal is to offer a summer "home away from home" where children can learn about and take pride in their Jewish culture, community and heritage including the unbreakable bond with the State of Israel. It is a place where children can grow both individually and as a group. It is a place where important socializing skills are developed and where lifelong friendships are formed. It is a place where connection to the Jewish community can become part of a child's life forever. We are confident that a summer experience at Camp B'nai Brith of Ottawa will leave your child with a positive feeling of himself/herself, others and the surrounding environment.

OTHER CAMP INFO: Top 20 Reasons to Consider Camp Chikopi Despite your best efforts to keep your little hatchlings close to the nest, nothing can keep your son from his firm desire to flex his independence and attend a sleep-away summer camp. From sea to shining sea and sometimes, even across that sea...Camp Chikopi is the camp for boys. While you might not be able to fathom more than a night away from your son, you also know that a sleep-away camp is a rite of passage your son deserves and needs to experience, even if those weeks when he's gone will have you riddled with longing and anxiety until his safe return.

If you're a parent ready to let your son take the sleep-away-camp plunge, here are 20 reasons Camp Chikopi should be on your radar.

1. Chikopi is an amazing summer camp for boys that offers a number of activities from soccer, canoe tripping, and hiking to archery, cricket and sailing. If your son loves adventure and the outdoors, we are a terrific option.

2. Situated on quiet, clean Ahmic Lake, Chikopi is a place where boys can get away from technology and modern comforts and discover new friendships and interests in the great outdoors.

3. For something completely different, consider sending your son to our session 6 or 7, both of these sessions allows boys to live and canoe in a Provincial Park, preparing meals, performing chores and enjoying nature. Session 8 has a canoe trip on the local lakes and rivers.

4. This all-boys camp in Ontario is located in the Almaguin Highlands of Ontario. Boys enjoy water sports, ball sports, mountain biking, and other outdoor adventures at Chikopi.

5. Not your traditional camp, this program is all about sports and teams. Chikopi allows kids to choose and try out different activities.

Our Executive Director has 18 years experience in youth and children's as well as adventure and camping based ministries. He has a Bachelors of Arts (theology) and a Licentiate in Ministry from the University of Pretoria (South Africa) and the Cape Town Baptist Seminary respectively.

The Assistant Director has over 8 years experience in camping ministry and has received an Advanced Diploma in Ministry from Hillsong International Leadership College.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Our Ministry Development Program is a leadership program for teen between ages 15-18. It is help at the beginning of July and compliments our SERVEstaff program which is a volunteer and intern program run throughout the summer. July 6-11, 2014

WHAT IS MDT? MDT stands for Ministry Development Training. It is a three year program that builds into the lives of youth through Biblical Teaching, Leadership Training and focused Team Building exercises. These are all designed to challenge the participants in their thinking and motivation as well as their understanding of group dynamics and their place within that group. MDT focuses on the participants to KNOW God through times of personal devotion, solitude, and corporate worship times. The heart of this ministry is to see youth grow into fully committed followers of Jesus, full of His love and empowered by His Spirit.

WHO DOES MDT?

MDT is for high school age students that are serious about learning more about themselves, their strengths and even weaknesses. It is a camp unlike any other where friendships are forged and tested, and leadership skills are taught and put to the test. So if you want to grow deeper in you understanding of God, the Bible, yourself and even the world around you; and you know that you will be able to do what it takes to be part of the team, then MDT is for you. If you have just completed grade 9, 10, 11, or 12 – then this camp is for you! The first time you sign up, you will be in Level 1. The next year you come back you will be in Level 2, and the following year you will graduate from the program as a Level 3.

MDT is intentionally a youth development program, not a camp staff training program, so it is open to all high schoolers. However, if a student IS wanting to work at camp MDT is a requirement.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): August 3-8, 2014

This is a must for families and fills up fast so don’t delay in registering! This is a week where the staff spoils you and your family so that you can just spend time being family with no distractions. Skills and activities are orientated around the entire family. Some evening with be 'parents only', where babysitting is provided, and you can relax in the setting of camp.

Our speakers focus on you as a family and how to live in better community with one another. The best part of family camp? No cooking and no dishes!!

Things to do at family camp: swimming, downhill water-slide, 25 foot water trampoline, water skiing, wake-boarding, outdoor education, parents only coffee shop (to die for), wide games, craft making, late night pontoon boat cruises, tubing, night games, hanging out with friends and making new ones, encounter with God time, and not doing dishes.
Prices vary for family camp:

$195+GST for adults, $135 for 6-12 year olds, $60 for 4+5 year olds, and children 3 and under are free!

