Why give to Sabra?
- Help campers (our future leaders) discover their strengths and enhance their individual resiliency
- Invest in the future of the Jewish Community
- Create future Jewish philanthropists with a unique connection to the Jewish community and Israel
- Make an investment in what generations of past, present and future campers call “home”
For generations of summers, something special and transformative has taken place at Camp Wah-Kon-Dah and Camp Hawthorn, and continues to take place at Camp Sabra. A deep sense of community and an enriched understanding of Judaism are forged. New friendships are born and old ones rekindled. Skills are learned and honed, and campers return home with a new sense of independence, self-awareness, and an experience that has shaped who they will become later in life. And, while learning all of this, our campers are having the time of their lives!
As a non-profit entity, Camp Sabra’s mission is to help future leaders develop their Jewish identities and embrace traditions under the beautiful canopy of camp. Camp is a safe environment infused with ruach (camp spirit!), and the Wah-Kon-Dah, Camp Hawthorne and Camp Sabra experiences have changed the lives of thousands of young people for more than 70 years. Your gift to Sabra will allow us to provide opportunities for the next generations of campers. We need your help in order to keep Camp Sabra, a home away from home, growing.
