Camp Sababa Senior

About the Camp
Camp Sababa Senior is a program of JewishCare, sponsored by the Wolper Jewish Hospital Health Foundation and the Jewish Communal Appeal, to provide a holiday camp for young adults who have disabilities. Campers get involved in various activities including outdoor recreation, sports, crafts, music and more.

Founding
Following the ongoing success of our Sony Foundation Children’s Holiday Camp, Camp Sababa, Camp Sababa Senior was founded in 2012 by a group of companions from Camp Sababa.  It represents the Jewish community’s continued effort to provide support for people who have disabilities and their families.

Objectives
The camp aims to:

  • Give campers a fun, accepting and interactive environment where they can meet new friends and hang out with old friends
  • Offer a unique opportunity for young adults in the community, who volunteer as Buddies for our campers, to bond with and learn from our campers in a supportive and inspirational environment

Our Campers and Buddies
Campers are young adults with disabilities within the community between the ages of 17-25 years.

Our Buddies are also young adults from within the community between the ages of 19-28 years and ensure the best possible time for our campers. Buddies participate in a comprehensive training program before the camp and are supported by an experienced team of staff and nurses during the camp.

Sponsors
We would like to take this opportunity to formally acknowledge and thank our sponsors, Wolper Jewish Hospital Health Foundation and the Jewish Communal Appeal, and supporters, JewishCare.  Without their help and generosity, Sababa Lagamba could not be possible.
