Sixty-five years ago a group of committed men and women had the vision and courage to move Camp Hatikvah from the shores of Whiterock into the Okanagan. Sparsely populated at the time and a far shlep from Vancouver, this was a very bold decision but, as we now know, it turned out to be a brilliant one.

 The past year has been a difficult one for our organization but it was during this time of hardship that we really came to understand how much Camp Hatikvah means to so many. It is with this in mind that we decided not to let our 65th Anniversary pass us by without a celebration - even if it can't be done in a traditional way due to Covid.

 

Despite the current challenges in the world and for our camp, we have a lot to be grateful for and we have put this special website together as a tribute to our past and the people who have made our camp this special place that it is. We hope that you enjoy it from the comfort of your home as we look forward to better days ahead when we can all be together again.
