  Kol Ramah, Week 1
An Achla Start to Summer!
The Word of the Summer Is...
Achla ! Achla means awesome and our first week was just that. Chanichim (campers) are getting to know their counselors, reconnecting with friends from last summer, meeting new friends, enjoying all of the activities at camp. Our first Shishi al Ha'Migrash, our weekly Friday Shabbat celebration, of the summer was filled with energy and ruach. We wish our Ramah family a Shabbat Shalom!
How are you? Achla!

Host Israeli Staff Members
Join us in welcoming 46 new shlichim (Israeli staff members) to the Ramah family and 12 returning shlichim. Our shlichim love to spend Shabbatot and weekends with the Ramah family. It's their opportunity to enjoy the greater New York area, get to know you, catch up on sleep, enjoy a home cooked meal, and even do some laundry. If you are able to host shlichim, kindly  complete this form . We will be in touch with you if we can make a successful match. Thank you very much!

Spotlight on STEM
Our expanded STEM program is an exciting new addition to camp. Each edah will focus on a unique project including 3D printing, animation, and Scratch coding, an internet-based programming tool. There's still time to register for Ramah Tech Specialty Camp which runs from July 16 - July 20. Click here for more information.
We provide our campers with snacks and meals throughout the day. For the safety of our campers and staff with food allergies, we ask that no food of any kind be sent to camp with your children .

Important Procedures
Your children are having so much fun here that we encourage you to keep them in camp until the regular dismissal time. We understand that there are extenuating circumstances that occasionally require you to pick up your child early. If so, please follow these procedures:
  • Your child may be picked up by a parent or by an authorized adult previously designated in your CampMinder account. For any changes, please email travel@ramahnyack.org.
  • Please call camp at (845) 358-6240 or email travel@ramahnyack.org before noon on the day of the change and let us know what time you will be picking up your child.The office staff will notify your child's counselor and bus driver of the revised dismissal plans.
  • Upon your arrival for early dismissal, please park in the Gould parking lot (across from the entrance to Nyack High School). Please obtain a visitor's pass from our security staff and proceed to the camp office where you will meet your child and sign him or her out. Please do not take your child out of camp without signing out.
  • All early pick-ups must take place BEFORE 3:30 p.m. After 3:30 p.m., pick-ups will be carpool pick-ups in the Gould parking lot at regular dismissal.
