Camp Judaea is Going Green

Camp Judaea is Going Green

When you meet a camper who participated in our program, you see a child who is equipped with the tools to heal the world. At Camp Judaea, we are dedicated to educating the leaders and citizens of tomorrow on the importance of taking care of the earth today. We teach how to promote sustainability and encourage campers’ efforts at being good neighbors with each other by respecting the environment we all share.

Camp offers a magical socialization environment in which we have an opportunity that no other educational institution can offer. We have a captive audience that is eager to be at camp and learn what we have to offer. Just as we teach Judaism by “living Judaism,” we teach environmentalism by modeling for campers how to incorporate recycling, reducing, reusing and conserving into their daily life.

WHAT DID CAMP JUDAEA DO IN THE 2009 SUMMER?

  • Our campers planted a vegetable garden that they then ate in their salad bar.
  • We learned how to compost food as well as not waste by putting less on your plate
  • We ate on plates – real ones
  • We reduced our landfill trash from 22 bags per day to 6
  • Collected over 200 CFL bulbs that will replace our current less energy efficient bulbs
  • Learned to concerve energy and water
  • We carried water bottles and saved 20 cases of cups that we normally use
  • We recycled everything possible
  • We learned the concept of “leave no trace”

What are YOU doing to heal our earth? Follow our lead!
