What is Young Judaea?


Over 40 years ago, Young Judaea established a regional summer camp in Verbank NY, better known as, Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake. Since that time we have grown from under 100 campers, to over 400 campers! We have 16 beautiful cabins and many state-of-the art facilities. The campers at Sprout Lake are entering 2nd grade through entering 8th grade and we offer many different types of sessions, ranging from 1 week, to 8 weeks.

CYJ Sprout Lake also offers options for campers not ready for overnight camps at our two day camps located in Brooklyn and Northern Westchester.

Young Judaea

Camp Young Judaea Sprout Lake is the summer expression of Young Judaea.

For over 100 years, Young Judaea has brought together thousands of Jewish youth from across the country and around the world, of every religious, cultural, and political persuasion, through a shared commitment to Jewish values and love of Israel.
