What CYJ Midwest parents and campers are saying:

“My son has been an unsuccessful camper at another camp. He LOVED CYJ and was relaxed and happy there. This made me very happy and I was completely satisfied that the camp was responsive to his needs and acknowledged and addressed my concerns. What a great summer!”

“Community is CYJ’s major strength. Our children have been returning to second session for years because of the closeness and diversity of the campers and staff.”

“As a parent, I was most satisfied with the caliber of the counselors and the way they treated my child.”

“Just keep doing what you’re doing! You guys are all awesome and my son looks forward to the summer because of what you do.”

“You offer the ultimate Jewish camp experience. My son enjoys all of the activities that you plan and all of the challenges that you put before him. Thank you!!”

“CYJ is creating a compassionate, caring, safe Jewish environment for children to explore their independence and have a fun summer.”

“I would say that Camp Young Judaea’s major strength is creating a place that you can really feel like you truly belong and won’t be judged. In the cabin, I made friends who I could literally talk to about anything and they wouldn’t judge me. CYJ is a place that I am happy…Overall, CYJ is a safe haven where you can be yourself.”
