  • Where is Camp Massad located?

  • Do you have to be Jewish to attend Massad?
    Absolutely not! Each summer we have a staff and campers who come from many cultural and religious backgrounds. Although we are a Jewish summer camp at heart, our focus is mainly on the more cultural aspects of Judaism.
  • Do campers have to speak Hebrew to attend Massad?
    The ability to speak or understand Hebrew is not required. Everything is translated for those who are unfamiliar with the language. Campers will develop and expand on their knowledge of Hebrew.
  • What kind of programming does Massad offer?
    Camp Massad offers a wide range of activities to foster creativity, self-expression and independence. From our many sports facilities to arts and crafts to Judaic programming your child is sure to find something that caters to their interests. Check out our activities page for more info.
  • What kind of supervision is there at Massad?
    Every camper lives in a cabin with their cabin mates and a minimum of 2 cabin counselors. Our Hanhallah (administration) is a group of senior staff who are dedicated to making sure all of our campers are being cared for and treated with the utmost respect. All of our staff go through an immersive staff training session which includes child care, mental health and First Aid/CPR certification.
  • How long are the camp sessions?
    Camp session range from five days to six weeks depending on the age of the camper. See the registration page for further details.
  • How do campers get to and from Massad?
    Included in your camp fees is transportation to and from Massad at the beginning of each session. A bus will pick up and drop off all campers at the Asper Jewish Community Campus at 123 Doncaster St. Alternatively, we have the option for the bus to stop at the Winnipeg Beach tennis courts to pick up and drop off any kids who may be in the Interlake area. If you are from out of town and are wishing to send your child to camp, we will make arrangements on an individual basis. Please contact the camp office for more information.
  • Can special dietary needs and food allergies be accommodated?
    As a Kosher summer camp, Camp Massad does its very best to accommodate campers with special dietary needs or food allergies. Camp Massad is a nut-free facility. Vegetarian options are provided at every meat meal. Camp Massad has provided many gluten free meals. We highly recommend contacting the Camp Massad Director to discuss serious food restrictions and allergies so that appropriate accommodations can be made.
  • Can my child bring, or can I send food to camp?
    Please do not pack food, gum, seeds or junk food. All food will be confiscated and not returned. Camp Massad takes precautions to avoid common allergens, this makes it imperative that we have your cooperation in not sending food of any kind to camp.
  • What if my child gets sick at camp?
    Our infirmary houses a Health Officer 24 hours a day to provide necessary care throughout the summer. We are within a 10 minute drive to the Gimli Community Health Centre and a 30 minute drive to the Selkirk Hospital. As a parent you can be comfortable knowing that your child will receive all the care they need while at camp.
  • If I am going to be near Massad, can I stop by to say hi to my child?
    Unfortunately we have a strict no visiting policy for a few reasons; Visitors distract and disrupt our camp programming. Having people come on and off the campsite limits our abilities to provide a safe and secure environment. Many of our campers experience homesickness, having other parents visit the site only perpetuates those feelings.
  • Do you require COVID-19 vaccines?
    We are strongly recommending that all staff and campers follow the provincial health guidelines and get the booster against Covid-19.
  • What is the best way to communicate with my child while they’re at camp?
    Mail! Because who doesn’t like to receive mail? Campers look forward to receiving mail so please remember to send postcards and letters regularly to your child. Due to slow mail delivery to the beach, we suggest you send something a few days prior to the session, to ensure your child receives mail early in the session. Experience has demonstrated that our campers enjoy frequent letters, which may include a bit of family news, some jokes or riddles, and perhaps a plan for what the family may do upon the child’s return. It is understandable that families and campers miss each other, which is why positive, happy letters are eagerly anticipated and really appreciated. Receiving letters which outline many activities that the family did in their absence may make campers feel as if they are missing out on things while they are at camp.
  • Can my child request cabin mates?
    You will have the ability to request cabin mates for your child during the registration process.
  • Can I pick up my child early from camp?
    You are free to pick up your child at any point throughout the summer, however, there will be no refunds for an early pickup.
