CYJ-Texas is built on fun! Even more than that, we’ve designed a program where each child feels good about their strengths, respects the strengths of others, and knows that together, we can do great things. Everyone at CYJ can be themselves and know they belong, be it through sports, adventures, art, exploration, or bonding with friends.
Our main summer program offers 2 sessions of 3.5 weeks each. It’s a co-ed, residential camp experience, for 7-15 year olds and we offer an abbreviated, introductory program for 1st through 3rd graders. The day-to-day camp schedule is built to offer opportunities for individual campers, bunks, age groups, and the camp as a whole, to play, learn, and grow.
When CYJ’ers reach high school, they begin an exciting journey, often becoming staff members:
- Campers entering 9th enjoy our world-famous Segel trip, a 13-day summer adventure across the Southwest.
- Campers entering 10th and 11th grade have an amazing opportunity to continue their CYJ journey to Tel Yehudah – the teen camp for CYJ. Campers going to Tel Yehudah will have the opportunity to spend two days at CYJ then travel to Tel Yehudah together.
- When campers reach 12th grade, they become eligible for our Counselor in Training (CIT) experience, an opportunity to develop professional skills, carry on our camp philosophy and continue having amazing summers!
