Everyone Belongs 2

Ben is a young boy with autism who has trouble making friends, and figuring out social situations. At first, he had a hard time connecting with the campers in his bunk. One day, he asked his bunk-mate, Aaron, if he could play ping pong, and Aaron told him ‘no’.

Everyone Belongs

At CYJ, everyone belongs. By showing each and every camper love, acceptance, and respect — and asking for it in return — they feel important, accepted and most importantly, capable of doing great things.

Camp Young Judaea-Texas campers feel loved and accepted, build their confidence and discover one another’s unique identities as they spend their days outdoors, playing sports, making crafts and singing songs. Camp memories and bonds last a lifetime – from racing across the zipline, to song-filled hikes, to sharing stories around the campfire, and celebrating Shabbat; camp is a time for learning what it means to be a true friend. Campers return home having deeply experienced relationships built on respect; as they play, share and cooperate with friends, and as counselors and staff lead by example.

We’ve been changing the lives of Jewish campers since 1952. Our camp family welcomes campers with different abilities, backgrounds, and denominations, and encourages them to explore new things, connect to who they are, connect to others, and discover their hidden strengths.
