Wellness & Safety

At Camp Judaea, every activity is planned with “safety first.” As an American Camp Association Accredited Camp, we adhere to all standards for safety. All potentially hazardous areas in camp are off-limits to ALL campers. Our pool and waterfront staff members are all certified lifeguards. Lifeguards accompany campers whenever they take part in any water related field trip outside camp grounds. Our stables, pool, and challenge course are situated well away from camp living and activity areas and are off limits without the required staff.

Supervision is a priority and campers are never left alone, even after “lights out.”


Campers are required to wear identifying camp T-Shirts and security bracelets when outside of camp. Campers are always well supervised and not allowed to leave camp for any reason aside from supervised field trips.

Camp Judaea has hired security 24/7. All visitors check in at the office and are escorted during their visit.


Full-time medical staff is available at our Health Care Center (Mirpa’ah) and the Camp has access to nearby hospitals and medical specialists. All of our campers must have a completed health file before they arrive at camp so that our Health Care staff can properly service each person.

Camp Judaea’s Health Care Center is staffed by a resident Physician or Physician’s Assistant, Registered Nurses (RN) and health aides . In addition, staff members are Red Cross certified in CPR, First Aid, Lifesaving, and CPR for the professional rescuer. Camp Judaea meets or exceeds all health and safety standards set by the American Camp Association. This facility includes a private exam rooms, isolation rooms, and separate sleeping quarters for boys and girls.
