Camp Sabra will be the premier Jewish resident camp in North America building upon our rich traditions which began in 1938. Campers begin their Sabra experience when entering 3rd grade and continue through the 10th grade.
Company Overview
Since 1938, the St. Louis Jewish Community Center Association has provided continuous quality resident camping programs at the Lake of the Ozarks. From 1938-1969, Camp Hawthorn served as home away from home for thousands of campers and staff. When Hawthorn's size could no longer accommodate a growing camper population, the JCC purchased the current camp site (formerly Camp Wah-Kon-Dah) and opened ...Camp Sabra's doors in 1970.

Camp Sabra is a unique place to experience the joy of being Jewish. Through creative, fun and enriching programs, campers gain a new understanding of their own rich Jewish heritage. From singing and dancing and religious services on the Sabbath, to special all camp programs like Maccabia, the Jewish program at Camp Sabra has a special feeling, interwoven throughout our close camp community.
