Campus & Location
Camp Judaea is nestled on 118 acres near beautiful Hendersonville, North Carolina in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. We are just 30 minutes from the wonderfully artistic city of Asheville, North Carolina — a fabulous tourist destination!
Our campus includes a charming mix of rustic and modern camp facilities. We continue to improve our facilities so that we may provide the best experiences for our campers and staff.
In summer 2019, Camp Judaea debuted the new Leon Levine Arts Center. The Mercaz Omanut (arts center) offers expansive programs and includes a woodshop, a ceramics studio, a general arts and crafts space, and a room for other programming. Campers have the opportunity to explore different media and create beautiful Judaic art.
In 2013 we built the first phase of our new cabin models. These cabins are spacious and sustainable with capacity to house up to 24 campers and staff! Each of the new cabins has three bathroom and shower stalls and porches in the front and back for optimal program and lounging space. Five more of these cabins were added in 2018 with plans to continue to build more in the future.
In 2017, our new Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall) was built to meet our growing needs. At Camp Judaea, the whole community dines together in one seating, and it is important that the space be comfortable enough for everyone to enjoy a family-style meal together. As a glatt kosher community, separate meat and dairy kitchens and equipment are used to prepare three hot meals a day. A small teaching kitchen is settled in the back of the building for cooking demonstration and programs which our campers thoroughly enjoy! The building also includes a first aid room adjacent to the dining hall for our medical staff to administer mealtime medications.
