Testimonials

CYJ is one of the most beautiful retreat centers we’ve been to.

The serene atmosphere and deer roaming around the camp grounds made our weekend retreat even more of a blessing. Our intent is to connect with God in nature and CYJ definitely provides the place for that to happen without any distractions. The camp director’s service and attention as well as the center’s facilities surpassed our expectations by far. We will definitely come back to CYJ to have another young adult retreat.

YJ has been a great place for our school’s High School Retreat!

Their staff is very helpful and always on hand and eager to assist with whatever needs to be taken care of!

The Kosher kitchen is a really important part of what CYJ has to offer for our group, it allows us to focus on our program knowing that the food will be great, plentiful and kosher!

From start to finish, the staff at Camp Young Judaea made us feel welcome and met our needs through our entire stay.

The camp provided a great environment for our small group meetings and our outdoor team building activities too. We also had a large group of picky high school eaters, and they left every meal asking when the next one was, because everything was so delicious. We will definitely be back for another retreat at Camp Young Judaea.

We had an alumni retreat at CYJ in November with 120 people.

CYJ had plenty of rooms to accommodate our group’s varying needs, great facilities and terrific food.  Best of all, the staff was friendly, responsive and helpful.  CYJ made our day!

CYJ Texas has been the perfect venue for our yearly conference.

The staff is great, the facilities are beautiful, and CYJ Texas has done a great job taking care of our special requests.  The chef at CYJ has accommodated our particular menu requests each year, giving us some fantastic meals.  The natural setting of CYJ makes it a great place to get away from the distractions of daily life.  Waking up to see the beautiful deer grazing on the grounds prepares you for a great day.  One of the best things about CYJ Texas is that it is a retreat, but it is also convenient. Wi-Fi is available everywhere and amenities range from dining halls, meeting areas, to swimming pools and even a business center.  We just finished our 3rd annual conference at CYJ Texas and plan to return for many years to come.  After researching other camps in the area years ago, we realized CYJ is the best.

We had an incredible time at CYJ

We had an incredible time at CYJ! It accommodated us perfectly and the staff was so hospitable & kind. I especially enjoyed working with Ximena, she really went above and beyond in hosting our group! We’ve already talked about how we want to book it for next year when we come to Austin again!

We had a very meaningful retreat this past weekend at CYJ.

The retreat host was extremely helpful and accommodating. The food was very good and I appreciate the accommodations for the gluten-free women

Thank you so much for your help in making our week of programming a success!

The bunks and apartments were a great space for us. Our participants loved the space, were well rested, and got to enjoy the Hill Country’s greenery.
We especially enjoyed our night by the campfire. During our time at camp, we felt very well taken care of and safe.

Thank you for working to accommodate our group. It meant a lot to us to have such a special place to come back to at night. I hope we will be able to work together in the future.

We have been conducting our annual retreat at CYJ for many years and continue to so in future.
