St. Louis, MO – There is still time to register your child for Camp Sabra this summer!  The residential camp at Lake of the Ozarks, a part of the St. Louis Jewish Community Center, is one of the leading overnight camps in the United States.  Camp Sabra, and its predecessor Camp Hawthorne, has been creating summer magic for kids for more than 60 years.

With a perfect balance of wooded terrain and 3.5 acres of beautiful shoreline, Camp Sabra offers campers the opportunity to experience sailing, water skiing, tubing, outdoor sports, theatre, campfires, hiking, challenge courses, archery and so much more!  Regardless of the child’s age or interests, there is a place for him or her at Camp Sabra.  The experienced staff at Camp Sabra ensures the highest standards of health and safety and the camp is accredited by the American Camping Association.

Campers entering grades three through five can choose to register for a one-week, two-week, or the full four-week camp session.  Those entering grades six can register for a two-week or the full four-week camp session, and campers entering grades seven through 10 attend for the full four-week camp.  Camp Sabra also offers an Israel Trip to boys and girls entering their junior and senior year of high school.

Overnight camps have proven to be a positive experience for generations of campers.  Children learn to socialize and work together; they have an opportunity to express themselves creatively and to take risks they may not be able to take when confined to a classroom.  They get to try new things and cultivate a variety of interests that will encourage outdoor play and exercise even when they return home from camp.  It is also a great way to develop independence and confidence.  Summer camp allows children to establish who they are.

The Foundation for Jewish Camp is offering incentives of $1,000 for first-time campers and first-time campers from Interfaith Families.  Camp Sabra campers are elgible for both grants.  Last year, more than 70,000 campers received the One Happy Camper grant.  In addition, the St. Louis JCC also offers need-based scholarship.

Camp Sabra is renowned for offering children a summer of fun… a lifetime of memories.   Make sure yours gets to experience it this summer.   Contact Terri Grossman, Director of Camp Sabra, at 314-442-3180 for more information.
