Where is it?

Located about a half-hour from Ottawa, Camp B'Nai Brith is built on forested land along the shore of the Ottawa River. Amenities include a regulation-sized ball hockey rink; large, sandy beaches with canoes and a full range of water activities; an indoor gym; miniature golf course; and a host of other sports are available. The camp is kosher. Housing will be a mixture of single-gender bunkhouses and couple, single- and double-occupancy premium housing. Camping will also be available for those interested in bringing their own tents. Ottawa is a reasonable drive from New York City, Toronto, Cleveland and Boston, and an easy and affordable flying destination from major American cities. With the current exchange rate, this is an excellent time for Americans to visit Canada. Remember -- you will need a current passport (or enhanced drivers' license) to cross the border from the United States.

What is the Jewish Outdoor Escape?
The Mosaic's Jewish Outdoor Escape is held every year during the extended Labor Day Weekend. It gives Jewish outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world the opportunity to spend time with each other in a Jewish setting, and enjoy out-of-doors activities. We stay at a summer camp and the activities vary each year depending on the locale. Over 100 like-minded Jewish adventurers attend this event each year. The experience typically includes hiking, kayaking, biking, nature walks, arts & crafts, dancing, workshops, swimming, campfires, field games, photography, swimming, cultural events and some great surprises!
