Camp Sabra


Download Our Brochure

Welcome to Camp Sabra, the J’s premier residential summer camp, located on the Staenberg Peninsula at the Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri!

The Camp Sabra family is made up of campers in third through tenth grades and our amazing staff. Together, we build a kind, tightly-knit community each summer as we create lifelong memories. Our campers and staff come from all over the world, and bring their own experiences and perspectives on life that make each Camp Sabra summer unique and irreplaceable.

Our campers explore their creative sides through our music, art and theatre programs. Our excursions, river trips, water sports, high-ropes courses, zip line (and more) encourage our campers to discover their sense of adventure. Our activities aim to help campers build confidence and to discover what they enjoy. There are no video games or texting at Camp Sabra – just fresh air, sunshine and a chance to explore new experiences!

We want our summer campers to enjoy their time at Camp Sabra and to also have experiences that have a lasting impact on their lives. When our campers leave Camp Sabra, our hope is:

  • They have enhanced their connection to their Jewish identity.
  • They have heightened their sense of independence.
  • They have increased their personal resiliency.
  • They have created a personal Jewish community for themselves.
  • They have acquired physical and outdoor skills.
