Union for Reform Judaism (URJ)
The Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) builds community at every level—from the way we collaborate with congregations, organizations, and individuals to how we make connections across North America to advance contemporary and inclusive Jewish life. Providing vision and voice to transform the way people connect to Judaism, we help congregations stay relevant and innovative, motivate more young Jews to embrace Jewish living, agitate for a more progressive society, and foster meaningful connections to Israel.

URJ Camp George
Since 1999 Camp George, the only Canadian Camp in the Reform Community, has served thousands of campers and has played a significant role in strengthening the Reform Jewish Community in Canada. At Camp George, Jewish youth from all over Canada and the United States participate in a unique camping experience that blends the best of Reform camping with the historic traditions of Ontario camping. Within this community, participants forge life-long friendships and experience a truly transformative Jewish experience. Camp George offers campers, ranging in age from 7-16, opportunities to learn new skills, meet new friends, and develop their own Jewish identity. Camp offers a wide array of activities that focus on recreation, fun, cooperation and skill-building. Our creative arts program, magnificent waterfront, state-of-the-art Ropes Challenge Course, and various athletic facilities serve as backdrops for teaching, creating, growing and exploring – allowing us to meet the needs of every camper. A summer at Camp George is a summer like none other! Currently, there are 16 URJ camps throughout North America that serve more than 8000 campers each summer.
