The Camp Sabra Story

Camp Sabra has been home to Jewish children from all over the United States since 1938 (Camp Hawthorne and Camp Wah Kon Dah were merged and renamed Camp Sabra in 1970). Each summer we create a joyous Jewish community surrounded by 3.5 miles of shoreline and 205 wooded acres. We welcome campers from 8-15 for one, two or four week sessions with a wide range of activities that includes water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, lake and pool swimming, sailing, paddle boarding, canoeing, funyaking, zip lining, climbing, gaga indoors and out, Judaics, Tarbut (Israeli cooking, games and dance), archery, video, tennis, soccer, basketball, softball, indoor hockey, arts & crafts, theater, nature, camp outs, and many other daily choices. Our food is VAAD approved kosher, and we eat together in our air conditioned dining hall. Camp Sabra in the Lake of the Ozarks is a magical place where fun and friendship build Jewish lives.

Why We Host Schlichim

"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

Connecting with Israel

“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.” - Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
