I am grateful for Shabbat and celebrating with my Young Judaea community. Every Friday, my Year Course friends text me Shabbat Shalom. While on Year Course, my mom and I shared pictures of the challah we were making as well as the blessing for children. It makes me feel connected to my family (blood and not) no matter how far away we are from each other!

I am so grateful for the cozy quality time I get to spend with my family. I'm grateful for a break from the chaos of my busy life in the city. I'm grateful for nature and that I was able to watch spring happen. I'm grateful for time to make yummy food. I'm grateful for all of the wholesome community coping that's come up in this crazy time. Thank you <3 Shabbat Shalom

I will forever be grateful for Sprout Lake and the impact it has had on me. Sprout helped shape the type of person I am today. The community has provided me with confidence and acceptance, a special network of friends that feel like family that truly can't be found anywhere else, a love for Judaism, Israel and helping others in small and large scale ways. I am thankful to have had a second home in the summer since 2006. I am thankful that I was able to be a part of shaping the camp culture that makes Sprout so special for the past 5 summers through all my roles at camp. The amount of positivity, happiness, cohesiveness, energy, and love I feel at camp is unmatched. I am grateful to all the people in my life who helped Sprout become that place for me. Todah Rabbah

We are grateful for the ability to stay connected to those we love. We can't travel and hang out with our friends and family in person, but in some ways, we've become even more connected through other mediums and our shared experience. Of course, we are also grateful to be caretakers for Sprout, the camp bunny!
