Camp Young Judaea

Amherst, NH


Camp Young Judaea, founded in 1939, serves children ages 8-15. Located on 168 acres on the shores of Lake Baboosic, our waterfront features two waterski/wakeboard power boats, canoes, kayaks, sailboats, paddleboats, paddle boards and windsurfers.

Camp Young Judaea facilities include eight tennis courts, several playing fields, basketball and volleyball courts, archery and riflery ranges, radio station, outdoor adventure course, a large modern dining room, sturdy wooden cabins, and several other spacious indoor facilities, including a gym/theater, arts and crafts studio, and rec hall. Shabbat services are held in a beautiful grove, sheltered by towering pine trees. Music, dance, drama, and Judaica are integral parts of our program.

At Camp Young Judaea, our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and healthy environment where campers from a diverse range of Jewish backgrounds will gain knowledge in a full range of activities, appreciate their Jewish heritage, have fun and create friendships that last forever.

The daily program consists of a mix of mandatory and elective activities, supervised by college-aged specialty staff. Most of our staff are former campers, and we also hire counselors from Israel, England, France, Australia, and South Africa. In-camp competitions and events, bunk activities, plays, sports, Judaica seminars, Color War, music, trips, and marvelous evening programs create a dynamic, exciting atmosphere of ruach (spirit), fun, camaraderie, and learning.