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: We offer retreats during the winter for church groups, school groups, pastors retreats, health regions and youth groups.
During the winter we have tons of fun on the outdoor skating rink, playing hockey or even curling. We also have ice fishing and snow carving as well as warm fires and even out door hot tubs for the especially brave.

OTHER CAMP INFO: A question that is at the root of our ministry is; Why? Why do we do it? Why do we come back year after year? Why do we believe in camping as a viable ministry in the life of the church and the denomination?

Why? The answer is really simple. We do it to be a place where children are cared for, where they are nourished and loved with the patience and tenderness of Jesus.

We are a place that has a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ - where the POWER of that gospel is evident, where it is spoken about, where it is seen and cherished.

The POWER to lift up the fallen and the hurt.

The POWER to heal the sick and the sick in spirit, to heal hearts that have been broken.

The POWER to restore dreams that have been shattered by life, or even death.

The POWER to change lives for the better, to transform people into the image of Jesus Christ.

The POWER to give hope to those who have no hope.
Because we want to be a place where adults and children are taught real Bible based skills for living a life of abundance, where children are taught to obey their parents, to respect their elders and to honor God because this is His order of design.

We aim to be a place where young people are shown how to honor God with everything they have. Where teenagers are given opportunities to shine. To share their love of God with children and their love of children with God. We are a place where young leaders are given responsibilities, where they are allowed to make mistakes and gently and lovingly shown the right way.

We are a place where the Spirit of God is almost tangible, where God’s presence can be felt and seen in the faces of all those who love him.

We are a place where families can come and be ministered to, as families. Where they can enjoy God’s creation, hear the Word of God and just be cared for.

We are a place where the Truth is taught about God with compassion, even when it is uncomfortable or inconvenient.

And lastly; The Quest is not simply about FUN, although fun is a bi-product. It is not simply about baby-sitting kids for a week or two in the summer. It is not about learning to ski, or wakeboard, or learning to shoot an arrow straight. It’s not simply about learning about plants and animals, water safety, camping canoeing and wall climbing or drama or gaining self confidence or anything else you will find at a great summer camp.

It is all these things and more, it is about drawing everyone who comes through our gates at least one step closer to Jesus Christ.

We believe in creating playful and inclusive trips in wild places that offer meaningful experiences for all participants.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: BACKGROUND
Camp Kodiak is an integrated, non-competitive, residential camp serving children & teens with and without LD, ADHD, high-functioning ASD. Campers come from all over North America and from abroad. The primary objectives of Camp Kodiak are to build confidence and self-esteem, to teach social skills, to foster independence and to provide an exciting and satisfying camp experience. This is achieved by providing a safe and nurturing environment, a mature, professional staff, a very low camper-to-staff ratio and a program that is designed to ensure success. Staff never miss the opportunity to recognize and celebrate these successes.

PROGRAM
Camp Kodiak programs for success! All sports and activities are taught in an organized, set-by-step fashion to ensure success. Cooperation rather that competition is emphasized. There are over 50 sports, crafts, cultural and educational activities so that every camper can find several activities at which they can excel.

Core Program: Many campers are hesitant to take on new challenges. In order to ensure that they get the most out of their camp experience Kodiak has developed a core program of 12 activities to which all cabin groups are scheduled. They include the Red Cross swimming program, water-skiing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, team sports, tennis, archery, arts & crafts, drama, high ropes and rock climbing. Campers are encouraged to participate in these activities with their cabin group.

Electives: There are several times each day when campers are able to choose their own activities and pursue personal interests independent of their cabin-mates. The choices include instruction in activities of their choosing and activities that are strictly recreational.

Academics: Monday to Friday, right after breakfast, everyone in camp has an hour of academic instruction. There are two components to the academic program, Option 1 and Option 2. Campers in Option 1 receive academic tutoring. Campers in Option 2 receive instruction in an educational activity such as music, drama, dance, gymnastics, pottery, photography, computers, etc.

STAFF
An important reason for the success of our program is our staff. Approximately one half of our counselors are trained, certified professionals from the fields of education, psychology, social work and recreation. Every cabin has at least three counselors. One or two are professionals. The remaining staff are university students, most of whom are working towards a carreer in one of the helping professions. The camper-to-staff ratio is 2-to-1. All of our staff undergo a rigorous training period before the campers arrive and all new counselors go through a police background check.

