Camp Sprout Westchester gave my daughter the wonderful opportunity to try new things and increase her independence in a supportive, active, and, most importantly, fun atmosphere.
The counselors effortlessly (and energetically!) straddled the gap between peer and authority figure, managing to connect with, and mentor, her throughout the day. The administrative staff were always available and eager to help, which, as a busy mom, I truly appreciated.
Camp Sprout Westchester’s campus is beautiful and provided the perfect environment for the myriad activities offered daily. From swimming in the two pools to canoeing on the lake to rope climbing on the open-air course, my daughter was consistently interacting with the outdoors in the many different areas this unique spot offers.
My daughter is still talking about how much fun she had and all the things she learned at Sprout Westchester!
I wanted to thank you for an incredible summer full of good vibes, new skills, friendship, and that special, infectious Sprout cheer. It was evident from the first moment we visited in June and we continue to feel it through every van ride, counselor or staff interaction, and especially during Shabbat. We could not have asked for a better camp experience. Thank you for working so hard to make Sprout Westchester our kids’ home away from home.
They have enjoyed the past three weeks immensely and have quickly grown used to the routines of the day. Thank you and your team for creating such a wonderful, fun filled environment. It has been a terrific experience and we have enjoyed seeing and sharing a few moments on Fridays.
This summer, after being at Sprout, ‘S’ became aware about her Jewish identity. The program has all the components to make an amazing summer experience: Arts and Crafts, Nature, Cooking, Athletics, Ropes and more. It’s got it all! She’s much more comfortable in the water, and I’m more comfortable with her in the water, after she learned to swim at camp.
“Kids are growing up during a time when technology is everywhere and life is fast-paced. Sprout Westchester offers children the opportunity to step away from screen time and the pressures of life in 2019 and enjoy a range of fun-filled summer activities. My son, who is six, attended the camp in 2018 and looked forward to going every day. Whether he was taking on the ropes course or baking Challah — the programming always offered a range of interesting options. I also want to speak to the loving and inclusive community at Sprout. Cathy Deutchman runs the camp in a way that is both sensitive and sophisticated. She clearly put significant thought into creating a team of counselors who were very caring and positive. My son, for example, was not an independent swimmer when he started camp in June and with the nurturing and support of the staff he passed his deep water test in August. I didn’t know Cathy before my son attended last summer and yet it became clear to me very quickly that for her this wasn’t just a job. She exhibits a true passion to make a difference in the lives of children. I highly recommend Sprout Westchester Day Camp!”
