Growing a community of Jewish leaders in the beautiful Texas Hill Country!

Since 1952, CYJ Texas has given thousands of Jewish children life-changing summers. We offer a fun, inclusive, challenging, action-packed, safe environment where campers can play, grow, and make lifelong friendships. Year after year our campers go home with a love of Judaism and a strong connection to Israel. We foster personal growth by encouraging all our kids to try new things and build new skills each and every summer.
