  • Camp BB 60th Anniversary (all ages): June 24th to June 26th, 2016

    For 60 years, Camp BB Riback at Pine Lake Alberta has played such an iconic role in the lives of so many of us — we have fond memories of attending as campers, as staff, sending our own children, and watching it all grow.

    There is also no doubt that Jewish summer camp plays an integral role in strengthening Jewish identity, and the friendships we made at camp often last a lifetime.

    For this reason, we are asking you, whether you are past campers, past staff, or just simply current Camp BB fans, to join us in our 60th Anniversary Celebration which will be held during the weekend of June 24th to 26th.

    For those who went to Camp, come back to your roots, see old friends, an relive those magical summer days like breakfast in the Chadar, performances in the Olam including Israeli folk dancing, Degel at sunset, fun in the sun at the pool and at the lake, playing sports on the field, Shabbat & Havdallah services, bonfires with marshmallows, plus Camp songs both past and present.

    And for those of you who didn’t attend Camp, we invite you as well, to not only see what Camp was all about back in the early days, but also what new and wonderful features it offers today. We think you’ll be amazed at everything you see and hear!

    Our weekend events run from Friday night June 24th through to Sunday June 26th, though you’ll have the option to attend all weekend or just the Sunday, in which a special honorary banquet will be held.

    This promises to be a great, fun-filled, memorable weekend and we hope you can join us!

    You can register online by clicking here or please find attached our registration form. *Please note that if you already have an account for registering for Summer Camp, you can use the same account for this weekend’s events. “Additional Camper Forms” are required for Summer Camp but NOT the 60th Celebrations.

    See you in June!
