A JEWISH OVERNIGHT CAMP IN BEAUTIFUL VIRGINIA BEACH
SUMMER LOCATION: OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY
The ocean is the ultimate tool in making us feel both huge and small...
Sababa Beachaway is a co-ed residential summer camp for rising fifth through twelfth graders, located in beautiful Virginia Beach. Sababa immerses campers in the magic and majesty of the beach, adds the right amount of spiritual practice, and provides a fun, non-competitive yet challenging camp experience!
Our two-week sessions invite campers to escape the grind in order to ride the wave, catch the wind, explore the sea, and capture the moment. Whether on a surfboard, in a sailboat, behind a camera, or under the sea, Sababa campers learn exhilarating new skills, build lifelong relationships, grow a stronger sense of self, and stoke an innate spiritual flame.
All specialties for all skill levels from beginner to expert
Life at Sababa is centered around three core aspects... Specialties, Electives, and Sababa Time. Our specialties are SCUBA, Surfing, Sailing, Ocean Arts and Ocean Discovery. They are chosen during registration for each session, before campers arrive to Sababa Beachaway. We encourage our participants to see their specialty as a medium and metaphor to inspire a more enthusiastic, spiritual, mindful, and passionate life.
Electives are chosen each day and include things like, sports, music, yoga, cooking, fishing, and more.
Finally, Sababa Time is the inbetween time and what make Sababa special. It includes bonfires, team building, and structured relaxation activities that build the tradition, mood, and energy of SABABA! It is this intentional time that best friends are made, community is established, and lifelong memories are created.
