Camp BB Riback
For six decades, Camp BB Riback has created magical and memorable summers for Jewish Kids and teens. When kids experience the magic of Camp BB Riback their lives change. Camp pushes them to grow, to find their independence, to evolve into leaders, to develop new skills and activities they may have never tried and explore who they are.
Camp is the place kids dream about all year long. It is there alternate universe and home away from home. It is a place they want to come back to over-and-over again because they know they will always experience fun and adventure, create a lifetime of memories, make long-lasting friendships and relive cherished traditions year after year.
Your legacy contribution will continue to make Ted Riback’s 1956 dream and vision a reality where the future leaders of our Jewish community come together each and every summer.

We demonstrate that Jewish practice can be perpetuated in the prairies without compromising the traditions we hold to be important.

Cabin Refurbishment Campaign
The cabins at Camp BB Riback have witnessed the coming of age of successive generations of proudly Jewish children.
If those walls could talk, they would have some incredible stories to share! They have heard raucous laughter, voices raised in song, and more than a few spine-tingling ghost stories. They are silent witnesses to confidences shared as the bonds of lifelong friendships have been woven, one generation after another.
The Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary is proud to collaborate with Camp BB Riback in their capital campaign to refurbish every cabin. You can help to ensure a safe and comfortable environment as our kids and grandkids journey toward becoming all that they can be.
The cost to fully refurbish a cabin is $20,000. Your generous commitment in any amount may be fulfilled in four equal instalments commencing in 2022 and concluding in 2025.
If those walls could talk, they would join us in a rousing, camp-style todah rabah!