MEDICAL CARE
We have a doctor and three nurses on staff. They live on-site, administer all medication and are available 24 hours a day in case of emergency. The hospital in Parry Sound is 20 minutes away.

TRANSPORTATION
Transportation to camp is by highway coach from Toronto. Camp personnel are available to meet campers at Toronto International Airport and to ensure they get their flights home at the end of camp. There is no extra charge for this service.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: Camp Kodiak LITs range in age fro 16 to 18. Besides the regular camp activities, they attend workshops on ADHD, LD, ASD, team building, leadership skills and teaching methods. Then, under the supervision of our staff, they have the opportunity to work as assistant counselors with some of our younger campers. They also help organize and implement some of our evening and theme day activities.

LITs who are more suited to a vocational program act as waiters & waitresses for our younger campers. They also help out with some of our office routines and help run our camp store.

Each section has washroom facilities close by which are equipped with electricity, individual shower stalls and flush toilets.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Wabikon is dedicated to the traditional ideals of personal development, friendship and cooperation. It is the strong belief of the Bernardo family that the camp's cooperative philosophy can best be achieved by limiting the number of campers per session to create a smaller, more intimate environment where each camper can feel like a valued member of the Wabikon family. In addition to Wabikon's full range of daily activities, our program also includes various dramatic and theme based programs mixed in throughout the session. These programs may be afternoon, evening or all day programs and organized as cabin, section or all-camp events. They are a great way to break up the daily routine with some creative, age-appropriate fun and provide an excellent opportunity for teamwork and team play.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS:
Each summer, 16/17 year-old youth from around the world travel to Temagami for Camp Wabikon's excellent Counsellor-in-Training, or 'C.I.T.' Leadership program. The six week program is carefully planned and designed to lead its participants through an educational, challenging, exciting and fun adventure that will help them bridge the gap from Camper to Staff and help prepare them for their future, both within and outside of the camping world.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Through fun and friendships, our camp programs emphasize the development of self-esteem, physical and interpersonal skills, as well as spiritual values.

We take time every day to spend time learning about God, in chapel and cabin reflections. Our activities start with a Bible verse/challenge, which shows that the Bible is relevant in daily life.

Cabins consist of 7-10 campers of similar age, with a cabin leader and possibly a leader in training.

Main camp is for campers ages 9-13.

Junior campers ages 9-10 travel to each activity in cabin groups, and get to try most things once. Horseback riding they do for 1 hour, 4 days a week. We have a cabin leader in every cabin, and try to have a leader in training in most cabins for these weeks. The cabin leaders and LITs travel with their cabins and instruct activities.

Intermediate campers ages 11-13 get to choose 4 activities to do throughout the week. They get put into activities at random, and get to know campers and staff from other cabins. Cabin leaders and LITs get put into 3 activities that they either help with or teach, and get one off.

Conestoga campers ages 13-17 choose 3 activities to do throughout the week. They do not get to choose swimming, as they do this as a group. There is one wagon leader in each cabin, who will teach or help with 2-3 activities/day.

Xtreme campers do a lot of paintballing, as well as mountain biking and boarding. They do many activities as a group, as they are Dallas Valley's smallest camp.

Golf Camp, has an instructor who teaches technique, and helps campers improve on their skills. They will stay at Conestoga in the wagons and do skill training at camp, but are also taken to a local golf course to work on their game. *Campers must bring their own clubs*

Girls Getaway, is our newest addition for 2016. It is a girls only camp, in which girls get to be girls. They will try camp activities, but also have time to relax. Many different skills will be brought to this camp, that won't be available at our other camps.

Western Riding features an emphasis on western horsemanship and gymkana with training in horse management and advanced riding skills. You may request permission to bring your own horse. An overnight Trail Ride through the Boggy Creek Valley to the Colhoun Ranch in Flying Creek Valley is this camps highlight.

Barrel Racing campers learn how to properly pattern their horse on the barrels, horsemanship skills, bits and tack, and other camp skills. Campers will practice the pattern daily. They will also do drywork away from the barrel pattern in order to learn what their horses need to know to make training on the pattern easier for horse and rider. The use of different bits and proper saddle fitting will also be covered. At the end of the week there will be a Sask Barrel Racing Association 'barrel jackpot' held at the camp in which campers will have the option to compete. *Campers must bring their own horses for this camp. This camp is open to girls only.*

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: May long weekend is our staff training, in which all of our program staff must attend. Leaders in training will get to learn to teach skills/activities, find out what camp is all about, obtain job descriptions/requirements, and learn so much more.
