About Camp Judah

Camp Judah is a place where children and young people can have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. It is comprised of local churches, working together, in a spirit of humility, to provide an environment of holy worship, anointed teaching, real fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ, and exciting fun. We honor the calling and gifting of God in each camper by the presiding leadership of the Holy Spirit, so that each teen leaves camp with a burning passion for Jesus, and is a blessing to their family, local church and community. The oversight for Camp Judah is shared by a group of local pastors.

How We Keep Campers Safe

All of us on the camp oversight board have kids that are camper age, so we understand the concerns of parents sending their kids to an overnight camp. Here are some of the things we do to keep our kids and your kids safe:

  • We run a background check on all staff members
  • All staff are required to submit a reference letter from their pastor
  • No staff member is allowed to be alone in a cabin with a camper


We have (a) full-time nurse(s) on the camp grounds along with a robust system in place to make sure every camper gets the medication they need, when they are prescribed to receive it. Our nurse(s) are also great at helping homesick kids enjoy the week by giving out freeze-pops!

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to us!
