First Time Here?

To old friends, new friends, and friends I haven’t met yet—

Welcome to the home of Camp Young Judaea-Texas! I’m Camp Director, Frank Silberlicht, and I’m so glad you stopped by!



Seeing you here, I’m guessing I know something about you already: you have an idea of what an incredible blessing a Jewish camp experience can be. Well I can tell you, as a director since 1998 and a camp father myself, there’s no gift more enriching, fun, and valuable for your kids than a summer at CYJ! (Okay, I’m a little biased, but it’s still true!)

Since 1952, CYJ has provided life-changing summers to thousands of children! We offer a fun, supportive environment where campers can explore, challenge themselves, and develop their passions. Here, kids of all backgrounds and denominations can strengthen their Jewish and Zionist identities, all while surrounded by beautiful facilities and expert staff. It’s a place where kids can be kids, where lifelong friendships are born, where campers can be themselves and know they belong.


So come on in, take a look around—we’ve got tons to show you:

Give your kids the gift of confidence, of sport, of art and play and song. Give them connection and water slides, growth and zip lines. Give them fun they’ll never forget and friends they’ll never lose. Give them a summer at CYJ-Texas!



We hope to see you there!
