About The Facility
Established in 1961, Camp Judaea is a small, Jewish, Israel-centered summer camp community for boys and girls ages 7-15 located in Hendersonville, NC.

At Camp Judaea, we offer a wide variety of really fun activities in a loving family atmosphere. This allows campers to grow and even transform themselves every summer they return.

Camp Judaea’s small scale allows campers to explore, learn and grow while being surrounded by unconditional love and acceptance. We know and understand each child individually and embrace them in a caring summer family where life-long friendships develop and are nurtured.

Located on 118 acres in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, our setting inspires campers to embrace nature, take positive risks and become more independent.
