Over the years, hundreds of young people have come to Christ, experienced spiritual freedom, made commitments to Christ, and found their calling at Camp Judah. Many adults who live fruitful Christian lives point back to a power encounter with God at camp. Those who volunteer to serve at camp have unique opportunities to be an instrument of God’s love and power extended to young lives. Join us this summer to be a part of this powerful ministry.

Summer Camp has proven to be a very effective way to reach children and youth. Over the years, literally thousands of kids have come to Christ, received spiritual and emotional release, made fresh commitments and felt called to full-time ministry through the dynamics of Christian camping. Many adults who live fruitful Christian lives can point back to a powerful encounter with God at a summer camp. Elim Fellowship has been ministering to kids, through summer camps, for over fifty years. As a member of the staff at Camp Judah, you will have unique opportunities to be an instrument of God’s love and power, extended to young lives.
