Shabbat at Camp

At CYJ Sprout Lake we celebrate a traditional child centered Shabbat. As with all of our programming, our schedule on Shabbat is developed to inspire children to experience and ask questions about the Jewish people, Israel and Judaism. We provide a shomer shabbat experience which allows everyone to experience a relaxing yet dynamic time.

We create experiences to enhance each camper’s connection to Shabbat. Throughout Shabbat, we enrich our activities to make the day more restful and different from the rest of the week all while keeping in the camp spirit. Shabbat ends with the entire camp participating in Havdala and Rikud (Israeli dance) session together.
