Our Program: The Young Judaea Difference
Sprout Brooklyn, opened in the summer of 2015 in Red Hook and provides a new model of day camping, which includes skill building in the areas of swimming, sports, performing arts, crafts and robotics all interwoven with dynamic experiential Jewish programming and Hebrew. What distinguishes this camp is our holistic approach to Jewish and Israel education and child development.
Sprout Brooklyn is a special place that caters specifically to young children. Our age appropriate activities help each child achieve their full potential, while teaching them important skills like teamwork and relationship building. Our staff are a mix of college students and professionals who work at Sprout Brooklyn because they want to help make a difference in the lives of young children.
קייטנת ספראוט ברוקלין, שנפתחה בקיץ 2015 בשכונת רד-הוק, מהווה מודל חדש של מחנה יום, המציג גישה הוליסטית לחינוך יהודי ואהבת הארץ. הקייטנה מציעה מגוון רחב של פעילויות כמו שחיה, ספורט, אמנות, דרמה, ובישול, והכל תוך כדי שימוש בשפה העברית ובשילוב ערכים יהודיים כמו חברות, אחווה, תיקון עולם וערבות הדדית. ספראוט ברוקלין, היא מקום בו ילדים מרחבי הקשת היהודית חוברים יחדיו בכדי ליצור קהילה מיוחדת, המקנה לילדים כלים אשר יחברו אותם הן לקהילה היהודית והן למדינת ישראל.
Hebrew Dual Language Program (דוּ לְשׁוֹנִי)
Sprout Brooklyn is proud to offer Brooklyn’s premier Dual Language Day Camp. Regardless of a camper’s Hebrew knowledge, our play-based curriculum makes Hebrew accessible to all. Our Israeli staff speak Hebrew to campers all throughout the day and campers participate in immersive Hebrew activity periods multiple times a week. Your child will come home singing Hebrew songs, sharing new Hebrew words and with a new-found curiosity about the Hebrew language.
Swim Instruction (שְׂחִיָּה)
We offer instructional swim at the Red Hook Pool. Our swim program makes campers feel comfortable and safe in the water and teaches basic swim skills. Our swim directors and pool staff are certified by the American Red Cross.
We offer instruction in basketball, soccer, baseball, ultimate frisbee and more. Our sports programs are designed and run by experienced instructors with an emphasis on safety, personal development and team spirit.
Campers have an opportunity to learn coding using our Wonder Workshop Dash Robots. Dash is smart enough to respond to voices and sounds and Dash can dance and sing, which makes for a fun and interactive learning experience for campers.
Creative arts (אָמָּנוּת)
In arts (Omanut) we explore campers’ artistic sides through paint, drawing, sculpture, mosaics and more. Campers will have the opportunity to explore different mediums and experiment with different artistic styles.
Performing Arts (אָמָּנוּת הבָּמָה)
In this program campers sample all parts of performing arts, including dance, song, and drama. Each camper who wants will have a chance to perform at one point during camp! Chanichim will also learn modern Israeli songs and dances.
Campers learn delicious, kid-friendly recipes with our dynamic culinary arts instructors. Our cooking program fosters an appreciation of healthy cooking and the central role food plays in Israeli and Jewish culture.
Creative Play (לְשַׂחֵק)
One of the most important parts of childhood is creative independent play. At Sprout Brooklyn, creative play is an integral part of our program. We have indoor and outdoor play spaces as well as an Imagination Playground.
Sensory Explorations (חיפושים חושיים)
Sensory Explorations includes activities that stimulate our campers senses: touch, smell, taste, movement, balance, sight and hearing. Our sensory activities facilitate exploration and naturally encourage campers to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore.
Jewish & Israeli Culture
Jewish and Israel experiential education is interwoven into all of Sprout Brooklyn’s activities. The campers leave each day with a deeper connection to Israel or having discovered something new about their Jewish identity.
