Our Programs

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.
