About Camp Massad


Who we are

Camp Massad is a family. Still loyal to our founding charter, we are a Hebrew-speaking, Jewish and Zionist summer camp for campers aged 7-17 tucked away in the majestic Laurentian mountains. Since 1947, Machane Massad has represented the distinctive brand of Montreal pluralism founded in modern Orthodox practice but welcoming to children from all Jewish backgrounds. Our focus on experiential Jewish programming, centred on our core values, encourages each camper to gain independence and explore personal development within a nurturing and respectful environment. We offer Jewish youth an opportunity to experience the joy, substance and meaning of living a Jewish daily life in a way that equips them to embrace Jewish practice as they take their place within their community.

our Mission

Our mission is to ensure that every camper enjoys a fun, safe, and nurturing summer through meaningful Jewish experiences rooted in a Shabbat observant and Zionist environment. Campers are embraced into our Massad family, all the while being enveloped by our רוח, and our מסורת מסד. Through our quality programs, our campers benefit from individualized attention, skill-development, and take pride in their accomplishments. In our inclusive community, campers and staff form lifelong friendships, and are inspired to live a Jewish life.
