  Kol Ramah, Week 5
Fine Arts at Ramah
From ceramics and omanut (arts and crafts) to ma'ayan (beading) and etz (woodworking), our campers tap into their creativity in our fine arts programs. We are so impressed by our first session projects including Jerusalem stone tzedakah boxes and watercolor prints in omanut, dreidel-shaped and apple-shaped dishes in ceramics, and bentscher holders in etz. Art at Ramah lives beyond our designated art areas and is integrated throughout other camp activities, including making footprint murals in teva, mezuzot with our new 3D printers in robotics, mizrach signs in shiur, and jewelry using UV beads in mada (science).

General Camp News
Ramah Outdoors
Ramah Outdoors specialty camp had an active and busy week of hiking, trail exploration, fire building, shelter building, canoeing, and an overnight camping trip here at camp-- the highlight of our week! We didn't let the rain stop us from discovering all that nature has to offer. In fact, we used the conditions as an opportunity to learn about water collection and purification, as well as how to adjust to adverse weather conditions while in the great outdoors. The full moon shone down as we prepared our dinner and roasted marshmallows for s'mores over our campfire. Guided by Saul Zebovitz, an Eagle Scout and experienced outdoorsman, along with our Ramah Outdoors staff, our campers gained confidence while developing their outdoors skills. Limited space is available in Ramah Sport. Click here for more information.
Team Building
Our team building activities throughout camp provide our campers with many opportunities to develop confidence, trust, and work together. As we welcome our second session campers, we spent the week creating bunk unity and cohesiveness during various team building exercises. Through their exploration of the low ropes course, campers develop invaluable teamwork skills while learning to trust their own physical abilities and strength. They push themselves to reach new heights and accomplish new feats. Led by tzevet member Jared Abrams, campers feel a deep sense of accomplishment at conquering new challenges each time they visit our low ropes course. Kol hakavod to our campers!
