What CYJ Midwest Parents and Campers Are Saying

“Our child had a wonderful and growth-filled experience at camp, for which we are grateful. CYJ Midwest seems to be down to earth, nurturing and non-denominational, which we appreciate for a camp experience for our child.”

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

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

“There is a true sense of care, love and kindness at CYJ like I have never seen anywhere else.”

“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.”

“The sense of community, Zionism, and connection to Judaism. She comes home each summer singing prayers at [the] Shabbat table and jumping around and singing like crazy, even sharing all of the hand movements to benching (after meal prayer). This enthusiasm is astounding to see…When she comes home, she is flying high on camp ruach. It is a gift for a kid who does not go to Jewish day school and only gets this umph at camp.”
