Sprout Westchester, a Young Judaea Day Camp, is a place where Jewish children join together to create a diverse, joyful community based on fun, Jewish values, friendship, personal growth, and tikkun olam (repairing the world). Sprout Westchester provides campers with an inclusive and supportive community, an opportunity to grow and a place to develop a connection to Israel.
The Sprout Westchester program provides a dynamic and innovative program including a variety of sports, arts, specialty and aquatics activities, specifically designed to be age-appropriate for each group of campers. Our programs also include new and exciting activities such as yoga, nature, gardening and an adventure course. Our programs allow campers to discover new experiences in a safe environment giving them the freedom to explore who they really are, play in a bully-free zone, find out what it means to be a friend and develop a genuine sense of community and belonging.
Shabbat Fridays bring campers and families a little closer together as they celebrate Shabbat at camp, fostering a greater Jewish community environment.
Our special events include Maccabiah games, which give our campers the chance to compete in this uniquely Jewish sporting event, and bringing in special performers. We are constantly thinking of new ways to innovate and bring new ideas to our program.
But above all, it's our staff who builds the foundation of a Jewish community as great role models. We know we've done our job if our campers never want the day to end.
