camp kadimah summer camp

Camp Kadimah is Hamilton’s Favourite Jewish Day Camp.

We have a wide range of specialists both interviewed and invited to be our staff, all of whom come fully trained in both First Aid and CPR. Clean background checks and a passion for building a once in a lifetime experience for our campers is a MUST!

Each of our staff and specialists have their own unique skill set that help us make Kadmiah the jewel of our community.



With our base of Temple Anshe Sholom surrounded by some of Hamilton’s best trails, Camp Kadimah offers one of the strongest nature programs out there! Get some fresh air and experience the world around us as we go on a summer long journey of exploration and discovery!



Whether you are a seasoned pro, wanting to up your game or just try something new, we offer something for everyone! Even if you’re not the sporty type, we’ll find creative ways to get you moving! A priority for all of us is healthy bodies and healthy minds.



No experience is needed to participate in our wide offering of science programs, just a desire to learn! From making slime to conducting an array of kid-friendly experiments, the science program is sure to fuel inquisition and intrigue!


Arts & Crafts

Summer camp is all about learning who you are in a fun and stimulating environment. You might be the next Chagall, or simply someone who likes to muck in and create their own wild, wacky and wonderful piece that expresses a side of you nobody’s had the chance to get to know yet. Whatever your interest, self expression is a must! Eccentricities welcomed warmly!



Perhaps you’re an aspiring star, or just someone looking to try something a little different. Whatever the case may be, there is no limit to your creative potential! At Kadimah, we are all about becoming the best version of ourselves...but still, it’s always fun to act as someone else for a while!




You might be in water wings or already doing laps like a champ, experience is no issue at Camp Kadimah. Every week, we pay a visit to the Dalewood Recreation center to brush up on our aquatics and cool off in the summer heat! Fully supervised by trained professionals, what better way to spend a weekday morning?


Arguably the most important part of our Camp experience is our heritage. We explore our faith through a variety of fun themes that are fun and accessible for all ages! A completely accessible and intriguing program will inspire a deep sense of faith and community as we come together in celebration of summer!

My daughter Deja joined the camp for all of last summer. She was 10 at the time and we are not-Jewish. She had an amazing experience.
Everyone was friendly and fun. The trips were excellent. She fit in so naturally. I loved the fact that it is a mixture of inside and outside play throughout the day. Allowing the children a chance to cool down. What an amazing summer!
