Camp Kadimah is the AJC’s overnight Jewish summer camp located on the shores of Lake William on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Every summer, Jewish youth ages 7-16 gather to experience unwavering friendships, Jewish values, strong Zionist ties, and an authentic down-to-earth attitude for life. 

Camp Kadimah is very popular, and therefore, it fills up very quickly! If you know anyone who’s thinking about registering their child for Summer 2020 at Camp Kadimah, please encourage them to do so immediately!
