Passion. Balance. Joy.
Few experiences provide the pure joy of surfing. The feeling of riding a first wave is exhilarating and addicting.
Sababa Surf Camp accesses the physical thrill of surfing, the tools of Jewish spirituality, the beauty of the beach and ocean, and a non-competitive environment where each camper challenges him/herself so that all teens can become more passionate, balanced, and joyous.
Teens today are over programmed, over stressed, and are swept up in the Race to Nowhere culture. Sababa Surf Camp is a direct response to help all teens find balance, have fun, and gain self-worth. Not only is the camp session a respite from the pressure; it also provides tools from a Jewish lens to help teens live a more emotionally healthy lifestyle. While most programs that market teens highlight the college acceptance boost their program provides or how it will help a teen grow into a future Jewish leader, Sababa Surf Camp is focused on the teen having fun and acting like a teen now. We expect our camp to create a community and cultural shift that promotes a healthy balance and spiritual awareness for teens through the physical exhilaration of surfing, the connection with nature on the beach, and the Jewish rituals created for this setting.
Sababa Surf Camp will meet daily at the Beach, of course! Sababa is returning this summer to our original location at Rockaway Beach. The address is Beach 67th St & Beach Front Road in Queens, NY 11692. Transportation is provided to/from the beach from Forest Hills, Manhattan, Great Neck, Brooklyn and Westchester.
