Established in 1925, Camp Yungvelt, “Young World” in Yiddish, served as a summertime extension of the Toronto Workmen’s Circle’s curriculum promoting progressive secular Jewish education. Camp Yungvelt eventually established itself in Pickering, Ont.,  on a parcel of land donated by a group of its members. Pictured here are a group of Camp Yungvelt campers and staff with posters which read: “War is murder, the promoters – murderers”, and “We want our fathers with us and not in war”, 1937.
