CAMP PROGRAM INFO: CYJ is not affiliated with any particular stream of Judaism. Our goal is to provide our campers with the tools to make choices about their Jewish Identity and connection to Israel. Our campers and staff come from a broad spectrum of backgrounds in Jewish beliefs and practices. We have our own Siddur (prayer book) and our own traditions when it comes to observance. The backgrounds of our campers range from those that haven’t had much exposure to Judaism in their communities, to those that identify themselves as Orthodox. Our kitchen is Kosher, with certification and oversight from Kosher Supervisors of Wisconsin. We aim to create a sense of K’lal Yisrael, unity among the Jewish people, starting with the community we create at camp.

CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The CIT Program at CYJ Midwest allows participants to enjoy a summer at camp while learning new skills to help you develop as Jewish leaders in and out of the camp environment and to leave a lasting impact on campers and staff alike.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We understand that summer camp is a huge financial commitment. Camp Young Judaea Midwest is committed to working with each family to ensure that no child is turned away due to financial difficulties.
