About Camp Solelim
Camp Solelim is a six-week Jewish leadership camp for 14 and 15 year old boys and girls. Its unique character stems from a program specifically designed to meet the needs and interests of this age group. Camp Solelim, a non-profit children’s summer camp, was established in 1965 as part of the Canadian Young Judaea Jewish youth movement. The camp is located on Clearwater Lake, approximately 12 km southwest of Sudbury in Northern Ontario and the year-round office is located in Toronto. Solelim’s mission is to provide campers with two incredibly fun and memorable summers within a pluralistic Jewish and Zionist environment. Our goals include: nurturing Jewish identity and values; fostering a sense of pride and knowledge in Israel; creating a singular sense of community where each camper is accepted and thrives; fostering independence and personal growth; and building leaders.
The Associate Director position is a seven-week summer commitment beginning the last week of June and continuing to the middle of August. There will also be minimal commitment during the camp off-season for staff interviews, meetings, trainings and special events.
