Camp Galil was founded on its current Bucks County site in 1946 as part of Habonim Dror North America, the progressive Labor-Zionist youth movement. The name "Galil" refers to the famously scenic area of northern Israel surrounding the Sea of Galilee. Prior to and during the 1948 Israeli War of Independence, Galil used its resources to help the Jewish war effort by holding weapons in its barn (refet). As the new Jewish state emerged, Galil trained and educated many of its members to visit Israel. Galilniks, along with other me mbers of Habonim, helped found and build several kibbutzim all over Israel, including Gesher Haziv and Urim.
