Mission Statement

For five decades, Camp Judaea has been providing a high-quality, fun and educational program to children and staff members. We strive to enhance each camper's Jewish identity and love for Israel while also providing the opportunity for individual growth and social experience. Our beautiful setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina provides each camper with an outdoor experience that will heighten his or her appreciation of nature and the outdoors.

 

Camp Judaea, one of the five regional camps across the United States sponsored by Hadassah, is located in Hendersonville, NC - about 175 miles Northeast of Atlanta. 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 and Washington, DC, and much more. 

Camp staff place special emphasis on Jewish heritage and a connection to Israel. Each age group has a theme-oriented program consisting of informal educational activities programmed by the staff. Camp Judaea is equipped with two kosher kitchens and provides an enriching Shabbat experience.  

The Camp Judaea Philosophy
Camp Judaea's philosophy centers around five critical areas of knowledge and development referred to as our “pillars”:

Israel * Judaism * Individual Growth * Community * Nature

All of the programs at Camp Judaea are designed to strengthen our campers' connection to these five areas. From horseback riding to climbing our tower and learning about nature to creating art, each activity in our program strives to integrate two or more of our pillars.

Our educational program is sequentially based, with each age group focusing on a particular theme for the entire session. Our campers learn through fun interactive activities.

Program 1

Camp Judaea Programs

Camp Judaea offers programs for campers who are entering grades 3-10. The program focuses around immersing the campers into a Jewish environment and showing the campers that being Jewish is a source of pride and that being Jewish is FUN! Sessions are four weeks long (the youngest age group comes for only two weeks) and older campers may choose sessions that include week-long trips to New York City or Washington, DC, or ten days in the woods with the North Carolina Outward Bound School. All sessions, including the trip sessions, include an age-appropriate educational theme. Judaism, Zionism, individual growth, social/group experience, and a love of nature and the outdoors are all promoted in each program.
