Vision

Camp Judah is a place where children and young people can have a personal encounter with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. It is comprised of local churches working together, in a spirit of humility, to provide an environment of holy worship, anointed teaching, real fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ, and exciting fun. We honor the calling and gifting of God in each camper by the presiding leadership of the Holy Spirit, so that each camper leaves camp with a burning passion for Jesus, and is a blessing to their family, local church and community.
