Looking for a great Jewish summer camp?


Summer’s coming – and there’s no better place to spend the summer than camp. In Young Judaea, camp is a place where kids can build memories and friendships that last a lifetime, where they can start to find their independence, strengthen their connection to Judaism and Israel, and most of all, have fun!

Young Judaea camps, which are supported by Hadassah, have everything you could ask for in a summer camp – hiking, swimming, drama, sports, arts & crafts, and more – with a special focus on Jewish identity and Israeli culture.

We have two camps serving your area for campers in grades 2-9 where hundreds of young people join us every year for an unforgettable summer, while growing as individuals and committed Jews.

Camp Judaea, in Hendersonville, North Carolina, is a co-ed Jewish overnight camp for children in grades 2-9.  Each summer over 500 campers from the South and Mid-Atlantic states participate in 2, 4, or 8 week sessions. Located on 118 acres of lush, rolling terrain that offers clean air, blue skies, and tall trees in a beautiful mountain setting, Camp Judaea's programs include horseback riding, basketball, softball, arts & crafts, ceramics, drama, field trips, amusement parks, a swimming program, canoeing, tennis, special teen trips to New York & Washington, DC, and much more.  For more information please contact the Camp Judaea office at 404-634-7883 or check us out on the web at www.campjudaea.org.
