Inspiring Journeys… Natural Connections

October 6-8, 2017

Camp Young Judaea, Wimberley, Texas

Gather in the Hill Country with other environmentalists as we inspire each other with our journeys. Along the way we have learned valuable lessons and made natural connections between places, people and programs. Please be a part of this journey toward Environmental Literacy.

Camp Young Judaea offers us room to roam, a new LEEDS building, dining hall and lodging.  Set on Cypress Creek, we can canoe the lake, watch the deer and make s'mores at the campfire circle.  Join in the autumn Hill Country experience!
