Sababa Beachaway is a co-ed residential summer camp for rising fifth through twelfth graders, located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Sababa immerses campers in the magic and majesty of the beach, adds the right amount of Jewish spiritual practice, and provides a fun, non-competitive yet challenging camp experience.

Sababa meaning “no worries” inspires us to be in the moment and fully present in all we do. We believe that surfing, sailing, scuba, ocean arts and ocean science promote wonder, awe, and curiosity - the cornerstones of Sababa Judaism. We celebrate that campers come from all different Jewish backgrounds, and that is what makes the Sababa Beachaway community so awesome!!!
