Have you seen Camp Judaea’s five beautiful new cabins completed in time for our 2013 season? Campers live in rustic and simple cabins, each equipped with electricity, hot water, two or three showers, two or three sinks, two or three toilets, and storage space. In addition, campers enjoy spacious modern wooden bunk-beds with comfortable and hygienic mattresses, as well as space to store clothing and personal items. Each of our camper cabins is supervised by 3-4 caring and loving staff members. Daily cabin clean-up competitions (“Nikayon”) encourage each camper to care for his/her own belongings and to cooperate with the group. Our housekeeping staff sanitize each camper bathroom on a regular basis.
Our haimish camp community dines together in one seating at every meal in our air conditioned dining hall. Our campers RAVE about our scrumptious and healthy meals which are prepared in our modern, fully equipped, kosher kitchens with separate facilities for meat, dairy and parve. We strictly adhere to the laws of Kashrut and our food preparation is supervised by the Asheville Kashrut Commission. Meals are served family-style. Special diets and vegetarian options are available for those who request them in advance. View a sample menu.
