Who We Are: For 83 years, Camp Young Judaea in southern New Hampshire has provided a nurturing, residential summer camping experience where kids of all Jewish backgrounds feel free to be themselves, deepen both their Jewish knowledge and connection to Israel, and develop meaningful relationships that last a lifetime. We are more than a summer camp. We are a caring community grounded in the Jewish values of compassion, pluralism and menschlichkeit.

Our community is composed of:

  • 4,000 active alumni –– many of whose children and grandchildren attend camp

At our 168-acre site on the shores of Lake Baboosic — fondly known as Baboo — we welcome children 8-15 years-old (completing grades 2-9) for 2-week, 3 ½ - week and 7-week sessions. Our oldest campers participate in a culminating, educational experience in Israel for 5 weeks and then return to camp “deep in the hills of New Hampshire” for 2 weeks of leadership training. Camp Young Judaea is a private, independent, non-profit organization and is not affiliated with the Young Judaea movement or other camps with similar names. We are proud to be the original Camp Young Judaea.
