Week 3 at CJ.
July 4, 2014
It's been a very busy week here at Camp. The weather has been very good and we have not been affected by Hurricane Arthur at all.
Camp Judaea, in Hendersonville, North Carolina, is open for its 2014 summer of exciting, dynamic Zionist camping with the record number of 479 children enrolled and still counting!
Known as “A Little Bit of Israel in the Heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains”, this is the summer camp that the Florida Atlantic Region loves and supports.
New this summer are five beautiful brand new cabins, a woodland shelter for overnights with our youngest campers, an expanded healthcare center and a farm. A farm? Yes, we have expanded our vegetable garden program to include two goats and some chickens and a full-time farm instructor.
I am pleased to tell you that the Harold Grinspoon Foundation will again match chapter dollars donated directly to camp. The rules of this match are donors (either a chapter, individual, or family group) who donate $1800 or more payable over 3 years will have Grinspoon match it. The pledge must be made by March 2104 and 1/3 paid within 60 days. The balance must be paid by September 18, 2016. This must come directly to Camp Judaea, not to Hadassah.
I hope that many of you will continue your support in this way.
Your love and dedication shows in every smile on our happy campers’ faces and in every inch of our beautiful camp.
You make an immeasurable difference!

The uplifting feeling of seeing so many Jewish children enthusiastically participating in Jewish customs has stayed with me since observing it first hand. It is remarkable in this day and age of assimilation to see Yiddishkeit being accepted by all these children. It reinforces the need for a Jewish camp experience, which produces memories, and friendships, that last a lifetime.
The registration season is well underway; we are eagerly anticipating another fantastic summer in
